ESPN 300 WR Taj Williams has top three

9/12/2012

ESPN 300 wide receiver Taj Williams (Tallahassee, Fla./Lincoln) on Wednesday named a top three of Florida State, Alabama and South Carolina. The 6-foot-4, 178-pound four-star athlete will be at Florida State this weekend to watch the Seminoles take on Wake Forest.

"My top three schools right now are South Carolina, Alabama and Florida State," Williams said. "With Florida State, it's right here at home, it's a great place and I'm actually going to visit there this weekend for the game against Wake Forest.

"With Alabama, I've been there a few times, I went to a camp there this summer. I feel comfortable there. I just really like Alabama and what they have to offer. At South Carolina, I really like the coaches. I haven't been there yet, but I definitely plan on taking an official visit there sometime this season. I'll officially visit all three schools, I just don't know the dates yet."

Williams, who totaled four catches and a touchdown in his only game of the season last week, said he's looking for a school with good academics as much as what they have to offer with football. In addition to playing wide receiver, Williams is also a standout cornerback for the Trojans.

"All three of the schools I like said that I could play either position if I go there," Williams said. "They said whatever I want to play I could play. I prefer receiver, but I'll play whichever position will help my team win."

Williams said he will likely make his decision by the end of his senior season.
