Standout Four-Star DT Mike Williams Official Visit Texas Preview

The Texas Longhorns are sitting with 14 verbal commitments for the class of 2016. Texas will sign a full class when National Signing Day finally arrives the first Wednesday in February.

Head Coach Charlie Strong and the rest of the Texas Longhorns coaching staff are coming off a tremendous official visit weekend.  Texas hosted 19 official visitors; the Longhorns will be the team to beat for their fair share. Texas will bring in another group this weekend, smaller in numbers but equally as talented. Look for Texas to sign somewhere in the neighborhood of 11-13 more players for the class of 2016.

                                   

January 23rd, 2016 will be another tremendous official visit weekend for Charlie Strong and the Texas Longhorns.  What this group lacks in overall numbers they make up in overall talent.  Defensive tackle Mike Williams is scheduled for his official visit weekend January 23rd, 2016.

 

Mike Williams is a four-star defensive tackle from Fort Worth (Texas) All Saints’ Episcopal School.  The 6-foot-2, 300-pound defensive tackle is currently committed to Stanford.  Williams made his public decision on July 3rd, 2015.  The Texas staff has done a great job of staying in touch with Williams and his family.  If Williams and his family make it to Austin, this weekend keep an eye on this four-star standout moving forward.

Scout.com Take

 

Williams is a talented defensive tackle prospect with good size for an even-front 3-technique role. Strong at the point of attack. Tough customer vs. run. Shows a good get-off to frequently give him the leverage advantage. Sheds blocks with regularity and also makes plays with O-linemen hanging on him. Possesses ability to collapse pocket with bull rush. Improved technique/added moves to repertoire should make him fierce one-gap pass-rusher. G.Brooks
