Big Year for Williams

Scout spoke with offensive tackle Connor Williams from Coppell and it is definitely fair to say that he is tight lipped about the recruiting process at this point in time...

Connor Williams, a 6-foot-5, 285-pound offensive lineman from Coppell (Texas) High is playing offensive line -- the position he is recruited at mostly -- after playing tight end in 2013.

Last season after the first game, Scout spoke with Williams and at that time he did not yet have any offers and colleges were not really turning up the heat on his recruitment.

What a difference the year make, as now he is one of the most highly sought after recruits in the Dallas area with offers from schools like Arkansas, Georgia, Michigan, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Texas Tech, and UCLA amongst his top suitors.

"It has been a blessing and it has been a dream and it I have just been taking my time with the recruiting process and everything," Williams said.
"It is not much different now. I have been practicing my pass blocking and I have been practicing my run blocking. I am up to 285 now."

One school that Williams mentioned last year when first interviewed is Stanford, where 2013 teammate Solomon Thomas signed in February.

But they are the only school on his list without a check mark in the offered box on Scout.com.

'They have not offered yet," Williams said. "They are the only school I am considering which has not offered."

This summer Williams toured schools such as Georgia, UCLA, Oregon, Stanford, Oklahoma, Texas and Ohio State.

But when it comes to narrowing his list or talking favorites it seems that at this point in time he is playing things close to the vest.

"It was pretty great I visited nine schools," Williams said of his summer touring before going on to what is happening now.

"I have been observing and I have been taking the process slowly and seeing what is best for me."

"I have not set up any officials yet. I am still going to wait to see how people play and see how it goes."

When it comes to decision time, Williams does not have a date in mind.

"I think when I know I will know." Williams finished.
