Williams Ready to Fill the Gap


Filling the void left by senior defensive tackle #99 Jarvis Jenkins next year will be extremely tough for the Tiger’s next year, but 2011 Clemson commit DeShawn Williams would like to do just that.

“It looks like Clemson could be losing a lot of D-lineman to the NFL this year… so when I come in I’m going to work hard and rep # 99,” said Williams.

DeShawn was one of the first players to commit to Clemson a year ago in June, his commitment to Clemson is very solid.

“I’m All In; I’m not going anywhere else,” said Williams.

The biggest reason why the 6’1” 301 lbs. defensive tackle from Daniel high school, choose Clemson was Coach Brooks, and his mom was the biggest factor that led him to that decision.

The Daniel standout is now on the other end of the recruiting process, he has been trying to get other 2011 recruits to commit to Clemson.

“I have been trying to recruit for Clemson; I’ve been on Lateek Townsend and Phillip Dukes the most,” said Williams.

The coaches have been telling the top defender to just keep working hard, and DeShawn has been taking this summer to do just.  He has been working out with his team and getting ready for the season.

“Daniel will do good this year just got to keep working hard and just finish,” said Williams.
