DETROIT - New Orleans Perry Walker (LA) offensive lineman Alex Williams has experienced a lot of things in his young life and he got to experience another on his visit to East Lansing, MI., this weekend.

"It was like, I saw some snow! When I first when outside it was raining, then when I went back it was snowing out there. I've never seen (anything like) that."

Asked how he felt about the wintry weather when temperatures back home in his native Louisiana where hovering near 80 degrees, Williams answer might surprise you.

"Wow, I liked it, it was alright, it was fun up there," he said.

When it came down to how he felt about Michigan State, their football program and their coaching staff, Williams was enthusiastic.

"They're in my top three right now, I'm not even going to lie to you, they're in my top three."

Sounds like MSU made an impression and moved up in the big 6-foot-7, 280-pound lineman? "Oh yeah!, he said"

But when asked if he had made a verbal commitment Williams indicated he was going to take one more visit and then he would announce his decision in a couple of weeks.

"I think I'm going to wait until Signing Day to make my decision," he said and indicated he had cut his list of teams down to just three including Michigan State, Oklahoma and Florida State.

Williams also indicated that while he knows their are differences between the Big 12, ACC and the Big Ten, he has his sights set on what life after football will be like.

"What I'm thinking about right now is who has the academics that I like? Who does the best with the subjects I want to study? It's not about my (only) trying to win at football, it's about me trying to get an education. Now (don't get me wrong) I'm going to 'ball out', but what happens after that happens."

He has visited only Oklahoma so far and rates them and Michigan State about equal. He has a visit scheduled for Tallahasse, FL with the Seminoles, this weekend.

Williams says the recruiting experience has been somewhat difficult to handle, but he is greatful to be in a position where his athletic talent can pay off in an education and a possible future as a professional ballplayer.

He hasn't made up his mind where he will make his collegiate decision, either at home or at Perry Walker high school, but says he'll be sure to let GSN know so that we can keep our readers up to date on the decision of this very likeable young man who could be a Spartan in the near future.
