Mike Williams thoughts on USC visit

Mike Williams, 6'5, 205 pound wide receiver from Tampa Plant (Fla) took an official visit to USC this past weekend and he couldn't have chosen a better game to view as he saw the Trojans put together their best performance of the year. I had a chance to talk to this Blue Chipper tonight and he shared his thoughts on the weekend.

"Overall, the whole trip was good", remarked Williams. "Billy Hart, I hung out with him on Friday night, but Saturday night after the game, I was with Alex Holmes." Having never been to Los Angeles, Williams took in some of the sights of the city for the first time and came away with positive feelings, "We went out to Beverly Hills, saw the place a little bit. It was tight. I liked it." The big receiver also spent a lot of time around campus this weekend and spent time talking with the coaches and players, "Coach Orgeron, Coach Wilson,….a lot of the guys. I like them all. They were cool."

Williams also witnessed the Trojans impressive 27-0 victory over UCLA and gave his thoughts on the game, "It was good." And what about the Norm Chow offense he saw in action? "I liked it. I think I could see myself in it."

Williams added that the trip improved USC's standing in his eyes, but not enough to make them his leader. He still claims no leader out his list of favorites as he noted "I mean, it's probably still the same. Florida, USC, Purdue, Virginia, Alabama, and North Carolina." This was his first official visit and he still has trips lined up with Purdue for December 1st and Virginia for December 8th. Williams also added that he is far from committing anywhere and that he plans on making his decision close to signing day.

Tampa Plant's season ended at 5-5, but Williams solidified his position as one of the premier receivers in the nation with impressive numbers. He had 32 catches for 740 yards and 9 touchdowns. That's an average of over 23 yards a catch! He was also a standout at strong safety with 4 interceptions, 7 sacks, and "50 or 60" tackles.
