Williams: U-M 'Would be a dream offer'

Houston (Texas) C E King junior RB Trayveon Williams talks Michigan interest and more.

Houston (Texas) C E King junior RB Trayveon Williams doesn’t have a Michigan – yet – but that hasn’t stopped the four-star standout form expressing his interest in the Wolverines.

“I have always been interested in Michigan,” Williams said. “I had a cousin that went up there and played. I talked to the recruiting coordinator [Chris Patridge]. He had watched my film and he said that he loved it. He said I should be expecting an offer. He said he was going to give the film to the offensive coordinator and offensive guys so they can do an evaluation.”

And if the Wolverines were to offer?

“It would mean a lot,” Williams said. “That would be one of my top schools of interest. I always wanted to be a Wolverines when I was younger. It would be a dream offer. It’s one of the schools I want to get an offer from.”

Whenever the offer comes, Williams says he next wants an opportunity to talk with Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh.

“I would want that [conversation] to go good,” Williams said. “Because he came from the NFL. So he knows the situation. He knows the deal and everything. So yeah, that would be something I would want to talk to him about.”

Currently, Williams is rated the No. 293rd player in the Scout 300, and No. 25 overall rated RB. He holds notable offers from Texas A&M, TCU, Oklahoma State and Arizona State. He has or plans on visiting Texas A&M, Oklahoma, TCU and Texas in the near future. And while Michigan isn’t local, he says a planned trip to U-M is a distinct possibility.

“I would like to visit,” Williams said. “I would like to look more into the campus. See how the coaches and players are. See if that stand out.

“I am looking for some place I could feel home. because that’s where I am going to be the next three to four years. I want to be somewhere, where I can feel comfortable. Somewhere that’s a fit for me.”
