Reggie Williams "loved" his recent unofficial visit to North Texas, giving the Mean Green a legitimate shot. He is now trying to figure out when he can get out to see Colorado and Arkansas. The 5-foot-11, 180-pound safety expects to take both visits either later this spring or in the summer.
"They like how I play and that I am a big hitter," Williams said of Colorado. "And I like how they are on the rise and close to being great. They turned their program around because they weren't that good. But now they are all becoming a family and working together to be great. That is why they came up with 'The Rise.' When they came up with that, that caught my attention."
Williams is anxious to visit Arkansas because he originally from The Natural State. He moved to Texas when he was seven years old.
"Most of my family still lives in Arkansas," he said. "I want to go down there to see if I like it [in Fayetteville]. It would be cool to play in the state I was born in."
Utah, Purdue, Tulsa and Navy are among the other colleges that have offered Williams a scholarship.
A first-team all-district selection as both a sophomore and junior, Williams considers his work ethic and ability to deliver punishing hits as his best attributes as a football player.
