Next month will be a fun one for Clemson commitment Jordan Williams. The four-star defensive end from Cox High in Virginia Beach, Va., will make his official visit in January as well as play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Jan. 7.
Williams said he “can’t wait” to take his official. What is he looking forward to the most about it?
“Just really spending time with the commits and coaches,” Williams told The Clemson Insider. “Clemson has shown me everything I have wanted to see.”
“I’m also looking forward to seeing the new facility because it should be almost done by my official,” he added. “It’s progressing each time I see it.”
Yesterday, Williams attended the I-64 Bowl at the Virginia Beach Sportsplex as a spectator. The annual high school showcase features some of the best players from Virginia.
“It was great to see some of Virginia’s top talent go at it,” Williams said.
Williams is ready to suit up in his own all-star game, which will take place at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.
He will be the first player in his school’s history to participate in the prestigious U.S. Army All-American game.
“Very excited to go down to San Antonio and compete,” he said.
Williams, who committed to Clemson in August, was happy to see Clemson add commitments in the 2018 class this week from Cartersville (Ga.) five-star quarterback Trevor Lawrence and Central (S.C.) four-star linebacker Jake Venables.
Lawrence committed on Thursday before Venables gave his pledge on Sunday morning.
“A lot of huge pickups really,” Williams said. “I think the 2018 class is going to be great, and I don’t think we are even close to being done.”
As for his own class, Williams is optimistic about Clemson’s chances of landing priority target and Roswell (Ga.) four-star safety Xavier McKinney.
“I feel good about our chances,” Williams said. “I think he really likes us and would be a huge addition for us.”
Williams visited Clemson for the Troy, N.C. State and South Carolina games this season. The 6-foot-5, 250-pounder is a top-five prospect in Virginia and top-150 prospect nationally.
