Williams announced his commitment to Montana State on July 23. On Dec. 22, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram said Williams was “thought to be a hard commit” to Montana State. In November, the second-team all-state lineman received in-state offers from other FCS schools like Houston Baptist and Sam Houston State.
The senior has played varsity football since he was a freshman in high school, starting 63 consecutive games, recording 107 tackles, 19 for loss, and 8.5 sacks while leading his team to its seventh championship appearance in nine years.
