The number 3 safety in the nation, choosing the Longhorns over LSU, Alabama and Florida.

Earlier this summer, Williams revealed to us what his criteria was for his future school.

"I wanna be surrounded by leaders, that will get me to the place I want to be," Williams explained. "I want to go to school for mechanical engineering. So, (I need) a big school on that. Then, probably, the atmosphere. The people around the thing."
