Kellen Williams discusses Alabama

Kellen Williams has changed positions this season and moved to offensive guard, where he is projected to play for Alabama. The 6-4, 277-pound linemen talks about his future team, the Alabama Crimson Tide.

"I went to the game with my parents, but we didn't go in the stadium. We went over and tailgated with some of my parents friends, and went home to watch the game on TV," Kellen Williams explained from his home in Snellville, (Ga.).

"I was kind of shocked at first, but coach [Nick] Saban and our coaching staff simply out-coached Coach [Mark] Richt, and our guys out-played their guys."

"I thought we (Alabama) played a great game."

Scout.com asked Williams if he had any plans to take official visits to other schools.

"No sir. I'm about as solid as anyone can be to the University of Alabama. I would say my commitment is concrete," he stated emphatically.

"I love Alabama. The fans are second to none around the country. They care about you, and they are always there cheering for you - no matter what happens someone is always there to pick you up. That's what I like about Alabama football more than anything."

"The football team and the fans eat, breathe, and sleep football 365 days per year. They have the most passionate fans in the country. It is a special place for anyone who loves football."

"The tradition there takes a back seat to no one around the country. The fans treat you like you are their own children, they care about you, and they care what happens to you."

Williams plans to attend games this season.

"I am going to the Alabama/Kentucky game this week, and I plan to go to all the home games the remainder of the season," he said.

Williams says he has a message for all Alabama fans.

"When I attend the games at Bryant-Denny I have fans come up and tell me ‘Roll Tide," and things like that. They shake my hand and wish me luck," he said.

"I am always with my parents at the games, and I think some of them know my parents are Georgia fans, but that's all right, I enjoy talking to the fans while I'm there."
