Williams Sold on OU

Now that the seven-on-seven season has rolled around Skyline cornerback Steve Williams is getting the chance to show his lockdown skills against some top-notch competition, proving that he is a tremendous catch for the Oklahoma Sooners.

Steve Williams, a 5-foot-9, 170-pound cornerback from Skyline High in Dallas, Texas is one of the best cornerbacks in the Southwest.

He helped lead a very talented Skyline High team to a semi-final birth and what many would consider a mild upset over Plano High, a team that featured skilled receivers like Kris Lott and Rex Burkhead.

"We played pretty good," Williams began. "We played as a team."

"I think that I played pretty good until the end. I got a little tired. That is one thing we need to work hard on. You need to be conditioned and be in great shape."

Williams made a commitment to play for the Oklahoma Sooners after strongly considering top offers from programs like Miami (FL).

As always there were plenty of college programs through Skyline High this spring trying to convince the guys to look at their schools, but Williams says that he is sold on OU.

"I am solid on that commitment," Williams informed. "That is where I want to go."

"Academically they are a top Big 12 team, and they will be number five in the nation probably. They are always a top five team in the nation."

The four-star corner also admits that the location played a huge role, and it will be a nice short trip up I-35 for his loved ones to watch him play.

"It is not to far from the house. I want to see my mom be able to come back. She comes to all of the games, so I like that a lot."

Williams was pretty excited about OU after they offered, but it was a trip for the Spring Game that made him realize that he should make a commitment.

"I went up there and saw the spring game about a month ago. It was real neat. They had a lot of stuff to show us," Williams explained. "I got to watch the Spring game and I got the chance to see if I could play on the level of Oklahoma."

Williams has the swagger that many coaches and sc outs look for in a corner prospect, and he has enough confidence in himself to believe that he can go in and push for playing time.

"Of course man," Williams said with a smile when asked if he is going to go in with the belief he can push for a starting spot. "You have to have confidence in your abilities to play. I know I can go in there and play. They are lacking depth too."

Williams plans to attend a summer camp session at Oklahoma.
