After recently learning about the Buffs sixth commitment DE Chidera Uzo-Diribe, Colorado has also landed lucky number seven in Missouri City (TX) Fort Bend Marshall High linebacker Lowell Williams. The 6-foot-1, 210-pound linebacker visited Colorado this week and I guess he saw enough to pull the trigger. Williams also had offers from UTEP and Rice and was getting interest from Oklahoma State, Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas, Purdue, Oregon State and Utah.
Last year, Lowell was ranked 2nd team all-district in 5A as a defensive end. Williams also has been making some headlines this year:
Kempner drove to the Marshall 20 on its next drive, Shalala fumbled his third snap of the game. This time Marshall’s Lowell Williams (two sacks) recovered and returned it 75 yards to the Kempner 5. The Cougars pushed Marshall back two yards on the next two plays then dodged two incomplete passes – the second by wide receiver Jalon Thompson on a fake field goal.
Lowell Williams has also been ranked as the 225th high school player in the state of Texas. ESPN calls the linebacker a hard working defender:
Lowell Williams (Missouri City, Texas/Fort Bend Marshall) is a hard-working defender who spent his junior year at end. As a senior, the 6-2, 205-pounder will spend more time at his natural linebacker position. The Rice Owls were the first program to step forward and the offer the Houston-area sleeper.
Here is a video of Lowell Williams. Most of the highlights are him lining up at defensive end. He is now playing linebacker which is what he projects at for the next level. He has a strong burst and shows the ability to get to the quarterback.
Welcome to the Buffs, Lowell!
