TigerNet spoke to Williams back during his three-day visit to Clemson for the All-In Cookout.
“The whole visit was great," Williams said. "It was definitely great to be able to get around all of the commits and all of the recruits and all of the coaches and the different families,” Williams told TigerNet. “It was great to get back on campus and eat all of the food and play all of the games and just be a part of everything. My visit the next day seeing all of the facilities and meeting with all of the academic people and spending time with people other than the football coaches that I see every day was definitely awesome. I was able to sit and listen to them talk about what I would be going through every day and different things they would have me going through with my parents."
