Williams: "I Love Georgia"

When you are one of the most sought after players in the South you have a lot of options.

For Lovejoy WR Preston Williams it is great to have options, and he's going to take advantage of those options – even if he is committed to Tennessee. On Monday, Williams and his mother visited the staff at Georgia, and the visit went well.

"I love Georgia - I thought it was great," he said. "The atmosphere was great. It felt like home. I am from Georgia, and all of the coaches were available."

Williams talked briefly about his recruiting with Georgia in 2013, when the Bulldogs didn't see overwhelmingly interested in him. He said that's not the case any more.

"I don't know what it was," he admitted. "They were not showing much love, but it wasn't like it was the end of my senior year."

So because it is still very early in the process Williams gave Georgia antoher look, and the boys in red and black are happy he did.

"This was my first my first time going to Georgia. It is a great place. They are high on academics and want you to be successful as a person. They want you to be able to do something after football. They stressed that a lot," Williams said.

But Georgia is clear that they want Williams to catch a football or two while he's on campus.

"Coach Richt was taking about how I am a difference maker – a playmaker. They told me that Georgia has a lot of possession receivers; that I am a different type of receiver; that I would play my freshman year.

Months after picking the Vols, Williams said he thought he would have moved on from the Bulldogs now, but that's not the case.

"I didn't expect it to be the way it was. Georgia kind of grew on me. I like the tour they gave me. It is real tough being committed and visiting schools. I just want people to be real. I don't want to be surprised. I don't want any hype. I want it to be real. I am comfortable with visits. UT isn't purring pressure on me about the visits – they are just telling me to stay strong. Some people want to get out of the state – I don't have any problem with that."

Williams didn't say what would be the right decision for him, but one thing is certain – he is going to have to figure everything out along the way.

"You have to talk to people that are not really affiliated wit the schools. I need to talk to people that are not going to lie to you," he said.

Meanwhile, Williams will continue to put the pieces of the puzzle together over the coming months – and that will include another visit to Georgia.

"I plan on going back up to Athens," he said. "You don't want to waste your time with a bad visit, and I didn't – it was a good visit."
