Williams Impressed With Cowboy Victory

Central Arkansas Christian tight end/defensive end D.J. Williams (6-5, 247, 4.8) did everything in his power to help CAC try to defeat rival Pulaski Academy on Friday night. Pulaski prevailed 36-34 by holding off a late two-point conversion by CAC. Williams made several big catches in the ballgame and on defense was a force. He is very deserving of being one of the top prospects in the state.

Arkansas and Oklahoma State coaches were all on hand and visible in the end zone watching the action as Danny Nutt of Arkansas and Doug Meacham and head coach Mike Gundy of Oklahoma State eyeballed the contest.

"It was a tough game," said Williams. "We still intend on contending for state and next week we have Little Rock Christian."

Williams had a chance to watch Oklahoma State in action Saturday after taking in Arkansas' season opening loss to USC the weekend before. We asked him what he thought of the game on Saturday.

"I went and I really liked it," Williams said of the game at War Memorial Stadium. "There were a lot of OSU fans there in orange, more than I thought there would be. They beat them (Arkansas State) pretty good."

So, the questions is where is Williams' with his recruiting? He had said he wanted to see his schools early in the season and how they used the tight end.

"It's down to just those two schools, Oklahoma State and Arkansas," said Williams. "I want to finish out my season and then take official visits to both schools and decide from there."

Williams will still be a very tough prospect for Oklahoma State because of the heavy influence he will get from those around him in Arkansas, but to get a visit is a more than a fair shot. In the meantime, Williams is just looking to play ball and win games.
