Williams might take an official

For some, the season and recruiting go hand in hand. There is enough time to get away on the weekend for an official visit. For others, there is a need to wait for the season to end all together before even thinking about recruiting. For Chris Williams, it's a combination of both. The standout linebacker has one open date and might take an official that weekend.

Chris Williams, a standout defensive player from Abilene (Texas), might only take one official visit during the season according to head coach Steve Warren. That one date is the middle of next month.

"There is one open date in a couple of months," Coach Warren said. "Chris wants to just think about the season right now, but that weekend is a possibility.

"There is nothing set up with any school at this time when it comes to that weekend. He just didn't want to jack with it during the season."

Understandably so because Abilene was a state semi-finalist last year with a 13-2 record including beating Southlake (Texas) Carroll. Abilene is 4-0 so far this year.

Williams, according to Coach Warren, is one of the biggest reasons for the success at Abilene. "Those types of players don't come around everyday," Coach Warren said.

"I know that Chris is being recruited to play anywhere from safety to linebacker, but I think that he is a MIKE in either a 4-3 or a middle linebacker in a 3-4.

"He just has such great instincts. He is just a real instinctive player and he brings a defensive mentality to the field whether it's practice or a game."
