Williams awed by Kyle Field crowd

When you're a man in demand like Spring Dekaney running back Trey Williams, you can pretty much go to whatever college football game you want to. So he has: a few weeks ago, he went to Baton Rouge to see LSU face off with defending national champion Alabama; this weekend, he was in College Station to see the now-No. 17 Texas Aggies take on the Nebraska Cornhuskers.

Even though LSU is known for having a tremendous gameday atmosphere, the highly-touted 2012 recruit said it paled in comparison to the fury of Texas A&M's 12th Man.

"That was the best game I have ever been to. The best ever," he said.

What about Tiger Stadium?

"Oh, no," he said. "(Kyle Field) was the best."

Williams said the noise of the Aggie student section and the effect it had on Nebraska during the 9-6 A&M win definitely caught his attention.

"Wow. That's all I can say," he said with a laugh.

Before the game, Williams said he was curious to see how the Aggies would use the running game, and how they would utilize Cyrus Gray in particular. After Gray's 202 total yards of offense, including 140 on the ground against Nebraska's vaunted Blackshirts, he was happy with what he saw.

"I liked it. It was a mixture of everything they did," he said. "But if you get me the ball 25 times, I'm going to find a way to score."

After the game, Williams said he had a chance to talk to most of the Aggie coaching staff.

"They were pumped. They were loving it," he said. "They were glad I was there and saw it. It was the best."

The Aggies remain at the top of Williams' list, with LSU and Auburn the primary competition at the moment.
