One player that has benefited from coaches shifting their focus is Allen running back Jonathan Williams, who has picked up his first offer.
"I will never forget this day...Mizzou," wrote Williams on his Facebook page. Later in the day, Scout.com reached out to the junior to confirm that he had an offer.
"I got a call from my coach saying they offered, but he said they cant talk to us this week because of signing day," said Williams on Tuesday night. "I'm going to call Coach Pinkel on Monday and he's going to officially tell me then.
"I have been pretty interested in them ever since Brad McNulty committed there."
Williams rushed for 2,078 yards last season, finding the end zone 19 times.
