Texas Rangers draft Galveston Ball outfielder Nick Williams

Posted: Updated:

The Texans Rangers used their second pick in the second round (no. 93 overall) of the MLB First-Year Players Draft on Galveston Ball outfielder Nick Williams

Prior to the draft  Williams was considered the top high school player in the Houston area and he is the first to be drafted.

"It's amazing," Williams said in an interview with FOX 26 Sports. "I'm very honored."

Williams thought the Rangers might take him in the draft.

"I had a good feeling, like a strong feeling that they were," Williams said.

"It's very exciting. Not that many players get the chance to do this and get drafted.

Williams has signed to play college baseball at Texas A&M.

So he will have a decision to make.

"It's a decision I'm going to talk over with my family and both teams," Williams said.

Williams father is thrilled for his son.

"It means a great deal," Billy Williams said. "The Rangers are doing very well. They are a great organization.

"Oh boy Nolan Ryan. I can't ask for much more."

Dad understands his son has a big decision to make, play college baseball for the Aggie's or turn pro with the Rangers.

"It's kind of rough to even describe," Billy Williams said. "It's great. He's in a good position to be in.

"Either one will be a great decision."
