The improvements came after a busy season in the weight room and with various trainers throughout the Houston area.
“I feel like I’ve given up a lot of work,” Williams said. “I’ve improved my speed and overall skill, which is the main focus of the summer. Just need to be faster and stronger so I can come out here and play for free this year.”
Williams attended LSU’s opener first State of Florida earlier this month, and loved what he saw despite the loss.
“They fought hard, I’ll give them that,” he said. “The talent they have right now, they fought hard and that’s all I needed to see. They didn’t lay down and they came back anyway and fought to the end. It was a first. I first went to New Orleans and at the Superdome. I can’t wait to be in Death Valley, I haven’t been to a game yet.”
His first game visit to LSU will be this weekend as he looks forward to seeing the culture in Baton Rouge firsthand.
“It’s just a fun team down there,” he said. “It’s all positive, it’s a lot of love. They talk to me everyday, we communicate. They call me and text me. It’s just a positive vibe to them, It feels so right.”
As for the other Williams recruiting programs, he may be in for a few other games but he feels satisfied about his future at LSU.
“I’ll be attending a few games this year, but LSU is where my heart is,” he said.
His main communication with LSU went through the safety coach Kerry Cooks.
“He’s a regular guy,” he said. “He’s also from Texas so he’s related. We have a lot in common. He told me I have everything else, I just have to work at my pace. That’s what it is. I went into the lab and did.”
At 6-foot-2, 190-pounds tall, Williams is the 170th-ranked player in the nation for 2024, according to Rivals. He is the 15th ranked safety player in the country and the 24th player from the state of Texas.
