2003 Spotlight: Paul Williams

Tyler Lee linebacker <b>Paul Williams</b> might be the biggest <b>"diamond in the rough"</b> in Texas next season.<p> <br>

The 6-foot-4, 205-pound standout, who owns 4.5 speed, had great junior year last season, but his high school team will be loaded again this coming season and he could get overshadowed by his fellow teammates.

Last season, Williams recorded 57 solo tackles, 41 assists, three sacks and recovered four fumbles.

On a team that boasts defensive end Justin Warren, quarterback Matt Flynn and offensive tackle John Mahaffey, it appears that this powerful Tyler Lee team is loaded with four national recruits.

This would probably be the most national recruits of any team in Texas, except for possibly Denton Ryan, which won the 4A state championship last season.

On film, I watched the annual grudge match between Tyler Lee and crosstown rival Tyler John Tyler and I have got to tell you...these four Tyler Lee players are sensational, aggressive and dominating.

Williams is an unbelievable physical specimen, who literally lives in the weight room. He bench presses 350 pounds and boasts a 32-inch vertical jump.

With Marvin Byrdsong, Fletcher Session and Paggitt McGee in District 12-5A last year, it was a tough league for linebackers to make the All-District team.

Byrdsong and Session made All-District first-team, while McGee and Williams made second-team. Byrdsong recently signed with Mississippi State; Session inked with Tech; and McGee signed with Oklahoma State.

Williams has expressed interest in Texas, LSU, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, UCLA and Baylor.
