Aaron Williams Shines at UT Camp

Round Rock, Texas defensive back Aaron Williams flew under the radar early in the recruiting process until his performance at the U.S. Army Combine in San Antonio. Since then, he has become the star of Texas' 2008 class. Just ask the Longhorn coaches and commits, and they will tell you just how good Williams actually is.

Five-star cornerback Aaron Williams attended UT's summer camp on June 10th and talked about the experience.

"It went really well," Williams said. "It was fun just being with the other commits."

"We're a pretty good class. We all work hard and try to make sure everyone is staying on the right track," Williams added.

If you ask any of the other Texas commits who they were impressed with at camp, you will likely hear Williams' name come up. He talked about what that reputation means to him.

"Oh that's good," Williams said. "That tells me that I still have to work hard to maintain that."

The other commitments were not the only ones that were impressed with Williams' overall game. The Texas coaches also liked what they saw from him.

"They were really impressed," Williams said. "They were checking out my technique and strength. I tried to show all I could do, and I think they were really impressed."

While trying to impress the Texas coaches, several of the other commits caught Williams' eye throughout the camp.

"The linebacker Dravannti Johnson," Williams said. "He is really good. Emmanuel Acho and the quarterback/wide receiver Antoine Hicks also looked good."

Williams also enjoyed hanging out with several of his fellow defensive backs during the camp.

"The best part was the one-on-ones with the receivers," Williams said. "I enjoyed playing with players like D.J. Monroe and Nolan Brewster."
