Junior DE Bryson Allen-Williams of Ellenwood, GA Friday released on Twitter his top seven schools in order. "Based on the offers I have today here's my top 7 in this order SC,UF,UCLA,USC,Wash,Ga Tech,Clemson," Allen-Williams wrote. He added that if Georgia were to offer, the Bulldogs would move into his top three.
Allen-Williams camped at USC last summer and visited for the Georgia game. "I have a great relationship with Coach Ward," he said. "I like the coaches. They are like a family." Allen-Williams also is attracted by what the Gamecocks are doing on the field. "You can tell South Carolina is dominate this season," he said.
This season Allen-Williams had 92 tackles with 17 sacks. He says Ward has outlined plans for him. "He said I can play rush end or stand up and drop back in coverage," he said.
Allen-Williams said USC has a small lead on Florida right now and is keeping his options open. Florida and USC were the first schools to offer. "South Carolina leads because of the tight relationship between Coach Ward and me and my mom," Allen-Williams said.
He visited Clemson last weekend and the Tigers offered. "Coach Swinney has really turned it around," he said. "They are trying to start a relationship."
He does not plan to make a decision for several months.
