Four-star RB picks up Irish offer

Four-star running back Ty'Son Williams of Sumter (S.C.) Crestwood has a plan, and taking an official visit to Notre Dame is a likely component.

Notre Dame needs to take at minimum one running back in the 2015 recruiting cycle in order to maintain adequate depth on the roster. Two would be welcomed.

The Irish have recently offered a trio of four-star running backs - Bolu Olorunfunmi, Ronald Jones and Ty'Son Williams.

Williams of Sumter (S.C.) Crestwood is the most recent of the three to haul in an offer.

"Coach Alford called my head coach and then I came into the office at school and talked to him on the phone," Williams said. "He said that he really liked my film and that he wants to get Brian Kelly on the phone to talk to me soon."

"I don't know too much about Notre Dame, but I know they are a historic program in Indiana that gets a lot of snow," Williams said. "I know they are a religious school, so that's good."

Williams, originally from Georgia, did not grow up a fan of either Clemson or South Carolina, though he has offers from both programs and visited each school for junior day.

"I was born in Georgia and I've moved a lot because my mom is in the military," Williams said. "I grew up a Bulldogs fan. I'm definitely interested in visiting Notre Dame. Because it's far away, it probably will have to be on an official visit."

The 6-foot-1, 202-pound back has offers from the likes of Clemson, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Michigan, North Carolina, North Carolina State and South Carolina.

"I'm going to wait a while before I come out with a top five," WIlliams said. "I'm just going to take in my offers and build relationships with coaches. Because I've moved around so much, I'm not tied down to one area."

Williams' next visit is heading back to Columbia for the Gamecocks' spring game.

"I'm shifty and I'm big at the same time," Williams said. "I would say those are my two best qualities. I'm also elusive. I'm trying to improve my footwork, so I'm running track this spring. I recently ran a 4.61 forty, so I think track will help me get that down. I'm running the 100 m, 200 m, and 4 x 1 relay."

Williams is a four-star prospect and is ranked as the No. 27 running back in the class of 2015. Top Stories
