Georgia running back recruit Stanley Williams (Monroe, Ga./Georgia Walton Academy) said a recent report in which he said he had visited Notre Dame last weekend was "a big misunderstanding" and that he did not visit the South Bend, Ind., campus.

Blue and Gold Illustrated quoted Wiliams as saying he was at Notre Dame on Saturday, and "the visit went great."

"It was great to experience something new and different, and we had a great time at the game," Williams said, according to the website. "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."

The article also said tight ends coach Scott Booker told him to expect an offer from the Irish soon.

Williams is now disputing he made the comments, after it became clear that he did not visit Notre Dame.

"It was just a big misunderstanding," Williams said. "I just don't want people to think I have a bad reputation of lying or saying where I am going and things like that. But I told them I wasn't going to be able to make it, because I had a basketball game. When they texted me and asked if I was going, I said I was supposed to go, but some other things came up. We had a game on Saturday, and I wasn't able to make it."
