Former Georgia Bulldogs commit Stanley Williams is visiting the Clemson Tigers today for his first visit since decommitting from Georgia just a week ago. Williams is a four-star all-purpose back from Monroe, Georgia, and he is one of the top 300 prospects in the nation. Williams is currently wide open, and he has received three major offers from the Missouri Tigers, West Virginia Mountaineers, and Wisconsin Badgers already since rescinding his pledge to Mark Richt and the Bulldogs.
The Mississippi State Bulldogs, LSU Tigers, Auburn Tigers, Tennessee Volunteers, South Carolina Gamecocks, Arizona Wildcats, Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, Kentucky Wildcats, and Florida State Seminoles have all offered Williams. The Oregon Ducks also offered, but Williams has eliminated both the Ducks and Bulldogs. Several major programs have interest but haven’t offered yet, and I could see Scott Booker and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish become the next school to offer the four-star RB.
Williams was committed to the Bulldogs since the summer of 2011, and it will be interesting to see how the top ten all-purpose back’s recruitment proceeds. He has blazing, sub-4.4 speed, and he has been a standout recruit for quite some time. The 247Composite rates Williams as the 26th-best recruit in the state of Georgia, and the 5’8″, 189 pound George Walton Academy star affirmed his commitment with Georgia throughout March. That’s when things were in doubt as to whether or not Williams would remain committed to UGA, and Williams decide to make the call to decommit.
Some services such as Rivals still have Georgia as a team in the mix for Williams, while others like 247Sports show in their profile that Williams is no longer interested. On Rivals’s profile, Auburn, Florida State, Georgia Tech, and Notre Dame are reportedly among the eliminated schools. In fact, FSU is listed as not having offered. Rivals also writes that the Florida Gators have not offered Williams, while ESPN has UF among the schools that have offered Williams. ESPN also has Notre Dame as an offer (no other service does), and both 247Sports and ESPN have Florida State as an offer.
Yeah, this is one crazy recruiting story.
