Tennessee is among the teams to beat for one of its top remaining in-state targets in the 2019 class.

Four-star senior defensive lineman Kristian Williams of Southwind High School in Memphis, Tenn., announced his top six college choices Saturday night on his Twitter account, and the Vols were included on his current list of favorites.

Memphis, LSU, Indiana, Missouri and Minnesota joined Tennessee among the top contenders for the 6-foot-2, 272-pound Williams, who wrote in a note posted on his Twitter account that he "would like to focus on these 6 schools" but added that his "recruitment is still open."

Williams, who now has received at least nine scholarship offers, picked up his first offer in April 2017 from former Vols coach Butch Jones' staff, and he visited Tennessee just 10 days later to attend its spring-ending Orange and White Game.

In June, he returned to Knoxville for the first time since that visit to take his first look at Tennessee under first-year coach Jeremy Pruitt's staff. Williams was in attendance for one of the Vols' camps, but a pulled hamstring prevented him from working out with Tennessee's coaches while he was there.

After the visit, Williams told GoVols247 that he felt "at home" during his latest visit with the Vols.

“It was great,” he said at the time. “As usual, I liked the facilities and I liked the new coaching staff, how they bring a friendly vibe to where they know what I’m capable of doing.

“They know what type of person I am, because they’ve been through what I’ve been through before. They say that I’ll be a perfect fit for the defensive front. They just keep it real with me at all times, and that’s what I really like about the coaching staff.

“It was just a feeling of being at home, really.”

Williams also said in June that he's high on Tennessee for multiple reasons, and he already was planning to return there this season for one of the Vols’ home games.

“The one thing I’d probably say I like the most is the atmosphere,” he said at the time. “Everybody around and everybody in Tennessee as a whole, they’ll be rooting for Tennessee. And they put their trust in the coaching staff and believe they can turn the program back around.”

He said in June that he planned to announce his college decision "maybe this fall."

Williams is ranked the No. 347 overall prospect and No. 22 defensive tackle in the industry-generated 247Sports Composite for the 2019 class. He's also ranked by 247Sports as the No. 199 overall prospect and No. 11 defensive tackle in the 2019 class and the No. 6 senior from the state of Tennessee.

He has yet to receive his first prediction on the 247Sports Crystal Ball.
