In a release from the University of Wyoming, head coach Craig Bohl was very complimentary of the Cowboys’ newest player.

"We are excited that Levi (Williams) is on our campus starting this semester. He was part of an excellent high school program, and I've known his high school coach for many years. He played in a very competitive league. Levi has a strong arm and good athleticism. I think he has an excellent value system to be able to come in and be the type of quarterback we are looking for here at Wyoming."
