Aggie commit off to a good start
"We had to change things up on offense after our quarterback tore his ACL," Williams said. "I've actually practiced as the backup emergency quarterback. Coach feels that if we have to I can run around and make something happen with my athleticism."
Williams hasn't had the opportunity to take snaps yet in a game, but the shuffle at quarterback has caused the team to throw less, and that has affected Williams' numbers at tight end.
"We don't throw a lot now. I don't have many catches but I did get a touchdown on Thursday," Williams said. "We rotate a lot on offense to keep me fresh on defense."
Speaking of defense, Williams' numbers are very impressive after four games, especially when the opposition is avoiding you. The 6-foot-5, 240 pound Texas A&M commit has racked up 28 tackles and five sacks so far.
"Teams know me from last year, so they run away from me," Williams said. "So most of my plays are in pursuit across the field and I chase them down and make some plays."
Texas A&M initially accepted Williams' commitment as a tight end after a dominant performance at a summer camp. Several other schools have been recruiting him as a tight end. Given his recent production as a defensive end, does Williams still see himself as a tight end at the next level?
"I've been thinking about that. This is my second year playing defensive end and I'm comfortable there for now," Williams said. "But I think my natural skill set is better suited for tight end at the next level. I'm flexible about it, but I'd like to get a shot at tight end."
Williams is wondering if the Aggies and other colleges will see his statistics and change their mind and want him as a defensive end.
"I have a feeling that the coaches will ask me about playing defensive end because of my numbers this season," Williams said. "I don't know what I'll think if that happens."
Williams says he's still committed to Texas A&M, but he still plans to take official visits to several schools. Nebraska, Kansas State, Texas Tech, and Oklahoma are among the possibilities along with the Aggies.
"I'm solid to Texas A&M, but when I committed I planned to visit other schools just to make sure I made the right decision," Williams said. "I feel good about A&M, but this is an important decision so you want to be sure."
Williams was unable to watch the Aggies play Miami on national television as the T-Wolves of Norman North had a game of their own as they defeated Edmond Santa Fe on Thursday. Williams hopes to watch the Aggies in the near future, and will certainly make the short drive in November to watch Texas A&M play the Sooners in Norman.
