Williams sets third visit to Notre Dame
Defensive end Andrew Williams of McDonough (Ga.) has visited Notre Dame twice, and he's recently planned a third trip to South Bend for this spring. "I just got off the phone with Coach [Brian] Kelly and Coach [Scott] Booker, and I'm going to take a visit to Notre Dame in April during my spring break," Williams said. "I've just got to talk with my parents first. I want to take a look at Notre Dame's spring practices and get to know some more of their players. I've already visited Notre Dame twice, and I loved it. It's a great school." Williams says he's high on Notre Dame's priority list, something that has caught the attention of the 6-foot-4, 238-pound defensive end. "I like Notre Dame right now because of the position that they are recruiting me," Williams said. "After I visited last time, they told me I was their No. 1 for the CAT linebacker. They told me today after reviewing everyone's film that I'm still No. 1 on their board. Early playing time is also something that Notre Dame could offer Williams. "They are only going to take one CAT linebacker in this class, and they want me. They will only have two on scholarship, so regardless if I don't start, I'll probably get to play a lot as a freshman," he said. Williams isn't listing any favorites, but with 36 offers, he plans on using this spring to develop a list of schools he'll consider as final contenders. "Once I visit places for spring practices and spring games, I'll narrow my list," he said. "I don't have any other spring visits set in stone, but I'll probably visit a few places I haven't seen a lot, like Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee. I would like to commit before my senior year starts because it will be a lot less stressful." Williams believes that Oregon and Oklahoma State are the next schools closest to offering. Meanwhile, he says he wants to stay focused on his game. "I'm not worried about size right now," Williams said. "I'm focused on speed and my moves. I want to get faster." In 2012, Williams had 60 tackles, 10 tackles for loss, and 18 sacks.
