Texas A&M’s “Friday Night Lights” scrimmage was a success last year for Kevin Sumlin and his staff, as they were able to lure some of the state’s top talent, including national targets, to College Station. With the class of 2014 already shaping up to be one of the best in the country, currently number one in the nation, the point of emphasis at this year’s event will be on the juniors-to-be.
Williams already holds an offer from Ole Miss.
The Aggies have already extended invitations to many of the Lone Star State’s top sophomore prospects, including Dallas Bishop Lynch running back Rawleigh Williams. With an offer from the Ole Miss Rebels already on the table, the 5-foot-10, 195-pounder is sure to see more scholarships come his way in the near future.
Williams has been communicating weekly with his area recruiter David Beaty. Getting down to Aggieland in two weeks could put him one step closer to receiving an offer from a program he’s already high on.
“We talk at least once a week,” Williams said. “Coach Beaty has been telling me how much they like my film and how they really want to get me down for a visit. When they decided to do a sophomore day he called me to invite me down to it. He also invited a friend of mine from Prime Prep, James Proche.”
He added, “I’ve never been to A&M so I’m looking forward to seeing the facilities and meeting all the coaches.”
Picking up his second SEC offer from the Ags would be a dream come true for Williams.
“That would be a huge offer,” he said. “SEC school, Texas school, and they’re doing big things with their program. I like their offense and their coaching staff too.”
He added, “I would definitely take my time with it but that would be a big offer to have. I want to have fun with the recruiting process and see how everything goes first.”
Williams, who rushed for 1191 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2012, is excited about the interest he’s receiving from schools early in the process.
“It’s pretty cool, it’s starting to speed up a little bit,” he said. “I’m just trying to stay humble, keep working hard. More schools are starting to contact me. I spoke to the Arkansas running backs coach today. They told me I’m high on their radar as well.”
