Plenty of Interest in Williams

Scout.com caught up with Pearland offensive lineman Willie Williams. Interest in this trench warrior is picking up and coaches have made their way to check in on him. Could an offer be coming soon?

Pearland (Tex.) offensive lineman Willie Williams has not made many trips this off season. But several programs have made their way to see him. Still seeking his first offer, Williams has been a player who a many of coaches have kept an eye on.

"I have no offers yet Texas A&M (assistant coach B.J. Anderson), Oklahoma (assistant coach Tim Kish) and Texas (assistant coach Joe Wickline) are very interested in me. Coach Kish visited me already and coach Wickline has seen me twice, once while at Oklahoma and now at Texas," Williams said. 


So it is only a matter of time before the 6-foot-3, 265-pound Williams hauls in No. 1. To date, he has already traveled to Oklahoma and UTSA for visits and will likely make a few more before the end of off season. 

This past season, Williams was a key piece to an offensive line to help the Pearland team gain over 340 yards a game and was a state runner up in the largest classification in Texas high school football. 

Williams said that he is being recruited mostly at the center position, with a possibly of making his way to the other side of the ball as a defensive tackle. 

"Most likely I'll play center, or I would more to defense as a tackle. The coaches like how I give effort no matter who is lined up across from me," Williams said. 

Williams was named to the All-State team this past season.
