Miami is First School to Offer Lufkin’s D.J. Williams

D.J. Williams caught scouts’ eyes with a strong junior season. Friday he received his first offer.

Lufkin’s standout 2014 defensive tackle was offered by Miami, he said on Twitter. first reported the offer.

Williams has all of the measurables high-major football programs look for. The 6-foot-4, 290-pounder had 56 tackles, six for loss, and four sacks in 2012, when the Panthers went 9-4, winning six of their last seven games, to reach the Class 5A Division II Region II semifinals.

Williams attended a Texas junior day in March. Lufkin coach Todd Quick recently told that the Longhorns are very interested in Williams.

Including Williams, Lufkin will have four of its top six tacklers back for 2013. Quick said Lufkin returns five of its front seven, including all three linebackers in its 4-3 base scheme. Quick added that Williams will be the anchor of that group.
