Texas cornerback Aaron Williams will forgo his senior season and enter the NFL Draft, according to a report in the Austin American-Statesman.
Longhorns coaches were informed of the decision on Thursday. The NFL Draft Advisory Committee told Williams that he would project as a first or second-round pick, and he also consulted with several former Longhorns and NFL scouts before making the decision.
According to the report, Williams hasn't signed with an agent yet, but plans to soon.
"He feels good with his decision,” Williams' father, Anthony Williams, told the paper. “One of the things I told him as father is that there are a lot of moving parts to this and he’s got to live with his decision and not look back. He prayed about it and is at peace with it."
