Elite DB to visit Clemson

4-star 2017 athlete Jamyest Williams from Lawrenceville, Georgia will visit Clemson on Saturday according to his Twitter account.

Williams wants to play defensive back at the college level.

TigerNet spoke with Williams last year, and he said that "Clemson is a great school, great coaching staff. I enjoy talking to Coach (Mike) Reed and Coach (Tony) Elliot." The factors in his recruitment he said will be key relationships he forms, the academic programs and how the school connects with him and the family.

He has early offers from Alabama, Arizona, Auburn, Baylor, Boston College, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Clemson, Colorado, Colorado State, Duke, East Michigan, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisville, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Michigan State, Missouri, North Carolina, North Carolina State, North Texas, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Stanford, Tennessee, Tennessee State, Texas A&M, Vanderbilt, Wake Forest and Wisconsin.

Two visits for Williams to Clemson was the 2015 spring game, and the 2014 rivalry win against South Carolina.

During his sophomore campaign, he rushed for 700 yard and eight touchdowns, hauled in 35 catches for 452 yards and five more touchdowns. Defensively, he had 60 tackles and two interceptions.

As a freshman, he had 32 tackles, 16 PBU's, and two interceptions. On offense, he had 400 all-purpose yards and a touchdown. The highly coveted prospect was named first team DB MaxPrep's Freshman All-American(2013) and MVP of the Freshman Army All-American game in San Antonio, Texas (2013). He has run a 4.40 in the 40 yard dash at several camps in the last year.

The Tigers were the first program to have offered all three of these prospects from Archers' football program - Jamyest Williams, Richard LeCounte and Deangelo Gibbs.
