Georgia De-Commit Likes Wisconsin

Opening up his recruiting after being committed to Georgia for almost two years, Monroe (GA) George Walton Academy Stanley Williams is looking for the right fit, and now has a Wisconsin offer to consider.

Committed to Georgia for almost two full years, Monroe (GA) George Walton Academy tailback Stanley Williams thought he had found the perfect the school, but that was before the scholarship offers really started to pour in.

Deciding he needed to take a step back to find the perfect place for him, Williams has plenty of opportunity to choose from, including a scholarship from Wisconsin and running back coach Thomas Hammock.

"It was very humbling experience getting that offer and to just pick up another offer from a top school in the nation is great," Williams told Badger Nation, as Hammock offered Williams over the phone. "I just have to keep working hard. He is a great guy and I know he has worked with so many great running backs and gets them prepared for the next level. Montee Ball went on to have a great career at Wisconsin, so he knows what he is doing. I talk to him once a week and our relationship keeps on getting better."

Rated the No.48 tailback in the nation by Fox Sports Next, Williams has offers from Arizona, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia Tech, LSU, South Carolina and Tennessee, but recognizes what the Badgers' tradition has done for players at the tailback position.

"I know they run a great program and have great coaches," said Williams. "They are always one of the top schools in the nation. They just do everything well and I know it is a family place. Great players have come from there and they get the education that they need too."

The 5-9, 192-pound Williams finished his junior season with 1,948 rushing yards and 24 touchdowns – doing it all in less than 200 carries – and leading his team one game short of the state championship.

Now shifting his attention to taking a couple of visits and a couple more spring games, Williams has already visited Clemson, South Carolina and Georgia, but mentioned the possibility of a visit to Wisconsin this summer.

"(Recruiting) is going great," Williams said. "I am just taking it step by step checking out schools. I will hopefully start narrowing down the schools and taking some more visits and seeing how everything turns out."
