Williams Excited About Upcoming Auburn Visit

Auburn commitment Jaquay Williams discusses the Semper Fidelis game, his Auburn visit, coaches and more.

Sandy Creek, Ga.—For Auburn wide receiver commitment Jaquay Williams his experience at the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl in Arizona was a mix of the good and the bad.

While he caught a 47-yard touchdown pass and was one of the top receivers in attendance he said things weren't always great, but he enjoyed the chance to shine as a player.

"Overall it was a very good experience," Williams said. "There were some good and bad things about it. I just didn't like the way they gave the West Coast players more publicity and more hype to them. They hyped them more than the East Coast players.

"I just tried to make a play," he said of his touchdown catch in the game. "It was another chance for me to go out there and show what I can do."

A frequent visitor to Auburn for much of the last 12 months, Williams has seen just about everything the Tigers have to offer as a football program and a university. Even with that knowledge he said he's looking forward to his upcoming official visit this weekend because it's another chance to bond with his future coaches and teammates.

"I'm really excited about it," Williams said. "I'm just looking forward to doing the same things I always do at Auburn, just be around family and have fun."

One of the things many believe is impacting Auburn's recruiting at the moment is that Gus Malzahn left to be the head coach at Arkansas State and the Tigers are still searching for his replacement. Williams said that doesn't impact him any at all and he's had conversations with Auburn wide receiver coach Trooper Taylor that lead him to believe Auburn is close to naming a replacement.

"Not much really," Williams said about the impact it's had on him. "He hasn't told me yet because he's not allowed to put it out there. He has a pretty good idea who it's going to be. It's exciting for me to have something new, but they haven't said what style of offense it's going to be."

With schools all over the country still trying to recruit and get Williams to take visits he said he remains firmly committed to Coach Gene Chizik's program, but hasn't decided yet if he'll take any more visits.

"I don't know yet," Williams said. "I'm still solidly committed to Auburn. I'm real solid, but the people I live with want me to take all my visits to make sure."
