Is Addison Williams Firm With USC?

Westlake (Atlanta, GA) star cornerback Addison Williams committed to the Gamecocks back in May, but rumors have swirled recently that the 3-star prospect is having second thoughts and plans to check out other options. Read inside to find out where the Gamecocks currently stand with Williams.

Williams, who plans to graduate in December and enroll early at his college choice, stated that he is considering taking a couple of other visits, but his commitment to South Carolina is still solid.

"My commitment (to South Carolina) is 95%. Right now I'm really not sure if I will take any other visits, but I may still (decide to visit other schools)."

Williams will be making his official visit to South Carolina this weekend, and while he is still contemplating possible trips to Kentucky and/or Mississippi State, he says the Gamecocks are his number one choice for a reason.

"For one, they're an up and coming program, and also because I'd have the chance to play early. I'm coming in to play as a true freshman. Also, all the coaches are pretty nice."

Williams, who many analysts have compared to former Georgia Bulldog cornerback Tim Jennings because of his 5'9 frame and physical style of play, described what strengths he brings to the table when on the gridiron.

"My strengths as a player are my confidence and my ability to play man to man coverage."

While he is confident in his ability, Williams says he is always looking for areas to improve.

"I'm still looking to improve in every aspect of my game and just fine tune everything."

In what is becoming a popular trend within recruiting circles, Williams says that he keeps in touch with a couple of other highly touted prospects that he has met through the recruiting process.

"I talk to a few other guys. I talk with Stephen Garcia and Morgan Burnett out of North Clayton High School. (Stephen Garcia and I) just talk about where we stand in recruiting. It seems to me that he's leaning towards coming to South Carolina. He told me that he was like 90% sure."

Lastly, Williams wanted to share one final message with Gamecock fans who may be concerned about him wavering from his commitment to USC.

"Tell the Carolina fans that my commitment is firm, and I'll be up there this weekend."
