As reported by Rivals.com Notre Dame affiliate Irish Illustrated on the site’s message boards and a handful of other outlets, four star junior Bethlehem (Ga.) George Walton Academy running back Stanley Williams, a Georgia native who has committed to Georgia but is still visiting other schools, spoke about taking a visit to South Bend. That makes sense, since Williams was scheduled to visit Notre Dame on Saturday.
There was just one catch: He never made it to South Bend at all. Instead, Williams just gave an interview with Blue and Gold Illustrated as if he did.
“The visit went great,” Williams told the site. “It was great to experience something new and different, and we had a great time at the game. I had been looking forward to it for a while, and it was great to just get out there and see a new place. I plan on getting up there a couple more times in the future.
“Before I took the visit I was very interested in them since they were coming by my school and showing interest in me. After taking the visit there, they are definitely high up there on my list and a factor in my recruitment. They’re definitely an option for me to go to. I’m just looking forward to continuing building our relationship.”
What in the hell is going on at Notre Dame man? I can only assume that Notre Dame will not be requiring the services of Williams anytime soon but what the hell do we know? Apparently Williams owned up to his farce very quickly with a “No Sir” when asked if he had actually visited the campus.
Clearly this has got nothing on the T’eo story but it’s just peculiar that’s Notre Dame and “catfishing” to some degree again.
