Texas RB Holds Nebraska Offer

Typically, when you look at a runningback from Texas coming out of high school as a high prestige institution, you're probably looking at a pretty talented kid especially when he's being offered by some of the nation's other elite. It appears that the Cornhuskers have identified another young man out of the Lone Star State that could add to their runningback ranks, but does he share the same attraction to them?

Mon Williams is put together pretty well for a young man his age.  Standing 6' 2" and weighing in at 195 pounds, if you were able to put 10-15 more pounds on him, he could become an every down back pretty quickly in Division 1-A especially with his 4.4 40 yard dash speed.  He benches 295 pounds, squats 325 pounds and power cleans 225 pounds currently.  Last year, he led his district in rushing with 1,498 yards on 252 carries and 11 touchdowns.  He also caught 13 passes out of the backfield for 150 yards and was named First-Team All-District for his efforts.

He currently claims offers from Kansas, Kansas State, Iowa, Iowa State, Florida, Utah, Mississippi State, Texas A&M, Texas, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, LSU, Baylor (where he also has a track scholarship offer), Nebraska and Tulsa along with interest from USC.  He claims no favorites and plans to camp with the Golden Hurricane at Tulsa.  He cites his strengths as his quickness, his power, his pass-catching ability and his refusal to go lightly because of the score.

Though Williams claims no favorites at this point, it appears that a Big XII power is the one showing up the most around Mon.  "I'd say Texas (is recruiting the hardest).  They send stuff every day. They stay in contact with me.  They send stuff about the school and what the players have done," said Williams.  Another Big XII school looking at Mon is the Cornhuskers and while he does have an offer from the Big Red, his knowledge about them is somewhat light.  "I like them but I've never really look into it.  They sent me mail too, but I just don't know much about them," he said.

Mon did mention that he is receiving mail from Nebraska and admittedly likes what the correspondence says.  "They send me stuff like about the coaches and players.  They talk about how the other coaches are and how they treat the players like their own sons," said Williams.  When it comes to what Mon is looking for in a program, above all, he just wants a place that feels like home.  "I just want to feel comfortable. When I go there I don't want to feel scared to go there and have to worry.  I just want to go to where I feel good and where they have a good academic program," he said.

Williams doesn't have any unofficial visits scheduled yet, but is actually rather anxious to get out of the Lone Star State in that regard.  "I want to go to Florida, I'd like to go to Nebraska because I've never been out of Texas, really," he said.  Williams also reports that Texas A&M, Florida, Miami, Oklahoma, Mississippi State, LSU and Colorado have been down to evaluate him at his school throughout the month of May.
