Recruiting update on Ryan’s J.T. Williams, Sekou Clark

The closer it gets to national signing day, the more hectic college football recruiting gets for kids that are still undecided.

Well, we’ve got updates on Ryan defensive linemen J.T. Williams and Sekou Clark.

Clark, who’s listed on Ryan’s roster at 6-foot 4-inch, 240 pounds, said he received an offer from Boise State. Boise State (which actually tried to make a late run at Guyer quarterback and Texas pledge Jerrod Heard) wants Clark to take a visit to the campus on Jan. 31.

The Ryan senior spoke on the phone with Boise State assistant coaches Kent Riddle and Steve Caldwell on Tuesday, and he said it was pretty cool to be offered by the team with the blue turf.

Clark has already scheduled a visit to Louisiana-Monroe, another school contending for Clark.

As for Williams, a senior defensive tackle, Louisiana Tech has emerged as the top suitor for Williams.

Williams (6-3, 270 pounds) was linked to Missouri for much of the season, but Williams said on Wednesday that Missouri is no longer a possible destination. Williams’ brother, Jordan, is currently an offensive lineman for the Tigers.

Missouri is coming off an appearance in the Southeastern Conference championship game and a victory against Oklahoma State in the Cotton Bowl.

Right now, Tech and Houston Baptist, a school with a start-up football program, are the top offers for Williams. He’s been previously offered by Houston and North Texas as well.

Williams’ recruiting is now more wide-open than it has been in months, so expect schools to attempt to sway Williams (6-1, 210 pounds).

As for Ryan senior running back Tyrone Williams, he said Arkansas State has showed some interest in him recently. The running back said he’s planning on taking visits to Prairie View A&M and Northwestern State.

I’m sure all of this will be in a state of flux as we get closer to Feb. 5 and kids sign their national letters of intent.
