The invitation came in the mail, but Garland, Texas wide receiver Malcolm Williams had a scheduling conflict that wouldn't allow him to get to the Texas Junior Day this past weekend.
Williams' mother, Gina Williams, says that her son will be making a trip to Austin but it just couldn't take place this past weekend. Though an official offer has not been extended to the 6-foot-3, 205-pound receiver, Williams' mother says it's clear who the favorite is as of today.
"Texas, that's the one for him right now on top," Williams' mother said. "I really don't know when it all happened like that, but when he was in ninth grade he always talked about Florida. But, now in the last couple of years he's talked a lot about Texas."

Williams' mom also says that the recruiting process is quite fun for the parents involved as well. After speaking with coaches from not only the in-state schools but around the country, she really feels like it's a blessing for her son to be where he is.
"It's exciting to me," Williams' mother said. "Especially to hear how they speak of him and how interested they are of him. Not too many children get this opportunity and we know it's a blessing for him. He's thinking about a lot of stuff right now."
The only trip planned right now is to Texas in March.
"Malcolm is thinking about other trips, but this is the only one that they're set on right now," Williams' mother said. "He's still just holding the one offer from Texas A&M, but he's getting a lot of interest from all over."
