As Devon Williams‘ recruitment unfolded, it was clear that the four-star wide receiver from Antelope Valley (Calif.) was looking for something more than just the most traditional in-state powers. He found it in spades among his four finalists of Oregon, USC, Utah and Alabama. If those four schools seem like a disparate group, that’s because they are. And in the end, only USC could provide the right setting for Williams for the next three or four seasons, even if his school band apparently had other ideas. Williams committed to the Trojans during a televised ceremony at his school. The decision didn’t come as a shock, though for some who haven’t followed his recruitment it could have. Williams’ final two visits came to USC and Oregon, considered his two primary contenders, and his decision came down on the biggest national stage, televised on ESPNU.
