After attending a camp at Texas Tech, the Red Raider coaches were so impressed that they spoke with Abilene head coach Steve Warren and told him that they will be offering Williams a full scholarship.
"College coaches can't officially offer these kids until September 1st, but they verbally indicated to me that Chris will be getting a scholarship," said Coach Warren. "He's a very explosive player and he had a great camp up there in Lubbock."
Texas Tech currently has 3 former Abilene standouts on roster in QB Taylor Potts, RB Kobey Lewis, and WR Lyle Leong. Williams is very familiar with these guys and likes the idea of potentially playing with them as a Red Raider.
"I was a freshman when those guys came through," explained Williams. "I always looked up to them. I actually played Pop Warner football with Lyle (Leong) and Kobey (Lewis). It would be fun to play with those guys again."
With the talent that he possesses, Williams will be recruited by several of the top programs around the country. What does he think about leaving West Texas and possibly playing out of state?
"Distance is not a big factor for me," said Williams. "Whatever place is the best for me in the long run, that's where I want to go. I really want to play at the next level. I'll be looking at that when deciding on a school. A school that has a good track record for putting linebackers in the NFL is something I will look at."
Although it may take time before Williams decides on a school, once he does he said he will stick with his decision.
"I don't have a specific time frame on when I would like to commit. I want to wait until I'm 100% sure first before I do though. I don't want to be one of those guys who changes his commitment every month."
Williams plays linebacker for the Abilene Eagles and is also used at times in short-yardage running situations. At the collegiate level, he is projected to play inside linebacker by most scouts.
