"I did not end up going. We lost in the quarterfinals (basketball) on Friday night, and I was just too tired. Besides, I know I am going to Ole Miss so I did not see any point in going," commented Alex Williams.
How did the Rebels land one of the country's elite prospects
out of LSU's back yard?
"I went up to their camp last summer. I do
not know how to explain it. I just felt at home. And then I went back to their
Jr Day a couple of weeks ago, it just reassured my feelings towards Ole Miss.
Besides, my (head) coach use to coach Frank (Wilson) at Ole Miss. I have known
him for a long time. He has really looked out for me past football. He is like
family to me."
One way to get a good gauge on a lineman's footwork

I probably will only play football at Ole Miss unless they want me to play both.
I know where I am going to make my money (laugh)."

Louisville, and LSU have offered me. Clemson is waiting on my highlight tape.
They should be offering me pretty soon.
