VALDOSTA, Ga. – Justin Williams is part of a very talented senior class at Valdosta High School. …
Another Valdosta star
"I did not expect an offer from LSU at all," said Justin Williams. "Coach [Ron] Cooper was at my school on Monday and I said hello to him, but I did not hear anything about an offer from LSU." "I got home from school and opened up my mail and I had a letter from LSU telling me that I had been offered a full athletic scholarship." "I couldn't believe it. I ran into the other room and gave my mom a hug and told he about it. I called Jay Rome and Malcolm Mitchell asking them if the offer was real. They told me that it was and I was just in shock. I was so excited about it." The offer from LSU was Williams' first and Les Miles being the first head coach to officially offer puts them in good position. "They are pretty high on my list now and them offering me first makes me very interested in them. They have won a couple of National Championships (2003 and 2007) recently and they are a top program. I still cannot believe that they have offered me. I received one letter from them inviting me to one of their Junior Days, but that was it. They weren't showing a lot of interest in me at all." The Tigers were first, but they definitely will not be the last to offer this 6-foot, 195 pound linebacker. He is hearing a lot from a couple of schools in the Carolinas and one of them could pull the trigger next. "North Carolina State and South Carolina are sending me a lot of mail and they are showing me more interest than anyone else right now," he said. "UAB and Georgia are showing some interest too, but I think South Carolina and North Carolina State could offer me soon. Jay told me once one school offers me, some others will too." "I can't wait to see who is next." Williams had 104 tackles, eight tackles for loss, and two sacks in 2009. He also played some running back for the Wildcats.
