Targeting Another QB

n the Texas State zone read-spread offense, the quarterback must be an athlete who can fling the ball and hurt you with his feet. That's a perfect description of this QB target.

On the football field, chances are that if you're quarterback is successful, he'll serve as the foundation for a successful team. As a junior for Mansfield Timberview, Devin Williams led the Wolves to a 10-2 record, while racking up a total of 31 touchdowns, and over 2,600 all purpose yards from behind center.

His ability to make plays with both his feet and arms, are the reason his recruiting is on the way up, and he's picked up a Texas State offer along the way.

"Texas State offered me over spring break, when the other quarterback (Braeden Kent) committed. I always talk to Coach Bedell, and he's the coach recruiting me," said Williams.

Charleston Southern and Navy have joined the Bobcats in extending offers. SMU, Tulsa, Fresno State, and Boise State are also showing interest in the 5'10.5" 174lb Dual Threat QB.

Some might wonder if Williams transitions to QB at the next level because of his size. Texas State is no stranger to taking undersized signal callers as 2015 signee L.G. Williams (5'10" 195lbs) is in that conversation as well. Devin see's it as his position and so does the staff.

"They want me as a QB. That's what they've said the whole time and that's what they want me as. That's my goal is to be at QB at the next level," said Williams.

Devin attended Junior Day back in February and that was his first time on campus. He came away impressed.

"I liked it. All the coaches, they were real cool and kept it straight forward. I had a good time around the campus and with the players. It's definitely somewhere I would like to go," said Williams.

There is a possibility that Williams makes the drive down I-35 to San Marcos, as he was originally planning to attend Thursday's practice and get another first hand glimpse of the Bobcat program.

Last year as a junior, Devin earned District 14-5A Offensive MVP and Honorable Mention All-State. Expect for the senior to be to have a decision before his senior season starts, most likely at some point over the summer.
