‘Auburn is going to be Auburn’

Auburn will have to fight off Georgia, Texas A&M and Oklahoma State to re-sign JaQuay Williams.

Williams signed with Auburn last Feb.

But one factor the Tigers won’t have to worry about according to the 4-star wide receiver from Fork Union (Va.) Military Academy is the fate of its current coaching staff.

“That’s not going to be an issue at all,” Williams said. “Auburn is going to be Auburn with or without their coaching staff. They’re still going to be a great football program.”

Williams, 6-foot-4 and 204 pounds, signed with Auburn out of Sandy Creek High School in Tyrone, Ga., last February but failed to qualify and spent this fall at Fork Union.

Sunday night, Williams said he’s, “still committed as of now,” but visiting other schools. He spent last weekend at Texas A&M and plans to be at Georgia next weekend.

“It actually went great,” said Williams of his trip to College Station. “They showed me around and stuff. The coaches showed a lot of love. It was the loudest stadium I’ve been to. That Johnny Football is a great player. He’s real tough. I liked that.”

Georgia was Williams’ second choice the first time around and he’s remained in touch with the Bulldog coaches this fall.

“I know a good bit of guys on the Georgia team. I’m going to look at the offense and chill and have a good time. It’s just going to be a regular visit,” he said.

Williams may also officially visit Oklahoma State and return to Auburn. He wants to have a final decision before Dec. 14.
