When the TCU Horned Frogs offered Daryl Williams they made one thing very clear. They wanted him and they thought he cold be a key member of a national championship run. After about a month of two teams sharing the lofty position of favorite, one team has seperated itself from the pack. PurpleMenace.Com caught up with Daryl to get his thoughts.
"The whole process is still going pretty good" said Williams. "I think Miami is about to offer but other than that, I've still got the same offers."
With offers on the table from TCU, Missouri, Nebraska, Texas Tech and others, Williams has established himself as one of the premier tackles in all of the Southwest. After naming TCU and Missouri as co-leaders last month, it appears that one team has taken the lead.
"It's 50/50 right now with TCU and Missouri" said Williams. "Actually, I'm kind of leaning to Missouri right now."
With Williams' teammate, James Franklin committing to the Tigers in March, it now looks like the Big 12 North program is the team to beat for Williams' highly covted signature."
When asked if Williams planned on taking any more visits before he made his final decision, it sounded like the big offensive lineman was unsure if any more visits would be necessary.
"I'm not sure if I will or not" said Williams. "I have a really big family and it's really expensive to take visits. I don't know if I will take any more or not. If I do, I would like to see Kansas, Nebraska and Tech."
With his high school team's spring practice starting tomorrow, Williams touched on a few things that he would like to improve on for his senior season.
"I really just want to work on my stance" he said. "Between my stance and my footwork, those are the main things I need to get better with. With James(Franklin) this year, we should have a much better running team, he's a true dual threat quarterback."
When asked what his goals were for his senior year, Williams didn't hesitate.
"I want to be a team captain, make all-state and get more pancake blocks."
Williams mentioned TCU's knack for graduating players as the main reason they were held in such high regard with the big Texan but that may not be enough for the Frogs. With it now looking like Missouri is the team to beat, the Frogs either have to turn up with heat in their efforts to land Williams or start looking at other options for 2010.
