Lufkin 2019 defensive tackle Carl Williams' Division I FBS offer list reached a dozen schools on Thursday.

The Panthers' defender announced via Twitter that Ole Miss became the 12th program to offer him.

Williams (6-4, 310) also holds offers from Arkansas, Houston, Kansas, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, SMU, Southern Miss, TCU, Tulsa, and UTSA.

Last season, Williams was the anchor of a dominating defensive front that shut down opposing running games. He finished 2017 with 56 tackles, four sacks, and three forced fumbles in leading the Panthers to an 11-3 season that concluded in the Class 6A Division II quarterfinals.

Ole Miss went 6-6 last season and 3-5 in the SEC under interim head coach Matt Luke, who was hired as the full-time coach following the campaign.

Williams, like all juniors, is first eligible to sign with any team that offers him beginning in December.
