Williams Enjoys OU Official

Steve Williams made a commitment to Oklahoma back in the Spring and this Saturday he was on campus for his official visit for a closer look at the program. He got to enjoy the game day atmosphere and learn more about what it is like to be a Sooner.

Steve Williams, a 5-foot-9, 165-pound cornerback from Skyline High in Dallas, Texas had a good time on his official visit to Oklahoma.

"It was pretty cool," Williams began. "It was pretty fun. It was pretty tight. I went to the game. I hung out with the fellas. I saw how they do it on game day. That was pretty intense."

Williams had a good time watching the game, but his interest was piqued right off of the bat when Dominique Franks jumped in to the passing lane and intercepted a Nebraska pass and returned it for a touchdown.

"I could see myself doing it," Williams said as he recalled the play. "I could definitely see myself making plays like that."

"I will hopefully play field corner. Dominique (Franks) played there and I can just see myself doing what he did."

The four-star cornerback also spent a lot of time with the OU coaching staff, but he was most impressed with the type of prestige that OU head coach Bob Stoops brings to the table at OU.

"Most of the time I spent my time with Coach (Chris) Wilson and Coach (Bobby Jack) Wright, but I got to talk to Bob Stoops a couple of times. It was pretty cool."

"He showed me his ‘jewelry box' and that was good enough right there. He had all of those championship rings and all of the championship watches and stuff like that. If I want to win then Oklahoma is the place."

OU has already offered two Skyline High players (WR Mike Davis and LB/S Corey Nelson) for the 2010 class, and Williams is trying to help guide them through the process much like 2008 Minnesota signee Keanon Cooper did for him.

"I tell them to make the best choice and stuff like that," Williams admitted. "They ask me questions about all of the schools and stuff like that. I tell them to just pick the best school for them and how they will fit in."

There was some worry that Williams may be waivering because he took an official visit to California back in October, but he says that he is now content to be done with the whole recruiting process and will be signing with OU in February.

"I am done," Williams said firmly when asked if there was going to be anymore looking around.
