Charles "Chucky" Williams has flipped his commitment from Ole Miss to Louisville, according to his football coach at Champagnat Catholic, Michael Tunsil. Williams' decision comes after visiting Louisville this past weekend.

Williams had been committed to Ole Miss since July 26 of this year.

The 6'2", 180-pound recruit is considered the 31st best athlete by Rivals.com and the 54th best safety in the 2013 class by Scout.com. He had offers from several Division I schools including West Virginia, Nebraska, South Carolina, Clemson and Texas Tech.

This past season he played wide receiver, safety and quarterback in the Wildcat formation for Champagnat Catholic High School in Miami, Florida. He had 1,000 yards rushing, eight all-purpose touchdowns, 49 tackles and four interceptions. He also returned kickoffs and punts.

Williams is the second Ole Miss commit to flip to Louisville. Defensive end Finesse Middleton changed from the Rebels to the Cardinals in December.

Louisville now has 13 commits for the 2013 class, but things have changed several times for the Cardinals and have the potential to change before National Signing Day on Feb. 6.

Louisville has a lot of talent returning and with more young talent coming, the Cardinals have a big chance to win the Big East again and go to a major bowl.
