UGA Football recruiting: RB recruit Stanley Williams '90% committed' to Bulldogs

Scott Cunningham

The young running back recruit gave a verbal commitment to Georgia as a freshman, but isn't ready to close his recruitment just yet.

In the summer of 2011, the Georgia Bulldogs offered high school freshman Stanley Williams a scholarship, which he accepted immediately. Now in the midst of his junior year, the 2014 running back prospect says he is 90% committed to Georgia.

At the least, the appeal of being courted by several of the nation's top programs seems to have Williams keeping his recruitment open, as he is unsure about whether or not he will truly sign with the Bulldogs in 2014. The 5'9, 190-pound running back is currently rated as a three-star prospect and the No. 16 running back of the 2014 class, according to Scout.com.

This season, Williams has attended games at Georgia, Florida, South Carolina and Clemson, with plans to see games at Alabama and Auburn. He has also had contact with LSU and Notre Dame.

So is this akin to Williams de-committing? He says, "I'm still a Dawg but I'm still looking at other places." He goes on to explain:

Even though I am committed, I still want to go around, talk to other schools and see if I fit in well there. I'm still thinking things through. A lot of schools are giving me things to think about.

Williams, who is known for his top-level speed, has rushed for over 1,000 yards this high school season despite fighting an ankle injury.
