#6 in 2011. Arlington Martin RB Danzel Williams Has Committed To The Sooners

via www.dallasnews.com

The Oklahoma Sooners have received a verbal commitment from 2011 RB/S Danzel Williams of Arlington Martin.  This is the first commitment to come out of this past weekends Junior Day (the second this season for the Sooners) and it seems to have come as a surprise to those who have been following Oklahoma's progress at the position.  Viewed as an all-purpose running back by Rivals, Williams is the first RB commit in a very strong year for the position in Texas.  Oklahoma is also actively recruiting Malcolm Brown, Herschel Sims, Aaron Green, Brandon Williams and Bradley Marquez (who may be seen as a slot WR).  Because of the dearth of talent that they are pursuing, OU may have a safety spot in mind for Williams, who garnered all-state honors last year in his first attempt playing the position. 

Here is a wrap up from the Star-Telegram last month:

He was anything but pleasing for opposing teams last season. A natural running back, Williams rushed for 1,221 yards and 22 touchdowns and caught 21 passes for 255 yards and two scores. He was even better from his safety position, which he was playing only out of necessity. He ended up garnering all-state honors.

"I think he is going to be a tremendous college football player," Wager said. "He makes plays. Recruiting isn't an exact science. I think people within the recruiting world and the college world have two philosophies. One, what is the stereotypical height, weight and 40-time to play that position? I certainly understand and appreciate that. But there are others out there who ask themselves, 'Does he make plays? Is he a spectacular player?' Danzel Williams is a spectacular football player.

Stay tuned as we bring you more information as it comes in.
