Four-Star Safety Brian Williams Impressed with Texas

Head Coach Tom Herman and staff wasted little time hitting the ground running on the recruiting trail. One of the beneficiaries is 2019 standout safety, Brian Williams.

Standout safety Brian Williams checks in at 6-foot-1, 185-pounds from Dallas (Texas) Bishop Dunne.  The four-star 2019 prospect recently picked up an offer from the University of Texas and head coach Tom Herman.


“I am real excited about an offer from Texas Longhorns,” Brian Williams said.  “I have always lived in Texas, and I grew up watching them play, so it’s a big deal.”


Bishop Dunne high school coach informed Williams of the offer.


“I think Coach Strong has laid a great foundation and now Coach Herman and his staff will only build it and bring Texas back to full glory,” Williams said.


Williams is not sure about potential visits but rest assured he will visit Texas.  He holds offers from Arkansas, Auburn, Baylor, Colorado, LSU and Texas to name a few.


“I am a safety who make sure tackles,” Williams said.  “I have great ball skills and I have great instincts which allow me to be around the ball and make plays.” Take


Williams has a college pedigree as he is the younger brother of Arkansas running back Rawleigh Williams III. He will be a rare four-year starter in high school. He has a well-rounded skill set. He is a guy who can come downhill and blow up the run game, but he is also a tremendous cover guy. He can turn and run with receivers like a corner but has the size of safety. He is only going to get better with time, and he should end up rated as one of the top safety prospects nationally. - Greg Powers
