TCU Among The Programs After Williams

Dallas First Baptist Academy receiver Camron Williams will attend a TCU camp later this month with hopes of garnering an offer.

Prior to his appearance at the Nike Football Training Camp in April, Camron Williams wasn't a known name on the recruiting circuit.

That quickly changed following his impressive performance at the prestigious camp.

At 6-foot-3, 210-pounds, Williams quickly turned heads just from his athletic appearance. It was after many spectators saw his route running ability and athleticism when it was determined that Williams' stock was definitely on the rise.

The 2016 prospect spent his sophomore season at Dallas Woodrow Wilson but has since transferred to First Baptist Academy in Dallas. Regarded as a four-star prospect at receiver and No. 217 overall player in the initial Top 300 2016 class rankings, Williams has a trio of Big 12 programs showing him heavy interest.

"I'm hearing from TCU, Baylor and Oklahoma," he said. "They've talked about offering me for receiver."

In fact, Williams reports that the Sooners extended an offer to him following a summer camp he attended last month. Williams says the offer caught him by surprise.

"I was excited when I heard about it," he said. "It was a dream come true because I've been working so hard in the off-season."

Williams hopes to add his second offer later this month when he attends TCU's skills camp on July 18th.

"I'll be at the TCU camp on July 18th, they want to see how I will do," he said. "I did an Oregon State camp, Oklahoma and Baylor," he said.

For now, Williams doesn't know much about TCU's programs but likes the fact that they're close to home.

"I really don't know much but I know it's a local school," he said of TCU. "That's kind of what I'm looking for; a local school that's in Texas. It's pretty cool to know that they're looking at me."

With one offer already on the table, Williams admits he's been caught by surprise with the early attention he's received so far.

"No, it all came so fast," Williams said. "I thought it was going to take some time but it has all came so fast."

With plenty of time to evaluate all of his options, Williams isn't close to making a decision. He knows his recruitment is just getting started.

"I know I'm going to get more offers so I just want to see who all wants me and then I'm going to sit down with my family and discuss it and find the best place I need to go," he said.

What is he looking for in a program?

"The biggest thing is education."
