Irmo (S.C.) Dutch Fork wide receiver Antonio Williams picked up a big offer Thursday night, adding to more than two dozen programs on his list.

The 6-foot, 180-pounder speedster tweeted Thursday that Texas has now entered the mix in his recruitment, joining the likes of Auburn, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Clemson and others.

Williams, the No. 126 overall player in the 2022 On300, is one of the top remaining receivers on the board. And despite having four-stars Brenen Thompson and Armani Winfield already in fold, the Longhorns are still looking to add to their impressive recruiting haul.

Can Texas break into the mix for Antonio Williams?

On3’s Jeremy Johnson talked extensively with Williams a little more than a week ago, and he was focused on a visit to Ole Miss this weekend. The Rebels, along with Auburn, Georgia, Florida State, Notre Dame, and South Carolina, made his top-six list in early September.

Williams has already taken an official visit to South Carolina, and after his trip to Ole Miss, he’ll have three left. Auburn and Georgia are likely to get two of those, but the final one remains up in the air. If Steve Sarkisian and Co. can get him on campus, though, it could go a long way toward helping the Longhorns.

“I feel like the four schools that I’m taking officials to definitely have the better chance of me going there,” Williams told Johnson.

With his school just 19 miles from South Carolina’s campus, he’s become intimately familiar with the Gamecocks program. And they’ll be tough to fend off.

“It’s a great home atmosphere,” Antonio Williams said. “I’ve been down there plenty of times before. Seeing it as a recruit and having people come up to you and take pictures is crazy to me. I didn’t even have an offer going into my junior year and then I just kind of blew up. South Carolina has been showing me a lot of love.”
