According to the 247Sports Transfer Rankings, player No. 8 is currently on the transfer portal and the top rated receiver, and was thought to be the creator of the game to join his former head coach with the USC Trojans. This may still be the case with the five Sports Ball predictions for the Trojans the day before his visit to Austin, but the Longhorns have the opportunity to sell it hard now that he’s on campus.
During his first year at Sooners, Williams appeared in 11 of 13 Sooners games, scoring 380 yards and landing at 38 receptions. As a recruit, Williams was a four-star receiver, player No. 43 overall and No. 4 wide receiver in the country.
If Williams shocks analysts and joins the Longhorns, he will be the fourth member of the wide reception room to be among the top 100 players in their recruitment class – joining Jordan Whittington, Xavier Worthy and Brennen Thompson on this list.
Texas needs to find players with immediate effect at the receiver, with Worthy accounting for 28.5 percent of the Longhorns’ income and 36 percent of their receiving yards in 2021.
