In the aftermath of a major surge on the recruiting trail, the Texas Longhorns have extended another offer to a highly-touted 2021 talent, with the latest example coming in the form of Plant City (Fla.) product Mario Williams, he announced on Friday.
Thankful to receive an offer from The University Of Texas #golonghorns @HamiltonESPN @DemetricDWarren @BCarringtonUT @Rivals @247Sports @coachboothpchs @COACHTONYROZIER @CIGARSTAR007 pic.twitter.com/5WHW2Y4LV5— Lootrunner.mariooo (@MarioWill00) August 2, 2019
Currently regarded as the nation’s No. 6 wide receiver, per the 247Sports Composite, Williams’ Texas offer brings his total to 25, as the Horns join the likes of Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Miami, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Penn State, and Tennessee in the mix.
His only Crystal Ball pick to date favors Oklahoma.
As a sophomore, the 5’10, 165-pound Williams fell just shy of the 1,000-yard mark, hauling in 51 receptions for 950 yards and 14 touchdowns.
Thus far, Texas does hold key commitments at the position from Dallas Skyline star Quaydarius Davis and versatile Denton Ryan standout Billy Bowman, and the Horns are in the mix with numerous others including top-ranked national receiver and fellow Florida product, Agiye Hall, who recently named the Longhorns in his top 10, and Texas natives JoJo Earle (Aledo) and Latrell Neville (Missouri City Hightower).
Of that specific bunch, only Hall is ranked higher, as Williams is dubbed as the nation’s No. 43 player overall.
