Tomorrow is a huge day for Texas A&M football on the recruiting trail. Five-star wide receiver prospect Hykeem Williams is expected to make his commitment on Friday afternoon, and the Aggies have been well in the mix for the blue chip recruit for a while now.
Other teams in the race for Williams include Florida State, Pitt, Georgia, Miami, and Alabama. However, the Aggies and Seminoles seem to be the front-runners for Williams as of now. Over today and yesterday, the Seminoles may have become the favorite.
Since the beginning of the month, several predictions and crystal balls have flurried in regarding the five-star’s recruitment. On September 19th, a prediction for the Aggies was logged on Rivals, however, since then, its been all Florida State.
As of this writing, since Wednesday, between all three sites (Rivals, 247sports, and On3), nine different people have registered predictions or crystal balls for Williams to Florida State. None of them are under great confidence, but everyone seems to be thinking the wideout is leaning towards FSU.
Does Texas A&M football still have a chance to land Hykeem Williams?
The short, yet certain, answer to this question is absolutely. A&M has been in Williams’ ear for so long, and he’s been very high on the program. He has visited campus several times, most recently being on this past Saturday for the Aggies’ win over the Hurricanes, another team involved in his recruitment.
After the unofficial visit, Williams had some great things to say about Texas A&M. He mentioned that the A&M campus is “the best campus in the country” while also talking about the youth on the team, saying “they’re going to be something” over the next couple years.
The elite pass-catcher clearly loves what Aggieland has to offer. Despite his commitment tomorrow, he is expected to still take his official visits—as of now, he has an official scheduled to FSU in November and A&M in December.
This is a recruitment that will come down to the wire regardless of where he chooses at 1 p.m CT tomorrow. If he chooses the Seminoles, the Aggies will still be very much involved in his recruitment up to National Signing Day.
