Williams Heart Is In Tallahassee
P.J. Williams was a key component to the Southeast squad at ESPN's Gridiron Kings in Orlando, Fla. Although his team fell short of the championship game, Williams had a solid showing over the two-day event and Scout.com's Recruiting team took notice. Southeast Recruiting Manager, Chad Simmons was on hand at the event and says he likes what he saw from Williams. "P.J. Williams had a very strong two days at Gridiron Kings. He showed very good coverage skills and great range in the defensive backfield. He closed on the ball well and got his hands on a lot of passes," Simmons said. Williams has gained a lot of exposure after participating in several events over the summer. While other programs outside of Florida State are now taking notice to the 2012 safety, Williams says his heart is still in Tallahassee. "I like pretty much everything about Florida State. They have been my school ever since I was young so there was no question where I wanted to go. I committed right on the spot and I am real happy with my decision," Williams said. Williams says he is looking for a school where he feels comfortable and has an opportunity to grow and develop into an NFL player. Williams says he not only found all of these qualities in Florida State, but also adds the Seminole's 2012 class could be one of the best. "I love all of the guys and I am excited to play with all of them. We get along and we are all some real good players so I'm glad we are coming together, we are a real good class," Williams said. Williams says Dante Fowler is one player in particular he is excited to have in Florida State's 2012 recruiting class. "Dante Fowler is my boy, I talked to him earlier this week while I was at Florida State. We were just talking, he wrote me on Facebook yesterday and stuff like that. I think his commitment with Florida State will stick, I know other programs are trying really hard to get him but at the end of the day I think he'll be a Nole. He is a great player and I am real excited to be on his team," Williams said. Although Williams says his commitment to Florida State is 100%, the Ocala native says he will still take official visits this fall. "I'm probably going to visit Miami, Alabama, Florida State, South Florida, and probably one other school but I don't know yet. I am just looking at these schools but as of right now none of them are really standing out to me," Williams said. Williams recently took a trip down to the University of Miami for the Cane's camp and after an impressive showing Williams says the coaching staff extended an offer. "Miami has been coming at me real hard lately, I would say they are recruiting me the hardest at this point. They tell me I can come in and play early and just be apart of the "U" Family. Miami is a good program and I am going to take a look at them. It's a private school so they have small classes and they have a need for defensive backs and stuff like that so I'm looking at them, they have some good history," Williams said. When asked if there is anything Miami or any other program can do to make him de-commit from his dream school, Florida State, Williams said, "I don't know, I don't know we will have to see."
