Williams: Decision sooner than later


One of the top prospects on campus this week at Clemson was 4-star corner Jamyest Williams. The All-American didn’t spend his time on the practice fields, but instead learned more about what the Tigers had to offer.

How did the Grayson High standout enjoy the visit?

“It went great. I spent a lot of time with the staff especially Coach V (Venables),” replied Williams.

Jamyest didn’t workout this week so how did he spend his time?

“Basically they just let me know that they really want me and that there are only two DB spots left. One for CB and one for safety. Coach V would love for me to be that one,” he said. “I took a tour with CJ Avery and spent the rest of the time just mingling with different members of the staff.

“Really at this point it’s not much more that they can show me. The ball is in my court now and I just need to figure out what I wanna do. So a decision could be looming sooner rather then later.”

A decision could come any time this summer by Jamyest who has a very tight bond with defensive backs coach Mike Reed.

“My relationships between myself, my coaches and my dad are real important to me,” he said. “The relationship I have with Coach Reed is the strongest of all the coaches. But when the defensive coordinator expresses so much interest in you on such a high profile team you got to pay attention to it. I would say how I’m feeling now, it could be by the end of the summer, maybe sooner, maybe later.”

The prize recruit spend time hanging out with Grayson teammate Chase Brice and several other Clemson commitments this week.

“It’s always good.  They wanna build something special at Clemson,” Williams said. “They want great players players with what I call the dog mentality to play with them. So they just tried to encourage me to jump aboard the Tiger Train.”

A return trip is planned for July.

“Yes, I will be on Campus for the Cookout,” said Williams.

The last question we asked Williams was if today was signing day where would he sign?

“Look at you, no comment,” he said. “Let’s just say Clemson would be in the final group.”
