The wait is over.
On Tuesday afternoon, after more than two weeks, Ty’Son Williams finally heard back from the University of South Carolina admissions office.
“I was accepted for the fall,” he told SEC Country that afternoon.
However, it’s not a done deal. Williams has yet to make up his mind if he’ll join the Gamecocks as a walk-on running back. He’ll do so “if everything goes good.”
Since Williams has been accepted by the university, he’s now permitted to speak with Will Muschamp. Because they weren’t permitted to speak before Tuesday, Williams would like to hear what the head coach has to say before he reaches a decision.
As of late Tuesday afternoon, no meeting had been scheduled. But that’s not the only item on the docket. Williams would also like to iron out a few details with the university.
In his first and only season at North Carolina, Williams rushed for 57 yards. A graduate of Crestwood High School in Sumter, S.C., he was ranked as the No. 22 running back in the class of 2015 and the No. 5 overall prospect in the state of South Carolina.
Since South Carolina and North Carolina are scheduled to play in 2019, the fifth and final year of Williams’ eligibility, he would initially join the Gamecocks as a walk-on.
Georgia State and Appalachian State are also under consideration.
