Williams hopes an offer comes

The LSU staff will be searching near and far for the talent needed to sure up their offensive line in 2010. One prospect that has caught the attention of LSU early on is Daryl Williams, and the interest is more than mutual.

At six-foot-five and 266-pounds, Williams often turns heads when he walks up and down the streets of Lake Dallas. With his senior season approaching, however, Williams is hoping that the heads that will be turning will be those of college coaches.


"My recruitment is going really well, and I am picking up some more offers," he said. "So far Texas Tech, Baylor and Kansas have offered me to come and play. I feel like TCU and Missouri are pretty close to coming in as well."


One of the most highly touted prospects in the Dallas-Fort Worth area for 2010, Williams hopes to turn out a performance next season worthy of more offers, including one from the Tigers.


"I am getting a lot of interest from Oklahoma, LSU, Iowa and Oregon as well, so I hope some things can happen with those schools," he said. "I don't really follow college football, just the NFL, so I don't have any favorites heading into all of this. I am kind of open to anything, you could say."


With that thought, Williams said that suiting up in Baton Rouge would be something that he could see himself doing.


"Getting an offer from LSU would just be amazing, so I need to keep working this summer and try and make it happen," he said. "I would like to get down and check out a camp there, because I want to show the staff more of what I've got."


What piqued the offensive tackle's interest in the Tiger program?


"LSU just has it all, from the tradition to the big game atmosphere," he said. "It is the kind of place any kid would want to play. If they came after me I would be all ears. Whatever happens I am going to take an official visit there next fall, because LSU is definitely in my top five."
