4-Star Wide Receiver Discusses Big Cat Visit

Sandy Creek High standout JaQuay Williams talks about his visit to Auburn's Big Cat Weekend.

Tyrone, Ga.--Although he had to leave early because of other obligations, four-star wide receiver prospect Jaquay Williams labeled his trip to Auburn for the Big Cat Weekend as "great."

"I liked the visit and the way people treated me at Auburn," he told Inside the Auburn Tigers. "At Auburn it is all about family and I like that."

Williams said he enjoyed talking to wide receivers coach Trooper Taylor and head coach Gene Chizik. "They told me that they wanted to make me into a better man who becomes a better father," he said. "We didn't talk anything about football."

Ranked the No. 13 wide receiver prospect in the country by Scout.com, earlier in the week he said that he would be ready to announce his college choice by this weekend, but noted on Saturday he isn't ready to do that yet and didn't give a time frame for when he would announce a decision.

Asked what colleges he is considering, the 6-4, 195-pound rising senior said, "Auburn, Ohio State, LSU, Miami, Alabama, Florida and Tennessee."

Commenting on what he did on Saturday, he said, "We ate and played games that were a lot of fun. I actually won the watermelon eating contest. I beat big Gabe (incoming Auburn freshman Gabe Wright) in the contest. It was a lot of fun."

Williams said he knew Wright from playing against the former Carver of Columbus, Ga., star in high school. He also knows incoming Auburn freshman Quan Bray, who is from Troup County High in LaGrange.

"Quan and I grew up together," he pointed out, noting it is good to have other players he knows to talk to him about the Auburn program.

Williams noted that he left early because he had another obligation back home and then was heading for a family event in Pennsylvania.

The Sandy Creek High School player was a standout at the Atlanta MVP Camp earlier this year. He is expected to be one of the top high school seniors in the South this fall. "My goal for my senior year is to break some records," he said.
