The interest started pouring in from the Texas Tech Red Raiders when Williams attended their camp earlier this summer. He had a great time in Lubbock and his visit shot Tech to the top of his list.
"I went to camp at Tech, TCU and SMU. Tech went really good. I got familiar with the type of defense they run and got to spend a lot of time with (Mike) Leach," Williams said. "The TCU camp was nice. I got to talk with a lot of different people. The SMU camp went the about the same way that TCU did."
Williams also received invites to camp at several other in-state schools including Texas, Baylor and Houston but wasn't able to make it. However the interest doesn't stop inside the Lone Star State with Williams.
"As far as in-state schools go, I got invites from Texas, Baylor and U of H," Williams said. "I also got invites from schools all over the nation."
One school in particular that already has the eyes on Williams is the Texas Longhorns. They have yet to show a great deal of direct interest to the Abilene linebacker, but it may be just a matter of time.
"I know that Texas' defensive coach told my coach for me to keep working hard, but the only school I've talked to is Tech," Williams said. "Texas is a good school. I have been to camps there. They have good coaches and a good program. So, I am definitely interested in them."
Williams rolled up 140 tackles in total last year on his way to earning All-District and Sophomore of the Year honors last year. It's his knack for finding the ball carrier that makes him such an interesting prospect.
"Just knowing where the ball is at," Williams replied when asked about his strengths. "I flow to the ball no matter where it's at."
