2019 Mansfield (Tex.) defensive back Miles Williams was going through study hall on Thursday morning when his head coach brought him in to his office to tell him that SMU offered. That's when Williams gave defensive backs coach Jess Loepp and defensive line coach Buddy Wyatt a call to hear more about the offer.
"It was a surreal moment. I didn't know it was going to come. It was very shocking and eye opening. I've been waiting for this to happen for a while," Williams told Pony Stampede. "I'm blessed and honored. I wasn't really expecting it."
Loepp followed Williams on Twitter a few weeks back, but the offer came out of the blue. The SMU coaches made a nice impression on Williams early.
"They just said that they liked my film and watching my film. They like to offer local players and jump on them early," Williams said. "They want kids to see the home aspect of it and like kids that want to stay close to home.
"They sounded really ecstatic to offer a scholarship. It made me feel good that someone was watching my film and took notice in the hard work I've put in."
Williams doesn't know too much about SMU right now expect that it's a good academic school and says the program is on the rise, but expects to take a visit soon to find out more. http://www.scout.com/college/southern-methodist/story/1764955-2018-oklah...
"Just to get a feel for their coaching staff and how we can interact," the safety said. "How they run their defense and to learn more to become a better football player and a better person."
Right now, no other schools have shown interest and he's open to anyone who wants to take interest in him.
"Anyone who is willing to offer. I'm really open to anyone," the sophomore said. "I'm looking for a college that's trying to take me. A great experience and coaching staff to make me a better football player and better person."
The 6-foot, 165-pound defensive back said that he has good ball skills and as his frame fills out, he'll improve in other areas.
"I'm more of a prototypical defensive back. I play the ball very well," Williams said. "I need to improve my sure tackling, but as I fill out my frame, that'll come. I've good height, but I'm a little thin, but I have a few seasons left to fill out my frame."
