Williams took a visit to LA to check out both USC and UCLA before starting the process of narrowing down his decision.
That's either a sign that the Trojans are one of the teams on the chopping block, or that they're in good shape, and Williams is merely reaffirming his confidence in the program.
Williams would enter Southern Cal with the QB position well-stocked (backup QBs Jesse Scroggins and 2011 commit Max Wittek are both top 10 talents) and, with Barkley the likely No. 1 pick, well-established.
Based on how the Trojans have recruited the wide receiver position this past year, USC fans have to like their chances. Kiffin is a slick recruiter particularly for offensive talent. Even with the depth he's accrued at wide receiver, it's never wise to count the Trojans out of a race for a five-star on offense.
Whether Williams is USC's top priority is another matter. With five-star WR George Farmer an easy battle, and Mater Dei WR Victor Blackwell hoping to join his teammate, Max Wittek, you have to wonder how many scholarships Kiffin and co. want to devote to wide receiver over linebacker, defensive back, etc.
How the offense gels with its receivers, and how well the defense overcomes last year's epic collapse, should determine how adamantly the USC staff pursues Williams.
At this point, I'm guessing the Trojans will make his first cut. After that, it's still unclear.
