Tyrone Williams "I'm ready to go now!"

Thomasville LB Tyrone Williams committed to the Bulls during the USF SuperBull camp back in August, and this weekend the Class 2AA region Defensive Player of the Year came in for an official visit. Read on for all the details, only on USFNation.com!

"It went real good," said Williams. "We saw the campus, facilities and got to meet the players and coaches. Everything was great."

Thomasville Linebacker Tyrone Williams committed to the Bulls this summer after attending the SuperBull camp. Since then Williams had an impressive senior season, leading a stout Thomasville defense that allowed an average of nine points per game, finishing with 62.5 tackles, 14 tackles for losses and forced one fumble. After the season Tyrone was a Class AA First-Team All-State selection, and was voted the Region 2AA region Defensive Player of the Year, and finally took his official visit.

"Everything went how I thought it would, great," said Williams. "We went out and partied with the players, but my favorite part. Oh man was the eating, all we did was eat all weekend."

Tyrone's host for the weekend was another Georgia native, Dontavia Bogan, who is also from the sane hometown, Thomasville.

"Yeah, he's from the same home town as me. We were kind of like friends. We're from rivalry schools, so everybody knows each other. It was good being with someone you know."

William's has been to several USF home games and has visited the USF campus several times, and all the visit did was ensure what he already knew.

"I saw everything with my family when we visited back this summer. Everything was nice and new, the dorms, the facilities were great," said Tyrone. "I liked the atmosphere, I loved the program, the stadium I love the coaches, and I just love the school."

Williams said he has a great relationship with Coach Canales and is real close with Coach Wally (Burnham) and had a good one-on one with Coach Leavitt.

"He really wants me to get down there, and told me to keep working hard, and to stay up on my grades."

Tyrone said he has a 2.6 GPA, and is just 1 or 2 points away from being fully qualified, but is scheduled to take the test again.

"That was my third time there so I already knew everything, but being down there with everybody, watching film, really got my blood flowing. I'm ready to go now!"
