It's always been the prevailing theory that Lake Marion (S.C.) four-star WR Mike Williams would play his college ball in-state.
Monday following the Gamecock Showcase Camp, Williams confirmed that he is down to the two major in-state programs: South Carolina and Clemson.
The nation's No. 27 wide receiver, according to Scout, says he's going to make a decision at the end of the month.
Williams gave his thoughts on both programs.
South Carolina: "I'm what they're looking for. It's a good place for me. I can fit in their offense. They can use me."
Clemson: "They have a great offense. I think I could fit in real good there too, but they're kind of stacked right now [at receiver] so."
The 6-foot-4, 185-pound receiver says both schools have said he could play as a freshman.
Williams says he and South Carolina receivers coach Steve Spurrier, Jr. talk almost every day on Facebook.
"That was my first time working out in front of him and him getting to coach me, and it was good," Williams said of his time at the Showcase.
"It was real good. I've talked to him and met him a bunch of times, but I haven't had the time to actually work out with him."
Williams also got to know USC quarterback commitment Connor Mitch at the event.
"We went together a couple of times," Williams said. "He can throw the ball good. We talked about (playing together). He was just saying how I was a good receiver. I told him he was a good quarterback, and he just said we could hook up."
Williams says he's planning on having a media gathering at his school to announce the decision. Until then, he's done with visits and isn't saying much else about the decision.
"I'm just going to talk to my family about it -- that's it."
