After a junior season, where he rushed for over 2000 yards on 250 carries, Allen's Jonathan Williams had some good news for Scout.com on Saturday night.

When reaching out to Williams to find out if the junior would be making the Army Combine in San Antonio this Friday, Williams informed us he didn't need to go.

"Tom Lemming already invited me to play in the game for next year today when I met with him," said Williams. "I really didn't know what to expect going into it, but I told him who I was and then he introduced me to Curtis Riser. He told us we were gonna be pre-season All-Americans and he talked to us about the national recruiting scene."

Williams currently doesn't have any offers, but is gaining interest from Iowa, Missouri, Houston, Iowa State, SMU, Rice, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State.

"It's real exciting for me," said Williams. "After last year breaking my ankle I felt like my recruiting was a bit slow. Now it finally feels like I'm getting noticed."

Williams led the 5Ac Dallas-Fort Worth area in rushing yards and found the end zone 19 times. His 8.38 yards per carry was one of the best in the state of Texas.

"He is one of the best in the state, but word will get out pretty quick," said Allen head coach Tom Westerberg. "He's a strong kid. He's about 6-foot-1, 195 pound. People don't think of him that big, but he is. He is just a solid running back. He will probably be the best one that comes though here."

Allen finished the year 10-2 overall and lost in the state quarter-finals to Euless Trinity. Williams rushed for 68 yards on 16 carries.
