  1. The latest on RB transfer target Ty’Son Williams July 25, 2016 Williams said on Monday that he’s been in contact with head coach Will Muschamp and discussed their plans for the future. “We’re trying to get things for school settled,” Williams said. Translation: Williams is working to get his housing in order before the end of the month. Assuming that’s all worked out in time, he’s planning to report on Aug. 1, a day before practice opens at South Carolina. When asked if he’ll be on scholarship after 2016, Williams wasn’t sure. “That’s my guess,” he said. As a freshman at North Carolina, Williams rushed for 57 yards. According to the 247Sports composite, he was ranked as the No. 22 running back in the class of 2015 and the No. 5 overall prospect in the state of South Carolina.
  2. Interview with RB Ty’Son Williams JULY 19, 2016 Link: sportstalk Former Crestwood High School and UNC RB Ty’Son Williams was accepted to USC Tuesday Former Crestwood High School and UNC RB Ty’Son Williams will return to play football in his home state. The Sumter native was accepted to USC Tuesday, which should pave the way for him to join the Gamecocks as a walk-on this season. If everything goes accordingly, Williams will redshirt as a transfer and use the GI Bill to pay his way at USC this year with the plan to go on scholarship in 2017. “The hardest part has been taken care of,” Williams said. “The main thing was being able to get into school and be accepted. When Williams left UNC, the Tar Heels prohibited him from going to a school that would land on their schedule in the next four years. The Gamecocks are scheduled to play them in 2019, so Williams had to jump through extra hurdles to be able to transfer to USC. “I just want to thank my parents, because honestly I wouldn’t be able to do it without them,” Williams said. “With them being in the military and the GI Bill, that kind of just opened up a variety of things. I could go to any school I wanted to. With that being said, I felt comfortable going back home to South Carolina, that school and there people. I just felt comfortable with that decision.” “At the end of the day, I just had to do something that I just felt was right for me and I just felt that was right.” Williams started to settle in on choosing USC in early June. He said the rebuilding of the football program intrigued him and is excited to begin working with head coach Will Muschamp. “You hear his name a lot,” Williams said of Muschamp. “He’s been in a lot of great programs. For him to just come in and me being able to change this program along with him, you know that was definitely intriguing for me.” Last season for the Tar Heels Williams rushed for 57 yards on 19 carries. As a high school senior in 2014 he rushed for 1058 yards and 14 touchdowns. But he burst on the scene as a junior with 1608 rushing yards and 16 touchdowns. “I like to consider myself an all around player,” Williams said. “I just try to be well rounded and that’s what I want to bring to the table. I can see myself contributing in a number of ways.”
  3. Former North Carolina RB accepted into school at South Carolina, decision forthcoming July 19, 2016 The wait is over. On Tuesday afternoon, after more than two weeks, Ty’Son Williams finally heard back from the University of South Carolina admissions office. “I was accepted for the fall,” he told SEC Country that afternoon. However, it’s not a done deal. Williams has yet to make up his mind if he’ll join the Gamecocks as a walk-on running back. He’ll do so “if everything goes good.” Since Williams has been accepted by the university, he’s now permitted to speak with Will Muschamp. Because they weren’t permitted to speak before Tuesday, Williams would like to hear what the head coach has to say before he reaches a decision. As of late Tuesday afternoon, no meeting had been scheduled. But that’s not the only item on the docket. Williams would also like to iron out a few details with the university. In his first and only season at North Carolina, Williams rushed for 57 yards. A graduate of Crestwood High School in Sumter, S.C., he was ranked as the No. 22 running back in the class of 2015 and the No. 5 overall prospect in the state of South Carolina. Since South Carolina and North Carolina are scheduled to play in 2019, the fifth and final year of Williams’ eligibility, he would initially join the Gamecocks as a walk-on. Georgia State and Appalachian State are also under consideration.
  4. RB Ty’Son Williams reaches out to USC & others JUNE 16, 2016 BY PHIL KORNBLUT Link: sportstalk Ty’Son Williams Former Crestwood High running back Ty’Son Williams is leaving North Carolina after one season one of his former coaches confirmed Thursday and USC is among the schools he’s contacted to see if there’s any interest. Coach Brian Jackson, now the head coach at Lakewood but a former Crestwood assistant when Williams played there, said Thursday Williams met with him today to discuss his future. “He just said he and UNC wasn’t a good fit,” Jackson said. “He’s looking to go somewhere on the D1 level and has his papers. Full release with some stipulations. He cannot transfer to another ACC school or any school who will play North Carolina in the next four years. That makes it a little bit harder to keep him in the Southeast. He said he would like to stay in the Southeast if at all possible.” Jackson recalls that Penn State was always a favorite of Williams’ in high school and his father lives in Pennsylvania. The Nittany Lions did show interest but Williams narrowed his decision to North Carolina, USC and Georgia before committing on July 29th of 2014. Jackson said he’s been in touch with coaches at USC and Coastal Carolina on Williams’ behalf. “They have his information and we’ll wait and see what happens,” he said. “I talked to (USC assistant) Coach Peterson and he passed it on to Robbie Liles. They all know who he is. When Ty’Son was in high school, the Gamecocks were real high on his list. That summer before he was a senior, everybody that Carolina offered kind started to say yes and Ty’Son kind of got of got left to hang out to dry. He said he was real close to going to Wisconsin but the coach who was doing his recruiting left and went to Oregon State and he wasn’t going to go that far. He’d like to have a decision before August.” Williams’ mother is in the military and now lives in Macon, GA and is going to Kansas for a year. Jackson said he’d like to stay near his mom or dad. Williams played as a freshman last season carrying the ball 19 times for 57 yards. He has a redshirt year available which he will use as a transfer leaving him three years of eligibility. Jackson said Williams checked in at 6-1, 212 pounds at the school today. As for his 2017 DE Tyreek Johnson who is a USC commitment but recently picked up an Alabama offer, Jackson said, “I talked to him today and he said ‘I’m solid, Spurs Up.”
  5. Ty’Son Williams closing in on college decision July 23, 2014 Rivals bio Scouts bio 247sports bio SUMTER — 4 star Ty’Son Williams 5'11" 200lbs is starting to see the finish line of his recruitment – but he’s not there yet. Williams coming to USC Black Magic Showcase Saturday The Crestwood High standout and top Class of 2015 instate running back has narrowed his options to three schools and has a timeframe for when the announcement will come. “I just want to have that feeling and go with it,” Williams said Wednesday as the Knights continued summer workouts. “It’s a lifetime decision. You don’t want to rush into it. I want to sit on it long enough and make sure it’s the right decision – but not sit on it too long.” He expects to decide in the next month between South Carolina, North Carolina and Georgia. Notre Dame and Wisconsin are “pretty much” off his list, he said, a decision he made because of his desire to stay close to family. Williams lives with his mom in Sumter and has a lot of relatives in Georgia. He was born in Macon, Ga., and grew up a fan of the home-state Bulldogs. “I am definitely going to stay in the Southeast,” he said. “I want to be able to see family and go home on breaks and make it easier for them to come see me too.” Williams considered an Aug. 1 ceremony that would include his teammates. That could still happen, he said. Or he could decide any day to pick up the phone, call the college and commit. No matter what, he said, he won’t stretch it beyond Crestwood’s Aug. 29 season-opening game. The 6-foot, 202-pound Williams is a four-star prospect and the No. 3 overall prospect in South Carolina for this class, according to the 247Sports Composite rating, which factors in all networks. ESPN likes him as the No. 1 overall talent in the state for 2015. Defensive line coach Deke Adams is recruiting Williams for the Gamecocks, who are expected to add one more running back to the class to go with A.J. Turner of Clifton, Va. Here’s what Williams said about his top three schools: • Georgia: “It was my home school, my dream school growing up – the tradition and growing up as a child watching them play. It is a great program. They produce a lot of good backs and send them to the league. I like that about them.” • UNC: “The campus is real nice. It’s a real good football program. They’re on the up-and-up. They were kind of top tier back in the day. They’re just working their way back up to the top.” • USC: “I like Coach Adams. It’s a good campus. Just having the chance to be able to play early. At least one of the two freshmen will have to suit up and play. It’s a good opportunity for early playing time.” Williams said he’s been to USC, UNC and Clemson this summer. He visited Georgia earlier this year but not recently. He plans to be in Columbia on Saturday for the Gamecocks’ annual Showcase Camp. While he wasn’t ready to rank his finalists, he did say that Adams is his favorite recruiter and his best relationship with a running backs coach is with UNC’s Larry Porter. “I like Coach Adams a lot,” he said. “He’s a stand-up guy. He tells you exactly how it is. He doesn’t try to sugarcoat things. Ever since he’s been recruiting me, I always feel like I can just talk to him.” Williams said his primary communication with USC is through Adams. He talks with running backs coach Everette Sands, but not as frequently as he does with UNC’s Porter or Georgia’s Bryan McClendon, he said. His official recruiters at all three schools coach other positions. Williams said he made a connection with Porter last month at UNC’s Freak Show camp, and the two have talked often ever since. “I could go to the University of South Carolina this weekend and the same thing could happen,” Williams said. “You just never know.” A good relationship with his future running backs coach is important, Williams said, especially with a decision upcoming. He expects the chance to build on his bond with Sands this weekend. “We are definitely going to talk when I go up there,” he said. “I’m going to take it all in and ask questions, enjoy my time there and talk with some of the other recruits. It’s definitely going to weigh into my decision. You want to have the healthiest relationship with your coaches.” It’s important to get the decision out of the way so he can focus on his senior season at Crestwood, he said, without the distractions that recruiting can bring. On Wednesday, he was wearing a South Carolina hat and wristband. Don’t read into that, he said. There’s North Carolina and Georgia gear at home. “I like all of them,” Williams said. “I could see myself at all of them. Every time I go on a campus, I could see myself there. I can picture myself there.” Recruiting Ty’Son Williams A look at the three main staffs recruiting Ty’Son Williams of Crestwood High in Sumter.

  6. RB Ty’son Williams cut one from list, has final visit upcoming July 8, 2014 Rivals bio Scouts bio 247sports bio 4 star RB Ty’son Williams 6'1" 202 of Crestwood said Monday night he’s down to a final four of USC, Georgia, Notre Dame and North Carolina. Wisconsin had also been on his list. He does not have a favorite among the remaining four. Williams has visited USC and plans to visit Georgia once the dead period is over. He has not visited Notre Dame or North Carolina. “After that (visit to Georgia), I’m going to shut it down and go ahead and make my decision,” Williams said. That was originally scheduled for August 1st but Williams said he wants to wait on some of his teammates before he makes his announcement so there is no definite date at this point. Williams talked with USC recruiter Deke Adams a couple of days ago. “It’s the same thing, they like my film and he was talking to me trying to get me to come down there,” Williams said. Williams is one of several running backs the Gamecocks have been recruiting and he’s aware AJ Turner could pick USC on Tuesday. But he said that won’t affect his thinking about USC as long as it doesn’t affect their feelings about him. “If they still recruit me I still my want to go there if that’s who I like,” Williams said. “It doesn’t matter who’s coming. I’m going to go down there and compete.” Link: http://sportstalksc.com/index.php/2014/07/08/strecruiting-rb-tyson-williams-cut-one-from-list-has-final-visit-upcoming/ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tTt__EgUwCk
  7. WILLIAMS BIO Name: Ty’son Williams (pronounced tie-SAHN) Position: Running back (also plays receiver and tight end) Height/weight: 6-foot, 202 pounds School: Crestwood High, Sumter Rating: Four stars and the No. 21 RB in the country, according to 247Sports’ composite index Accolade: Crestwood’s spring practice offensive playmaker SUMTER — Ty’Son Williams takes a handoff and heads upfield during the Crestwood High spring game. His gain elicits shouts of “Texas!” from his teammates. It’s a reference to his previous home state and his military family. And it’s all in good fun, Williams said. “I don’t take it as disrespect,” he said. “As long as you know who I am and what I can do.” What Williams can do is run the football. He runs it so well that more than a dozen major colleges – including South Carolina – have offered scholarships. The 6-foot, 202-pounder is considered the state’s top senior running back prospect, and ESPN likes him as the No. 1 overall talent in South Carolina for 2015. On a day in late May, Williams takes two of his carries and turns them into touchdowns of more than 50 yards. It’s a familiar sight for his Crestwood coaches and teammates. Williams ran for 1,516 yards and 16 touchdowns as a junior after compiling 1,008 yards and 17 scores as a sophomore. Explosiveness is what sets him apart as the state’s top back, Crestwood coach Roosevelt Nelson said. “He can take a regular four- or five-yard pickup and it might be a 60- or 80-yard touchdown,” Nelson said. “He catches the ball well, blocks well, a very smart kid.” May was a busy month for Williams. Recruiters from South Carolina, Clemson, Notre Dame, Wisconsin and Georgia attended Crestwood practices. Defensive line coach Deke Adams is Williams’ recruiter for the Gamecocks, and he also hears from running backs coach Everette Sands. USC is selling early playing time and a depth chart that’s not likely to include Mike Davis after this season, Williams said. “They have to have three to suit up,” said Williams, who has visited USC twice this year. “One of the two that they sign this year has to be ready to play.” He has named a top four that includes the Gamecocks, Clemson, Notre Dame and Wisconsin, in no order. With spring practice over, he plans to visit schools he hasn’t seen – particularly Notre Dame and Wisconsin. Williams is still hearing from North Carolina and Mississippi State and keeping an open mind. “It’s not necessarily locked down, my top four,” he said. “I’m still interested in all the schools. I’m looking for the best situation all around and the best fit for me.” Williams plans to narrow his options in the coming weeks and make a decision this summer. Nelson, who graduated from Crestwood and played at Clemson from 2001 to 2005, is helping Williams navigate the recruiting process. “I give him some information here and there, what to look for, things to do and not to do,” Nelson said. “You’d never know he had that many offers the way he carries himself. He’s staying humble and staying grounded.” Williams was born in Macon, Ga., and grew up a fan of the home-state Bulldogs. His mom’s job in the Army has taken the family on stints in Georgia, Kansas, Texas andSouth Carolina. His recruiting stock rose after making the move to Sumter from El Paso, Texas. Being a military kid, Williams could see himself going anywhere for college. Still, he would like to make it easy for his family to watch him play. Williams said he is enjoying the recruiting process but is trying to keep his priorities in perspective. “It’s good to have choices,” he said, “but sometimes you’re so heavy into recruiting as if you’re going to be there next year. I’ve still got another year of high school ball.”
  8. RB Ty’son Williams is holding firm with his top five with no plans to change Mayy 30, 2014 Rivals bio Scouts bio 247sports bio 4 star RB Ty’son Williams 5'11" 205lbs of Crestwood has had a top of USC, Clemson, Wisconsin, North Carolina and Notre Dame and nothing has changed with that. And Williams does not expect any changes in the future. ‘I”m just sticking with those five,” Williams said. “I want to make a decision before the season. I don’t have a favorite. They are all recruiting me hard. I’m just keeping an even keel.” None of the recruiters were in this week but last week Clemson, Notre Dame, Wisconsin and Georgia were in. Robbie Caldwell and Tony Elliott from Clemson stopped by. “They tell me they want me but we don’t talk much about schemes,” Williams said. “We’ll talk more about that if I choose that school.” USC recruiter Deke Adams was by to check on Williams the previous week and the two have also talked on the phone. Williams has no visits planned for now but will try to visit his schools this summer Link: http://sportstalksc.com/index.php/2014/05/30/williams-is-holding-firm-with-his-top-five-with-no-plans-to-change/ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tTt__EgUwCk
  9. RB Ty’Son Williams has his favorite five for now but they possibly are not his final five May 5, 2014 Rivals bio Scouts bio 247sports bio 4 star RB Ty’Son Williams 5'11" 205lbs of Crestwood recently revealed a list of five favorites consisting of Clemson, USC, Notre Dame, Wisconsin and North Carolina. But Williams said that won’t necessarily be the five he chooses from. “I can’t say those are the final five because I could have later offers,” Williams said. Clemson, USC, Notre Dame and Wisconsin have been thru the school this spring. Williams has talked with his Clemson Robbie Caldwell and his USC recruiter Deke Adams. “Coach Caldwell was telling me to keep working hard,” he said. “Coach Adams and I had a brief conversation. He just stopped by to show his face.” Williams said he keeps in regular contact with both recruiters. Williams said all are even among his five favorites right now and all are pushing hard. He wants t make his decision before the season and he probably will graduate early. Williams has a couple of items on which he’ll base his decision. “Playing time is the number one factor,” he said. “Academics also.” Williams has not taken any spring visits but plans to take some trips this summer.

  10. USC offers Ty’son Williams 02/11/14 Rivals bio 247sports bio USC Tuesday offered one of the state’s top 2015 prospects 4 star in RB Ty’son Williams 6'1" 190lbs of Crestwood. The Gamecocks join Clemson, Florida State, North Carolina, Georgia, NC State, Duke and Appalachian State on his offer list. Williams attended Clemson’s junior day earlier this month and plans to take more trips for junior days and campus visits this spring. He has not yet formed a favorites’ list. Last season he rushed for 1516 yards and 16 touchdowns. Link: http://sportstalksc.com/index.php/2014/02/11/usc-offers-williams/ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tTt__EgUwCk
  11. RB Ty’son Williams of Crestwood 02/07/14 Rivals bio RB Ty’son Williams of Crestwood (6-1 195) will be one of the state’s best in 2015. He’s coming off a season of 1516 rushing yards and 16 touchdowns. As a sophomore he rushed for 1008 yards and 17 scores. “He has great vision and feet,” said his coach Keith Crolley. “He stops on a dime and cuts well. He’s got some wiggle and he’s got great hands. He’s not the fastest guy but he’s fast enough to get away from people. Williams attended Clemson’s recent junior day and he now holds offers from the Tigers, Florida State, North Carolina, Georgia, NC State, Duke and Appalachian State. “It was a pretty good trip,” Williams said. “I’ve been talking with coach Tony Elliott for a minute and and he was telling me how it would be. I saw it coming (the offer) and when it came I was excited still. All the facilities are top notch. They were telling me I have a chance to be one of the heavier backs and they would put me in open space and allow me to make plays.” Williams said his next visit probably would be to North Carolina. He also wants to visit Georgia again. He’s been there for a football game. He’s not heard much from USC at this point and more film is being sent to them. Right now Williams has a top five of Clemson, Georgia, North Carolina, NC State and Duke. Clemson, Georgia and North Carolina are evenly matched at the top he said. Williams would like to make his decision before his senior season if he can.
