Huskers after Texas OT

Nebraska has already landed half of their projected offensive line class for 2010. Nebraska has commitments from Andrew Rodriguez and Mike Moudy, which both seem to be very firm, but it seems that Nebraska is still looking for another tackle and then maybe a center/guard combination. Daryl Williams may be one of Nebraska's top remaining tackle prospects.

At 6-foot-5 and 255-pounds, Daryl Williams is full of possibility at the offensive tackle position. At Lake Dallas (Texas) the spring is over and it couldn't have gone any better.

"Our spring is over," Williams said. "We wanted to become a better team. We have a lot of new players that will be starting and some freshman that could play on varsity.

"We are trying to get everyone involved and really show them the ropes. I really wanted to get stronger and work on my stance because I am playing in a two-point."

Williams is a little undersized when it comes to comparing him to college offensive tackles, but he has that longer, quicker frame that college teams are looking for in high school.

"I think my quickness and how quick I am. I can do both, I can run and pass block. I didn't give up a sack last year, but I also like to pull and hit linebackers on run plays."

A lot of teams have already stepped up and offered Williams. He has already done some promoting of teams in his mind based on what he knows and what he has heard about the schools recruiting him.

"I have 16 offers. Some of them are TCU, Kansas, Missouri, Auburn, Nebraska and Mississippi State. I would say that those are my favorites. I was looking at academics, good coaches and their interest in me."

Williams didn't get a chance to get out for any trips this spring, but he is looking into the possibility of heading north to work out with a team that might end up offering.

"I didn't take any trips this spring. I am supposed to go to the Oklahoma camp, because the coach wants to work with me, and they might offer me."

Another team from "up north" that is giving chase to Williams is Nebraska. Williams knows the high points about Nebraska and said that the recruiting coach has given a good angle to him.

"I like Nebraska. They have the best graduation rate in the Big 12 right now. It's big to go to a school for more than football. I need to get my degree.

"Coach John Papuchis is recruiting me from Nebraska. I spoke to him yesterday and he said that he wants what is best for me. He told me that he wants the best decision for me."
