July 20, 2005Despite having over 20 offers already and regardless of how many more he picks up, Folkston (Ga.) Charlton County wide receiver Justin Williams has seen and heard enough to know that he is down to a final two. The Rivals250 prospect spoke to InsidetheGators.net about his two choices and where he stands in the recruiting process.
"I went on a Florida visit and a camp at Georgia. That's my two right there," said the 6-foot-2, 180 pound receiver. "Out of those two I'm sure I can find what I'm looking for."
Last summer Williams camped with the Gators, took in several games during the season and then attended a junior day in early June.
"It was cool. We went to the stadium and a lake. I got to talking to Chris Leak and some of the players. He (Leak) talked about the offense and what my role would be if I went there."
Then a week ago he camped with the Bulldogs.
Williams had this to say about his experience in Athens, "I spent time with the coaches and got real close with coach Eason. He taught me things I hadn't heard of before.
"I liked it more than I thought I was going to. I've gotta go back again. I still haven't seen that much of Georgia. I camped there but I didn't get to look around too much."
Williams has seen enough to know that Georgia and Florida are his final two.
"Georgia and Florida are the main two, really it's just those two. I like coach Meyer at Florida and coach Richt for Georgia. I plan on going on a lot of Georgia and a lot of Florida games this year. When that's done with I'll pick."
At the last Florida Junior Day in early June, Williams became close with Jacksonville (Fla.) Sandalwood athlete Jamar Hornsby. The two talked about taking some visits together, including camping at Georgia and then meeting up again in Gainesville this coming weekend.
Camping at Georgia together didn't work out as Hornsby sat it out, and now it appears as though revisiting Florida together isn't a certainty either.
"We talked a few times, he lives about 45 minutes from me. The plan was we were going to do some things together but I haven't talked to him in awhile."
Williams said he isn't sure if he'll be at Friday Night Lights or not.
"That's it for the summer I think. I was maybe going to go to Florida for another visit, but I don't know about my ride. I probably won't go.
"I don't know about my ride and I'm kind of tired, I need a break. We're practicing and working out every morning to get ready for our season and that got me wore out."
