Toney Williams came to Knoxville for his official visit last weekend hoping to close the deal on his Tennessee commitment.
The 6-foot-1, 230-pound running back from Milton High School in Alpharetta, Ga., said last week that he was 90 percent committed to UT and was waiting for his official visit to be sure.
"It went real good," Williams said. "I like everything about it. I'm committed 100 percent now."
Williams said his interaction with UT's coaches stood out among everything else on his trip.
"It was just the coaches, the staff and Coach (Lane) Kiffin himself," Williams said. "It just made me feel comfortable."
He plans to enroll at UT in January.
Williams' positive report is good news for UT, which has lost eight commitments from its 2009 class, six of which have been attributed to UT's coaching change.
Kiffin, who was hired this month to replace Phillip Fulmer, won Williams over this month when he promised him a chance to play tailback in UT's new offensive system.
He is a bigger tailback than most. Already at 230 pounds, he could prove to be a similar fit in Kiffin's system as LenDale White when Kiffin was at Southern California.
Williams chose UT over Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Mississippi State, North Carolina State, Indiana, Arkansas and Rutgers.
