Four-star corner Chase Williams announced his decommitment from Nebraska's 2018 recruiting class in a tweet on Wednesday night.
"First off, I would like to thank the entire Nebraska coaching staff for believing in my athletic ability and traits as a growing man," Williams wrote in the tweet. "Coach (Mike) Riley, Coach Donte (Williams), and Coach Dub (Keith Williams) have trusted me in my game as I have trusted them in their coaching. They are people that have helped me grow in my life as a football player as well as a man."
Williams eventually signed with USC.

Williams received an offer from the Huskers on April 1, 2017. He announced his commitment on April 23.
Williams didn't wait long to get his first look at Nebraska. He attended the Huskers' spring game on April 15, spending time with Husker commits from California like Brendan Radley-Hiles and Manuel Allen. Afterward, Williams spoke highly of the visit in an interview with Husker Online.
Williams is an athlete that could play either side of the ball, but the Huskers appear interested in him as a corner with Donte Williams his lead recruiter.
Williams had 1,007 yards receiving and 19 touchdowns in 13 games as a junior in 2016. He also had 37 tackles with an interception and 3 passes defended.
Williams posted a SPARQ score of 90.45 at The Opening Regional in Los Angeles in March 2017. That included a 4.76-second 40-yard dash, 4.27-second 20-yard shuttle, 36-foot kneeling powerball toss and 32.0-inch vertical jump.
These are the players who built Nebraska football.
