Juco CB looking at five schools

Navarro (Texas) College cornerback Kyle Williams came to Chuck Lawrence's program as a quarterback. And he's going to leave as one of the better cornerbacks to play at Navarro.
"Kyle came here two years ago out of Pine Bluff, Ark.," Lawrence said. "He was a pretty good mobile quarterback. But, we converted him to cornerback right away because we felt he could be something pretty special there."
The move may have paid off for Williams.
"He is now what everyone wants," Lawrence said. "He's a 6-foot-1 cornerback with 4.4 speed in the 40. He comes right out of that mold the schools want to compete with the bigger receivers nowadays."
Five schools have moved the front of the race for Williams' talents. And all five have offered scholarships.
"He's being recruited really hard by Kansas State, South Carolina, Arkansas, Baylor and TCU," the six-year head coach said. "I would say Kansas State would probably be the favorite at this time."
Williams has yet to line up any official visits.
"He hasn't lined up any visits, yet," Lawrence said. "He will do that after our season ends. And that is on Saturday. We'll play Blinn in our final game."
Navarro has an uncharacteristic 1-7 record on the season.
"We have been devastated with injuries," he said. "We have lost seven of our top 10 offensive linemen. We're using a quarterback who opened the season as the fourth stringer. We'll be alright. You have some of this every year. But this year we've been hit really hard. Hopefully we're getting a few years worth out of the way this year."
