DeSoto, Texas, three-star athlete Patrick Williams and his teammates were in the state rankings throughout most of the season. However, it was a season that came to a crashing end in the second round of the state playoffs when DeSoto was upset by Lubbock Monterey on Satruday.
“We lost 21-19,” Williams, who is 6-foot-2 and 194 pounds, said. “I just don’t know what happened. I’m still really in the dumps about it. We played horrible. I guess maybe thinking about recruiting and going on these visits might help me get back up.”
Williams will get his first chance to think more about recruiting this weekend when he takes an official visit to Colorado.
“I’m supposed to go on Thursday,” he said. “You never know, it might be the place for me.”
But that’s likely just the first stop on the Williams’ visit tour.
“I’m also going to visit Utah (12-5) and Missouri (12-12),” he said. “I was scheduled for Kansas last weekend, but we had a playoff game. I’m going to have to reschedule that one. I’m also likely going to visit Kansas State and Purdue. Those are the teams that have kind of separated themselves.”
But Williams also said Arkansas and Texas A&M have been calling a lot lately and could end up getting a visit.
“I’m kind of just waiting to see what happens,” he said.
Williams is ranked as the nation’s No. 30 athlete in the nation. He earned first-team all district honors as a junior and is expected to repeat as a senior.
