Taking a blind date while committed to another can be tricky business and for Alabama commitment LeMarcus Williams, his visit to Ole Miss was nothing short of an eye opening experience.
"It was a great visit," Williams said Sunday afternoon. "It was really an eye opening experience for me. Ole Miss' academic presentation was amazing; it was very uplifting for me."
While Williams remains committed to the Crimson Tide, his trip to Ole Miss has moved is previous solid commitment to a "soft" status.
"I'm committed still (to Alabama), but Ole Miss is definitely now in the running," Williams said. "I really bonded great with their players, Marshay (Green) was already one of my best friends, but the rest of the players became good friends this weekend."
When asked to rate his Ole Miss visit on a scale of 1 to 10, Williams answered quickly.
"It was a 10," Williams said. "It can't get much better than the time I had at Ole Miss."
Williams plans on sitting down and discussing the visit with his parents before making a final decision, but apparently not until after the New Orleans Saints game.
"As you can tell by the noise we are watching the Saints game," Williams said. "I haven't had a chance to talk to them yet."
When asked he a timeframe for making a decision, Williams hesitated.
"I'm going to make it last as long as possible," Williams said. "I don't want to rush into or make what will turn out to be a bad decision. I want to make certain it's the best choice for me, whereever I decide to go."
Williams, a 6-foot-1, 285-pound defensive tackle, recorded 76 tackles as a junior and over 90 as a senior.
He has been committed to Alabama since last June and made an official visit to meet new Tide head coach Nick Saban last weekend.
Williams is expecting to receive an in-home visit from the Rebel coaching staff in the near future.
