Jordan Williams says Clemson will get his final visit

Jordan Williams’ busy summer will end with the announcement of his college choice on August 6th, but a trip to Clemson for the All In Cookout will happen first.

The 4-star 2017 defensive end out of Virginia Beach (VA) Cox recently narrowed his final list of schools to four with Clemson, Virginia, Virginia Tech, and Tennessee making the final cut. Clemson also gets the final visit.

He is the No. 238 player in the ESPN300 and has 28 offers including from Clemson, Florida, Marshall, Maryland, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Notre Dame, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Purdue, South Carolina, Southern California, Temple, Texas State, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest.

He spent most of last week at Nike’s The Opening in Eugene, Oregon, and came away impressed with what he saw. He also had to listen to current Clemson commits Amari Rodgers, Hunter Johnson and Tee Higgins extoll the virtues of being a Tiger.

“The Opening was great,” Williams told TigerNet. “The coaches I had were great, and I felt like I learned a lot. It was great seeing those guys (the Clemson commits). They were trying to tell me all about Clemson and how I would be a great fit in the recruiting class. But overall it was a great experience.”

Williams said he plans to be on hand for next weekend’s Cookout, the final recruiting push of the summer with invitations extended to elite 2017 prospects.

“I'm definitely going to make it to the All In Cookout," Williams said. "That's the last visit I have planned and I'm going to let the school that I'm going to know that it will be my last visit. I'd like to see where I would be staying my freshman year if I went there. That's what I've been doing lately is comparing dorms. I want to sit down with academics and discuss my major and to see if they have it and what classes I would have to take and all of my credits I would need, in case I do go there because different schools have different standards for different majors, so I definitely want to discuss that and see where that all plays out.”

Williams said he’s pretty sure he knows which school he’s going to pick.

“It’s just a feeling I have,” he said. “I trust the coaches and the program has everything I need. I am pretty sure I know. I just need to let the coaches know.”

Williams did say that fans shouldn’t read too much into Clemson getting the final visit.

“I had promised the (Clemson) coaches that I would be there,” he said. “I gave them my word. I told the other schools that because of the timing of everything, I would only be able to take one more visit and I had promised Clemson that visit. They all understood that, and now I’m going to take this final visit and then get ready for the announcement.”

The 6-5, 245-pounder had 39 tackles, 13 tackles for loss, five sacks, two interceptions, seven pass deflections, a forced fumble and recovered two fumbles including one returned for a touchdown. He wants to play defensive end in college.
