That's a commitment that's certainly not worth the paper it's not actually written on. He verbals on his first offer two years before he's allowed to sign?

You're right in that there's no guarantee it will hold up once everyone in the world starts recruiting him...

He is the son of Clemson running back Ronald Williams, 1990 ACC Rookie of the Year. It'll probably hold up.
