Williams planning trip to Nebraska

The Huskers are making a push for one of the top players in Oklahoma. Three years ago, Nebraska was able to go into Oklahoma and get a couple of players out of the Sooner State. This particular player is really growing in popularity and Nebraska is making a late push to try and pull out another player from Oklahoma.

K.J. Williams got his latest offer this past weekend. The 6-foot-5 and 235-pound defensive end/tight end from Norman (Okla.) North got offered following a camp in Stillwater.

"Yeah, I was up at the Oklahoma State camp this weekend," Williams said. "Things went real good. I got an offer at the camp, later that day."

That latest offer is pushing up a total that has quietly been growing. Williams is now holding offers from the two in-state schools plus most of the rest of the Big 12.

"I think that I have 11 or 12. They are from Oklahoma, they are a soft verbal, Nebraska, Oklahoma State, Missouri, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Tulsa, Kansas State, Iowa State, TCU and New Mexico."

One of the reasons teams have to like Williams is because of the versatility to play either side of the ball. He is a standout tight end and defensive end at Norman North.

"I could play both sides of the ball in college. It's kind of half and half right now. TCU gave me the option to play offense or defense and so did Iowa State. It's kind of split."

While Williams has the ability to play on both sides of the line, he isn't ready to decide which side is better for him in college. "I won't know that until after my senior year. I am loving both sides of the ball right now."

On defense, Williams said that his strengths are his ability to really make plays on the other side of the line of scrimmage and get after the quarterback.

"It's just my speed, my ability to get up field and my ability to get to the quarterback. I can make plays in the backfield."

As a tight end, people might see size, but Williams has the speed that you wouldn't think a man with his size possesses and he takes advantage of that.

"I am a big target, but a lot of people don't know that I have speed. I can make the cuts and I can make the moves."

Williams had a big year last year for Norman (Okla.) North on both sides of the football. "I had 66 tackles and 5 sacks on defense. On offense, I had three catches for 45 yards and one touchdown. I was honorable mention all-city and honorable mention all-district."

Williams was just getting back from Oklahoma State and he says that his parents are heading to Texas A&M in the coming weeks. Besides those two, Williams has taken an interest in seeing Nebraska, but hasn't had a chance to talk to his parents about it because the offer is so recent.

"I think that I might be going up to Nebraska. I haven't had a chance to sit down and talk to my parents about it yet."

"Nebraska just offered me yesterday. They started recruiting me kind of late, but I knew that they were looking at me and it was exciting to get that text message."

While Nebraska is entering the picture a little late in comparison to some other teams, Williams said that isn't an issue. "It doesn't hurt them. I just don't know a lot about Nebraska. I have time though so I can get there and learn about them."
