Things appear to have officially become very interesting with the recruitment of Bryson Allen-Williams (BAW). BAW spent the weekend on an official visit to Alabama this weekend and it appears his eyes were opened to a world outside of Columbia, South Carolina.
The 6'1 225 pound ILB/OLB has seen his recruitment go crazy after he dominated the entire week at the Army All-American game. He showed his range, speed, physicality and outstanding tackling and that led to many teams taking notice, most importantly Alabama and Georgia.
For quite a while he has been considered a Gamecocks “lock” but it is obvious that Nick Saban and Kirby Smart gave him something to think about. He posted the following two tweet on Sunday evening: (1) “Deep Thought” and (2) “BAMA did give me a lot to think about but I am till solid to SOUTHCAROLINA.
As of right now I believe he is telling the truth that he is still solid to South Carolina. However, this visit to Alabama at least shows that his eyes and ears are open. Regardless of what you may hear from some sources BAW is taking these trips because he wants to be 100% certain that South Carolina is the place for him.
Next up for BAW is an in-home visit from Mark Richt and UGA on Tuesday night. Richt will be spending time with BAW but perhaps even more importantly, BAW's mother. She appears to be a big time player in his recruitment. Also, this will be an opportunity for Richt to get the ball rolling and some momentum heading into BAW's official visit to Athens this weekend where Jeremy Pruitt will undoubtedly be spending a lot of time with BAW and Lorenzo Carter. It is no secret that those two are probably Pruitt's highest priorities to land at Georgia.
If you had to ask me as or right now what the odd's are with BAW flipping from South Carolina to Alabama or Georgia I couldn't tell you. But you can bet UGA is going to make a hard push just like Alabama did this weekend.
