Will walk on at Memphis
After several weeks of soul searching, Wilson Central's all-state punter Adam Williams has changed his mind about walking on at Tennessee.
The 6-5, 210-pound Williams has decided to enroll at the University of Memphis this fall as a preferred walk on.
Williams made his decision public via his Twitter account over the weekend.
"I'd like to thank the University of Tennessee for the time and opportunity," Williams Tweeted, "but after praying about this for a long time and long talks with my family and mentors I've decided to decommit from the University of Tennessee and commit to the University of Memphis. #GoTigers."
Williams was named Wilson County's Special Teams Co-MVP by The Wilson Post in early January and was was also a finalist for Tennessee Titans Mr. Football.
He was named Region 4, 6A's Co-Special Teams Player of the Year and was named to the Tennessee Sports Writers Class 6A All-State team as a punter.
As a senior, Williams was good on 16-of-18 on field goal attempts, with a long kick of 55 yards, and averaged 49 yards per punt for the Wildcats.
He turned down scholarship offers from Austin Peay, South Alabama, Ball State, Chattanooga and The Citadel.
Williams is expected to concentrate on punting and kickoffs as a preferred walk on for the Tigers.
