Sugar Land CB Zoey Williams Decommits from UTEP, Chooses New Mexico

Sugar Land Dulles defensive back Zoey Williams, one of the three highest rated high school prospects left in UTEP's 2011 recruiting class, has decommitted from UTEP in favor of the New Mexico Lobos.  Williams visited with UNM last weekend and tonight word is out that he won't sign with UTEP tomorrow.

UTEP, of course, has already lost the commitments from stud QB/ATH Jonovan Griffin, Texas Top 100 prospect Brandon Durant, and wide receiver Lovett Gibson.  The first two chose Big 12 programs, Oklahoma State and Missouri respectively, but Gibson chose C-USA West rival Rice over UTEP.  Now, the Miners have lost a talented commit to lowly New Mexico.   Yes, that New Mexico.  The Lobos are just 2-22 during Mike Locksley's first two seasons at UNM.

This is horrible news for UTEP as Williams was the Miners highest ranked defensive back prospect and one of the 2-3 highest regarded members of the 2011 class.  Williams was UTEP's only recruit from the Houston area to be named a "Houston Top 100" player by the Houston Chronicle.  He had the following ratings from the national recruiting services:

- ESPN:  3*/ 76 rating, #52 CB Prospect
- Rivals: 3*/ 5.5 rating
- Scout: 3*/ #56 CB Prospect
