OL Kyle Williams Update

Texas' top offensive lineman prospect <b>Kyle Williams</b> is enjoying a terrific season so far. The 6-6 270-pounder has been a key in his team's great start. "Last Friday we lost our first game, in triple overtime. Other than that our season has been very good," Williams told Dawgman.com.

"We lead the league in total offense and we're 6-1. I'm really happy with the way I'm playing right now."

Williams is getting recruiting attention from across the Big XII, and two schools in particular in the Pac-10. He has made great strides over his junior season and recruiting coordinators have taken notice.

"I'm a lot bigger than I was last year. My pass protection has gotten a lot better since last year and I have a lot more knockdowns than last year," said Williams.

Despite being in Big XII country, Williams has currently narrowed his choices to two schools, both in the Pac-10.

"It's between USC and Washington. There isn't really much more to say right now. I'm going to wait until after the season to take my visits. I haven't scheduled them yet," said Williams.

Although the Trojans and Huskies are his definite focus right now, it's not stopping other schools from calling the Williams household. "I just basically tell the other schools that I'm looking more at the west coast and I thank them for giving me the opportunity. They can be difficult phone calls to take. At some of these schools, where you know the coaches or you visited them over the summer, it's tough to tell them flat out that you are not interested in their school," said Williams of the sometimes-brutal reality of recruiting.

Here is what he has to say about USC – "I really like the coaching staff. They are really neat. Coach Carroll, I like him, and it's a great academic school. There is a lot of tradition there."

Here is what he has to say about UW – "I really like Coach Neuheisel and Coach Myers. I went there for camp and had the chance to see them coach and I was impressed. I liked the school and campus a lot. Coach Neuheisel is really easy to talk to."

We'll check back with Kyle in a couple of weeks to see how his season plays out.
