Inside Texas: How often are you hearing from Texas?

Inside Texas: What do the Texas coaches tell you?

Inside Texas: What schools have offered you a scholarship?

Williams: A whole lot. Baylor, LSU, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, Texas A&M.

Inside Texas: What are your top five schools?

Inside Texas: How interested are you in Texas?

Williams: It’s like as the process goes on my interest in them should get better, but I’m still looking really.

Inside Texas: Is Texas your leader?

Williams: Somewhat.

Inside Texas: So would you consider Texas to be your top school right now?

Williams: No, Florida is, followed by Oklahoma and then Texas and then LSU.

Inside Texas: Why is Texas third on your list at this point?

Williams: Because really, they’ve already got like three running backs committed. I’m not worried about them, because I know I can compete with them, but it becomes a numbers thing at some point.

Inside Texas: Does Texas still have a legitimate chance of signing you?

Williams: Yes sir.

Inside Texas: What are you looking for in a school ultimately?

Williams: A lot of stuff. I just want to be comfortable really. I don’t just want to go to a school because someone told me to. I want to go to a school because I want to go there.

Inside Texas: What Texas coach do you talk to the most?

Williams: Coach Kennedy.

Inside Texas: What do the two of you talk about?

Williams: He really wants me to come down and stuff.

Inside Texas: Are you going to camp at Texas this summer?

Williams: I don’t know really, because I’m doing summer track.

Inside Texas: Will Texas get one of your official visits this fall?

Williams: Yes sir.

Inside Texas: What other schools do you plan to visit officially?

Williams: I don’t even know. I haven’t decided.

Inside Texas: What is your qualifying status?

Williams: I’ve got a 2.7 GPA. I’m taking chemistry this summer, that way I can get it up to almost a 3.0 GPA.

Inside Texas: Have you taken the ACT or SAT yet?

Williams: Yeah, I took the SAT a couple of weeks ago. My scores should be coming back this week.
