Texas freshman DL Mike Williams has quit the team and will transfer

Williams was ranked as a three-star prospect in the Longhorns 2018 class.


Texas Longhorns true freshman Mike Williams’ time with Tom Herman’s program has come to an end.

According to a Twitter report from The Football Brainiacs last week, Williams, a member of Texas’ 2018 class, has quit the team. The details behind Williams’ decision to quit the team are not yet public.

On Sunday, Texas confirmed the report:

A former three-star prospect out of Baton Rouge (La.) Dunham School, Williams arrived in Austin revered as an elite physical talent who played quarterback and defensive end in high school. Williams signed with the Longhorns as the nation’s No. 527 player and No. 38 athlete before making the transition to a full-time defensive lineman in Austin.

Williams didn’t see the field throughout his freshman season.
