’s high school camp and will take an official visit when the Tigers take on Georgia in the season opener.

Stanley “Boom” Williams, a 4-star prospect out of Bethlehem (GA) George Walton Academy is a former University of Georgia commit who has been on the Tigers’ radar for a while, but the interest has been taken up a notch on both sides after the de-commitment of Dalvn Cook a few weeks ago.

Williams told TigerNet that the visit was his best so far.

“It was the best visit I have taken so far,” he said. “Everything about the visit was great and I can’t wait to get back up there.”

He then detailed his thoughts on the visit and what he saw out of Clemson’s offense.

“I went up and watched the game and then had a meeting with Coach [Tony] Elliott and Coach [Chad] Morris,” he said. “Springtime is just a time to see where you are. They didn’t play the starters that much so we only got to see them for one series. They came out and looked like they were ready for the upcoming season. I thought they played the game well and wrapped up what they have done so far this year.”

What message did Clemson’s coaches have for the 5-9, 190-pound speedster who has been clocked at 4.39 in the 40-?

“I was talking to Coach Elliott and he was telling me he would be happy to have me as one of his running backs at Clemson,” Williams said. “I just need to do what I need to in order to make it happen. Talking with Coach Morris, he obviously calls the plays and he was telling me how he would get me the ball. He was just saying that he would put the ball in my hands and put me in the best position to score.”

Williams said he is still taking a look at all of his top schools and doesn’t want to name a leader, but it was clear he is excited about the chance to possibly play with fellow Peach State star and 2014 Clemson commit Deshaun Watson Deshaun Watson

“I’m pretty much just exploring my options. Clemson is one of my top schools, and I am talking with them,” he said. “I want to stay in touch, and I will definitely be there for camp, and Deshaun will be there for camp. We will definitely both be there for the first game when they open with Georgia, and I am looking forward to that.

“I think playing with him would make us a pretty dangerous combination with me running the ball and it could open up the passing game for him to get the ball to the tight ends and wide receivers to make some plays. I think it would definitely be something different and something that everybody would want to see. I definitely think it would be fun and it is definitely an option.”

Williams said that he can’t wait to get back to Clemson for the game against the Bulldogs.

“They are two great teams and they are well-coached,” he said. “Coach Swinney and Coach [Mark ] Richt both have a reputation for winning big games. It is a big game for both teams opening up the season. It is going to be a fun game just to see how it turns out and I wish Georgia the best of luck and Clemson the best of luck.”

Last season at George Walton, Williams carried the ball 207 times for 1,928 yards and 24 touchdowns.
