Brian Williams is the No. 1 safety and No. 13 overall prospect in the ESPN 300 for 2019. Last season, he racked up 78 tackles, eight interceptions, a fumble recovery, four touchdowns and a runner-up finish at states for the Bishop Dunne (Dallas). Recently, he committed to Texas A&M. Now he’s agreed to give USA TODAY HSS exclusive access into his world by chronicling everything from intimate details about his recruitment to his everyday life in a monthly blog.
Hello guys! This is Brian Williams and I’m back with another blog!
It’s good to talk to you guys again. There’s been a lot going on since the last blog.
First, I’m committed to Texas A&M! I went on an amazing unofficial visit there and I committed that Sunday after I got back. I knew when I left Coach (Jimbo) Fisher’s office that I was going to commit. I hadn’t really looked at Texas A&M until Coach Fisher and Coach (Mike) Elko got there.
Coach Elko and I had been cool since my freshman year when he was Notre Dame.
However, when I made plans to take the unofficial to Texas A&M, I had no plans to decide. I just thought it would be a cool visit.
Knowing how important my academic goals are to me, the first thing they did was sit me down with the head of the academic staff and a woman from the Computer Engineering department. They really made it clear to me how that could work.
That was so impressive to me and important because that’s the path I want to go. Just seeing that it could actually work at a school like A&M was big because their Computer Engineering program is top notch.
