Appalachian State Mountaineers head coach Scott Satterfield likely hasn’t been a particularly happy man the last few days. His staff evaluated and landed Sebring (Fla.) running back DJ Williams during the summer, but now Williams is on the radar of national programs and unlikely to end up playing his college football in Boone.
On Saturday, the Texas Longhorns became the latest of those programs to official enter the 5’11, 210-pounder’s recruitment:
Auburn, Miami, and Tennessee have all offered in the last three days, with Williams quickly setting official visits to Coral Gables (November 17) and Auburn (November 23).
So there is some definite competition for Williams right now, but it does appear that he still has three official visits remaining.
Williams currently plans on signing and enrolling early at the school of his choice and looks like a potential back-up plan for the Horns if position coach misses on IMG standouts Trey Sanders and Noah Cain. Texas remains in contention with both — Cain took his official visit for the West Virginia game.
Currently a consensus three-star prospect, Williams is ranked as No. 1,914 player nationally, the No. 118 running back, and the No. 257 player in Florida, according to the 247Sports Composite. But that’s set to change soon once the services evaluate his senior film.
