After watching him impress at the Peach Jam, the Texas Longhorns have finally put an offer on the table for rising Missouri City Elkins shooting guard Donovan Williams.

With Texas jumping into the mix, the Longhorns join programs such as Oklahoma, Kansas State, Miami, SMU, and Arizona State in pursuit of his services, among others.
The Longhorns have been in contact with Williams for some time now, and he actually has a tie to the program, as he has long trained with Houston-area icon John Lucas, who is the father of Texas assistant coach Jai Lucas.
A four-star prospect, Williams visited the Forty Acres weeks ago and detailed to Orangebloods’ Dustin McComas was stood out about his trip.
“I thought the visit was great. The facilities are top notch. The coaches are great, real nice personalities. The players hold each other accountable, nice to meet them and talk to them,” Williams said. “I was able to watch a workout in the weight room and it really opened my eyes to some different things.”
Now officially in the mix, Texas seemingly has limited time to make a major impact in Williams’ recruitment, as he’s aiming to make an early commitment and sign with the program of his choice in November. Thus far, only one Crystal Ball has been put in for Williams, which favors SMU.
A 6’5, 180-pound wing, Williams averaged 13.2 points per game as a junior. He’s ranked as the nation’s No. 98 player, No. 16 shooting guard, and as the No. 7 player in Texas, per the 247Sports Composite.
