Tigers grab Texas OT
Offensive tackle Jordan Williams (Denton, Texas/Billy Ryan) verbally commits to Missouri, multiple sources report.
Williams also had offers from Arizona State, Arizona, Stanford, UCLA, Colorado, Boise State, Oregon State, Virginia, Arkansas State and Southern Methodist.
“I was really a basketball guy, but after I quit basketball, that’s when all my scholarship offers came in,” Williams later told ESPN's Damon Sayles. “My coaches said they’d come if I focused on one sport. I didn’t expect to become a football recruit, but they [Missouri] took a chance on me.”
