Williams, Wright Ready for New Season

Scout.com has a quick update on La Marque quarterback Emmanuel Williams and running back Tim Wright. Both have some interesting things going on in their recruitment. Texas High School Scout writer Brandon Williams caught up with them recently…

La Marque's bid to return to the Class 4A, Division II final was dashed by District 24-4A rival Manvel last Saturday, December 3 closing out the high school run of QB Emmanuel Williams and RB Timothy Wright, both who had been starting for the Cougars since early in their freshmen year.

The next chapter for the duo is in progress, as both have received attention from various programs.

"Right now, Wyoming, Southeast Louisiana and Northeast Louisiana are looking at me," said Williams. "In January, I'm going to visit Wyoming."

Williams, who accounted for more than 2,800 yards from scrimmage and 38 touchdowns this season, has already visited Southeast Louisiana and enjoyed what he saw.

"I liked the atmosphere and the community," said Williams. "They have a lot of support from the fans and the citizens in Hammond."

Wright, who rushed for 1,835 yards and 28 touchdowns, is currently Scout's ninth-best available back and has offers from Baylor, Kansas State and Texas Tech, yet there is one (current) Big 12 school that has his full attention.

"I'm still rolling the dice a little bit, but Texas A&M is looking like a good choice," said Wright.

While the Aggies remain in search of a new coach, Wright remains focused on playing in College Station next fall regardless of who will be leading the team in its first season in the SEC.
