Of course USC isn’t going to be pleased when football officials hear about this photo of their prized defensive recruit Leonard Williams holding an AK-47. Considered one of the top defensive ends in the country, Williams made official visits to Florida, Florida Sate, USC, Auburn and Miami. Of course this was a big ‘get’ for the Lane Kiffin regime. Everyone can relax, it’s a fake gun. Maybe Leonard wants to be in action movies.
Williams, still in high school in Daytona Beach, was a hard target for a USC team coming off a bowl ban. According to a February story in the Daytona Beach News-Journal:
The deciding factor, said Williams, was as old as football itself: X’s and O’s. USC is committed to playing a 4-3 defense, employing two full-time defensive ends.
The Gators, Williams’ favorite team since childhood and his likely choice right up until Tuesday morning, seem to be vacillating between the 3-4 and 4-3.
