Like the rest of the Generation Wideout elite, Williams is subjected to a weekly diet of double teams and brackets, even at the risk of leaving others open. Also, like most of his gifted peers, he gets a variety of hitch passes and bubble screens that give him a chance to create something from very little, trying to make one guy miss, as he did back in Odessa. "Make 'em miss or run 'em over," Williams says. "Either way."
His dreams are taking shape—winning the Biletnikoff Award, earning an invite to New York City as a Heisman finalist and leading the Longhorns to a BCS bowl. "I see us winning nine more games this year," he said before the Tulane game. "After that I see myself being the Number 1 pick and then going up against Champ Bailey and Charles Woodson next year. I can't wait."
He doesn't have to. Williams and his counterparts at college football's hottest position have the future in their hands.
