Dutch Fork WR Antonio Williams was scheduled for an official visit to Ole Miss this weekend, the same weekend 2023 QB Arch Manning was on campus for a recruiting visit and to watch his uncle Eli have his #10 jersey retired. But Williams, whose stepfather Murphy Holloway played basketball at Ole Miss, did not make the trip.
Lou Bezjak of The State covered Williams and Dutch Fork Friday night as they defeated Lexington. Williams caught 10 passes for 169 yards. He talked with Williams after the game and reported Williams had decided not to go to Ole Miss this weekend. Bezjak later tweeted that Williams might reschedule the visit for the Texas A&M game October 13th.
Williams’s mother, Courtney Holloway, confirmed the change in plans Saturday afternoon, and she also updated what else is in the works for visits.
“We are still planning on visiting Ole Miss,” Ms. Holloway said. “We’re hoping for an upcoming night game given our Friday games will run until the December 4th weekend. Either A&M, Liberty or Vandy game for them. Coach (Derrick) Nix is working on it. Auburn is still a go (for November 27th. He still may revisit Georgia. Texas is now in the mix (offered on Thursday). We will talk with their coaching staff this week. And Clemson would likely get an official if they offer.”
Williams has had a top six of USC, Ole Miss, Georgia, Auburn, Notre Dame and Florida State. He took an official visit to USC in September and could return for another game this season.
“Possibly,” Ms. Holloway said. “It’s so close, so we may have a window of opportunity to go at the last minute. Antonio feels like he knows that staff well and he’s been going to Carolina games for a long time. They’ve gone a great job thus far.”
The regular season is over for Holloway. He had 1653 all-purpose yards. He had 48 catches with 11 touchdowns in 8 games.
