4-star wide receiver talks list

2016 Dallas First Baptist wide receiver Camron Williams talked with Billy about keeping SMU in his top seven.

2016 Dallas First Baptist wide receiver Camron Williams has been weighing his options and after talking with his family, cut his list to seven schools. The Scout 4-star wide receiver kept SMU, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Kansas, Kansas State and TCU in the mix for his signature.

SMU's potential under new head coach Chad Morris is a big reason for them making his list.

"I feel like SMU is on the up rise and things are looking up. I feel like they have a lot of good about the program and I felt comfortable putting them on my list," Williams said.

Part of Williams' reasoning for keeping SMU on his list is his relationship with SMU receivers coach Justin Stepp.

"I talk with him every week. We first started talking a couple weeks after the season and he's telling me more and more about the school," the 6-3, 210-pound receiver said. "The offense is changing more and more with coach Morris taking over and I'm just psyched to see where it goes."

Williams took Pony Stampede through each of the schools and what he thought about all of his choices.

On Texas Tech: "It's a pass-first offense and I'm a receiver so I want to get the ball. It's a great spot for me."

On Oklahoma: "They're also a dark horse like SMU. A lot of good talent coming in next year."

On Kansas: "It's the relationship between me and the coaches. I talked to the head coach for a little while and I feel comfortable with the direction they're going in."

On Oklahoma State: "I like their offense."

On Kansas State: "I haven't really had much contact with Kansas State, but it's a good offer to have."

On TCU: "TCU is always been a good college that I've wanted to go to. They kind of tripped me up a little bit when they talked about wanting me to be at outside linebacker, but they finally made the decision to let me try receiver."

Staying at receiver is something that's No. 1 on his list of priorities.

"It's really important. Everyone wants me to play receiver now except Baylor," Williams said.

As far as Williams' decision, he plans on taking five official visits and two unofficials (SMU and TCU), to get a feel for the experience he'd have at each school.

Kansas and Oklahoma State are two of the seven that Williams needs to find out more about before he'd consider committing there although he says everyone contacts him about the same amount.

Williams hasn't set any dates yet, but plans to make that a priority soon before planning to decide after his senior season.
