Florida’s second junior day attracted one of the top wide receiver prospects in the country. By the time 2015 Tennessee commitment Preston Williams (6-4, 180, Hampton, GA Lovejoy) left the campus Saturday he was thoroughly impressed by everything in Gainesville.
“The visit went great, I love this place,” Williams said. “Florida is a good place to be. It’s not all about football here. This place right here is a great place.”
Coming off a visit to Clemson last week, Williams says the time in Gainesville was vastly superior.
“I just visited Clemson last week but this visit to Florida killed Clemson,” Williams said. “It was way better than Clemson. I visit Alabama next week and Georgia. I will also visit South Carolina and Tennessee again.”
Williams got the full campus tour, but it was the combination of facilities and coaches that really made the difference.
“We got to see the training facilities and all the facilities,” Williams said. “I got to see everything that I needed to see and I’m about to go do my on walking around and research now. My favorite of the visit was getting to know all of the coaches in the conference room.”
Williams got to spend some time with Florida receivers coach Joker Phillips, who could possibly be his position coach some day. Williams appreciated the positive message he got from Phillips.
“Coach Joker is a great guy, man,” Williams said. “He’s telling me that he can help me be a better person later on in life off the field. You want to be successful so that’s good.”
Despite being a Tennessee commit for months now Williams says he’s committed but keeping his options open.
“I’m still committed to Tennessee,” Williams said. “I’m committed but I’m very open to other schools.”
