Williams Enjoyed Texas Tech Visit

Fort Worth All Saints defensive tackle Mike Williams visited Texas Tech for the Oklahoma game on Saturday. RaiderPower.com caught up with the four-star prospect for a recap of the trip. Williams, rated as the No. 9 DT of the 2016 class by Scout, currently holds offers from Kansas State, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, Ohio State, Oklahoma State, SMU, TCU, Teas Tech, Tulsa and UCLA.


The following is a Q&A via direct messages on Twitter:

RP: First off how'd it go? What was your overall takeaway from the visit?

Williams: The students and just the fan base in general had the stadium rocking they're just not good now because coach Kingsbury hasn't gotten his guys in there but in a few years that will be the place to be.

RP: Since you say that, does it seem like a place that would fit for you after visiting?

Williams: Yessir it's a nice school just gotta look more into the academics.

RP: I know you are a junior, but do know what you want to major in college yet?

Williams: I'm thinking something in medicine.

RP: Nice. I saw you said on Twitter Kingsbury has a lot of swag. How much did you interact with him and what made you say that?

Williams: I didn't get to talk to him but I saw the way he was around his players.

RP: How would you describe how he was around the players?

Williams: It was just smooth you could see he has the confidence and charisma.

RP: Yep, When we talked last you said you were looking for a community like the one you have at All Saints. Did you see that at Tech?

Williams: I wasn't able get a touch on that just yet.

RP: Did you get a chance to speak with coach Morris, Smith or any of the coaches? If so how did it go?

Williams: I was able to talk to coach Scott for a bit he just talked to my family for a little.

RP: That's cool. Do you have an idea when you might visit Tech again?

Williams: I have no idea yet but for sure gonna set up another visit.

RP: I realize you still have a lot of time and a lot of suitors, but do you have a group of leaders emerging yet? If so, who are they?

Williams: I have no leaders right now I'll start narrowing down in a few months.

RP: Anything I'm missing? Anything you'd like to add about the visit or your overall recruitment?

Williams: I just know that I'm coming back to Tech for sure, I loved the experience.

RP: Alright. Thanks for your time. BTW, I saw y'all didn't take it easy on my poor Owls. 50-20 SMH.

Williams: Hahahaha had to prove a point to SPC.
