One of college football's top offensive linemen is moving on to the next level. Texas OT Connor Williams, a junior, announced on Monday that he intends to apply for early eligibility into the 2018 NFL Draft. He also plans to skip the Longhorns' bowl game. "My family and I have decided it is my best interest to forgo the bowl game and my senior season to begin preparing for my professional football career," Williams stated in a press release from the school. "One of the reasons I worked so hard to come back from my injury was to help the team reach its goal of playing in a bowl game, and I'm proud we were able to accomplish that. "I will continue to support my teammates in their efforts to finish the season strong and in the continuing growth that is happening with Texas football."
