TCU's Dominance Impresses Williams
Ft. Worth (TX) All Saints 2016 defensive tackle Mike Williams is one of the most coveted players in the country; regardless of classification. Several teams are hot on the trail for the nation’s No.9 defensive tackle prospect. At the moment, the 6-foot-3, 270-pound holds offers from TCU, Kansas State, Michigan, Ole Miss, Ohio State ,Nebraska, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech and most recently Texas. Williams said the offer from Texas was an eye opener. “It’s big time, the love I got from Texas fans was crazy,” he said. “Texas has always been a big time school to me because of the power of the brand and Coach Strong and Coach Rumph are highly prestigious in my eyes so I loved getting that offer.” With the close of the 2015 recruiting class less than a month away, several programs have already started making plans for junior days. At the moment Williams has just one junior day set up. “As of now I have nothing official but I’m pretty sure I will be at Texas Junior Day,” Williams said. TCU was one of Williams’ first offers and he continues to have a good relationship with the coaching staff. Williams was another key prospect that was impressed by TCU’s dominance over Ole Miss in the Peach Bowl. “I talk to Coach P every so often to see how they’re doing,” he said. “They finished it big time against Ole Miss; they dominated like crazy. I was loving it.” The Frogs held Ole Miss to just 129 total yards, only 9 of those coming from the Rebels’ rushing attack. Williams admits the dominant performance made an even bigger impression. “Yes it did; it was straight dominance,” Williams said of TCU’s effort. Williams says another trip to Baylor could happen soon and he’s beginning to narrow his list of schools. For now, it’s a Big 12 heavy list of top schools but the big defender admits the list could always change. “I’m heavily considering TCU, Texas, Oklahoma State, Baylor, Ohio State and Texas Tech,” he said. “But, the list is kind of fluid.”
