It’s never been a matter of if Eli Williams would go to college—at least not for the last several years. Since he began making a splash in Sapulpa offense and started attracting the attention of the scouts, It’s always been a matter of who would be the college that made an offer he couldn’t refuse?
The junior quarterback is set to make a final decision this Monday, May 6th at a signing event to be held on 2:30 pm at the Chieftain Event Center. But those who don’t want to wait could at least take an educated guess based on what Williams said earlier this week about his choices.
According to a recent interview with 247Sports.com, Williams has narrowed his college career down to a final four, and any one of them could be the one he decides to go with. The schools are TCU, Texas Tech, Kansas State and North Texas.
“TCU is in my top four because of the family environment they give off,” Williams told 247Sports. “I have always respected Texas Tech as a school and what they did for (Patrick) Mahomes is something I can see in myself.
“K-State is in the top four because they just got a new coaching staff, and they helped with how Carson Wentz developed. And North Texas is in the top four because they were my first offer and I will always have respect for them.”
During the 2018 season, Williams completed 74 of 134 pass attempts for 1,275 yards with 11 touchdowns and only two interceptions. But, it’s with his legs that he made teams pay. He ran for 916 yards and 15 touchdowns on 150 carries. Williams was a catalyst behind the Chieftains’ first winning record and playoff berth in five years.
He’s participated in both the Under Armour All America Football Camp and Elite 11 quarterback competition, and he’s been invited to Adrian Peterson’s All Day Elite Camp as well as to Honolulu to participate in the Hawaii Tiki Bowl next January.
