May 9, 2013By Kenneth True of Nations Elite
T.V. Williams is a fast rising WR prospect with 10 offers to date from Kentucky, Houston, California, Texas State, Oregon State, South Alabama, North Texas, Tulsa, and Navy. The interest in the 5’10 165 lbs. WR doesn’t stop there as he’s gotten interest from Baylor, Oklahoma State, Arkansas, Colorado State, Colorado, Oklahoma, Oregon, UT-San Antonio, Duke, and Boise State.
“Nebraska, Oregon State, California, and Kentucky are recruiting me the hardest” Williams tells Nations Elite. “All schools are being considered an in the near future my parents and I will sit down and review them in depth because I plan on graduating in December, so the time is getting near. Believe me we have a spreadsheet all set to score everything.” Williams discussed when asked about schools standing out and a potential timeframe.
“My dad and I talk daily about the recruiting process and how blessed I am to be able to compete for scholarships, he makes me understand that to be recruited you have to respect the process, the schools, and the coaches that put so much energy into it.”
T.V. recently took in Oklahoma State’s spring game, of which he says “I enjoyed speaking with the coaching staff and their facilities and housing are excellent.” T.V. also discussed 3 other visits he took to the campuses of Baylor, Houston, and Kentucky in saying:
Baylor – “I visited Baylor for their spring game and their team is always hyped and excited, their staff is full of energy and always jumping around.”
Houston – “I visited Houston early on, and liked the environment and the staff seemed really cool. Coach Levine is a classy guy, he keeps in touch with me and I like the family atmosphere.”
Kentucky – “I visited Kentucky and Big Blue Nation for their spring game and loved it. They have a great fan base, staff, and the future looks bright.”
As for potential college team mates T.V. says he’d like to play with at the next level are “David Tachie a 6’4 285 lbs. OG and Kennan Samuel a 6’2 215 lbs. DE. It usually never works out that you play with any of your high schools team mates, but hey you never know. The Dallas Ft. Worth area has a ton of solid football players and I would just want to play with guys that would love the school like I do and want to win.”
Williams said Kentucky, Cal, Oregon State, Tulsa, Nevada, Oklahoma State, Baylor, Boise State, Nebraska, North Texas, and Texas State stopped by the first week of spring. T.V. says most of the visits were academic reviews which he should be ok with a 3.1 GPA and a 1550 score on the SAT.
In the state of Texas football is God, and at McKinney HS it’s no different as the program features a 100 yard indoor practice facility, T.V. tells Nations Elite that McKinney is upgrading their facilities to include a new 2 story team facility that will feature new coaches offices, team rooms, and a locker room. Williams ended by saying “Only in Texas, huh?”
One program that we went in depth with T.V. on was Kentucky who is under the leadership of new HC Mark Stoops of which he talked about his relationship with other Wildcat recruits in saying “Thaddeus (Snodgrass) and I keep in touch once or twice a week and are really cool, I talked to him the week before going up to the spring game where we met and hit it off pretty good. I like his game and how he approaches recruiting to, his timing regarding recruiting was faster than mine so he’s already committed.” T.V. also spoke about QB Drew Barker who will make his decision tomorrow in saying “He seems to be cool to, we follow each other on Facebook although neither of us usually say much on Facebook.”
In other Kentucky related new regarding Williams recruitment he says “I speak with Coach Brown, and Coach Mainord once a week, I have spent most of my times with Coach Mainord, he is a solid guy I like talking to him and we talk about more than just football.”
