Can I commit to William and Mary and then transfer to Williams College?

If I get offered a full athletic scholarship to William and Mary, and the coach at Williams College really wants me on their team but can't offer me any scholarships, which college should I go to? Could I commit to William and Mary and then transfer to Williams College?

If you need funding for college I would go to the full ride at William & Mary which is one of the best public liberal arts colleges in America.

My question to you is what assurance do you have to get any athletic scholarship money when you transfer to Williams? If they have no budget now, why would they have funds in a year from now? Am I missing something in your question? Did the Williams coach tell you if you transfer you'll get a full ride at Williams or something?
