Aldine WR hopes to get noticed more

Aldine WR Tyson Williams has been the Mustangs' go-to guy this season. He is one of the area leaders in receptions and leads District 19-5A. But his numbers do not reflect the amount of interest he is receiving from colleges. TPI caught up with Williams by phone for this recruiting update.

Despite being one of Greater Houston's top wide receivers, Aldine's Tyson Williams is not receiving the interest he was expecting from Division I colleges. According to Williams, the interest seemed pretty steady months ago, but since then it has slow down quite a bit.

"I do not have an offer right now," the 6-0, 190-pound Williams said. "I was getting some interest from North Carolina, Oklahoma State, and Buffalo, but here lately I haven't really been getting too much. I did hear recently from Tarleton State (Division II)."

Of these schools Williams favors North Carolina, and then Buffalo.

"They (North Carolina) was the first school that was talking to me," Williams said. "I have always liked North Carolina since I was a kid. With Buffalo, they invited me to a game but I couldn't go because of the season."

On the season, Williams has 51 catches for 685 yards and five touchdowns. He said he gets the word out to coaches through his website.

"I haven't sent out any tapes, but I email coaches my website tysonwilliams.net," Williams said. "I hope that more colleges start calling soon.

Williams and the Mustang team finish the season off next Friday against Aldine Nimitz.
