WALL, Texas — Wall football's Tate Williams dreams came true this week verbally committing to play at Baylor University.

The offensive coach at Baylor, Joe Wickline, liked what he saw from William's highlights.

"He called me and told me coach Aranda wanted to get on the phone with me, we talked that night and he made me and offer and that was pretty cool."

"All of the coaches I've talked to have been super good to me and welcoming. They seem like good people and that's the kind of program I want to play for. Going to a school that gives you a great education," Williams said.

Will one season left at Wall, Williams looks forward to continue getting better gearing up for his final season in West Texas.
