"I kinda made a verbal commitment to Rutgers," said the 5-foot-11, 190 pounder. "I knew I had to secure a spot for playing in college, I had just a few scholarships, so I committed to them."
But there is still a chance the Orange can land Williams. He plans on taking an official to syracuse this weekend.
"I have to got to see what goes on with the SU thing. With the new coaches, I'm not sure what's going on, but I didn't want to miss out on playing D1 ball. I go up there (Syracuse) this weekend, and we'll find out."
