Weakside defensive end prospect Tim Williams visited Alabama over the weekend, and he came away impressed. Williams said afterward that the Crimson Tide are his leaders ($) at the moment.
"Alabama is very strong with me right now," Williams said. "I think Alabama is probably my No. 1 school right now. It’s close to my house. My mom loved it. They really made my mom happy."
Williams is rated a four-star prospect by Rivals.com, and he ranks among the top 100 prospects in the 2013 class. He is also considering the Miami Hurricanes, and he plans a visit there next weekend. He'll visit Florida State the weekend after that.
The Hurricanes appear to have some work to do following Williams' Alabama trip; Williams said that Miami "really has to show me something." The Louisiana native likely would give LSU serious consideration as well, but he does not have a valid scholarship offer from the Tigers at this point.
