Ennis, Texas is home to one of the bigger runningback prospects in the state; Terence Williams. At 6-foot-2, 220-pounds, Williams has no problem piling up tough yards.
The 2014 prospect did just that in 2012, rushing 211 times for 1,368 yards and 15 touchdowns. He averaged 6.48 yards per carry.
Baylor struck fast with the recruitment of Williams as he became the Bears’ first commitment of their 2014 class. Although he remains committed to Baylor, Williams is receiving plenty of interest from others including TCU and Texas A&M, both of whom have offered.
He will visit College Station this weekend but last weekend he made his way Ft. Worth with Ennis teammate Jahshawn Johnson for a TCU junior day. Williams’ expectations were exceeded on the visit.
“I liked it, it was pretty nice,” he said. “It was nicer than I thought it was going to be. Last time I was there was when they imploded the stadium.”
Williams says the Frogs offered him as a runningback and he had a chance to visit with TCU runningback coach Jarrett Anderson while on his visit.
“He told me how much they wanted me and I watched some film with him,” Williams said of his conversation with Anderson. “He was telling me how their runningbacks are speed backs and they’re mostly short. I’m a tall back.”
The big runner also had a chance to sit down with TCU head coach Gary Patterson. Williams was impressed with the coach’s “enthusiasm”.
“He was pretty cool, I liked talking to him,” he said of his visit with Patterson. “He was real energetic when he talked.”
Aside from his recent visit, Williams doesn’t have too much familiarity with TCU at the moment.
“I don’t really know much about them, I need to do a little more research on them,” Williams said of TCU.
