UGA was once second-to-last on Jamyest Williams’ list of top schools, but the Bulldogs continue to make ground on the 4-star cornerback from Archer High School.
Over the weekend, Williams unofficially visited UGA for its game against South Carolina and came away impressed. So much so, in fact, that the Bulldogs could be on the rise again.
“I think they’ll move up a little bit,” Williams told the AJC’s Dawgnation.com. “It felt real. I can see myself there. When I was at the game — because I was sitting in the front row — I was able to see how it felt and take in the vibe.”
Williams told the AJC’s Dawgnation.com last month that UGA was No. 3 or No. 4 on his list behind schools like Clemson and Florida State. He maintains that those two spots haven’t changed, but it appears that UGA is trailing right behind.
The 5-foot-9, 170-pounder, who is rated as the No. 6 athlete in the country, was most impressed by the Bulldogs defense, particularly with cornerback Malkom Parrish’s play.
“I love the way he played,” Williams said. “He’s a small guy just like me, but he can cover and he made plays.”
Williams confirmed to the AJC’s Dawgnation.com that he’ll return for another visit on Oct. 3 when UGA hosts Alabama.
He attended this weekend’s game with Archer teammate and UGA target E.J. Price.
