4-Star Lineman Loves Road Trip to AU

Offensive tackle Jauan Williams checked out the Tigers and Tide over the weekend.

Washington, D.C.--Four star offensive line prospect Jauan Williams spent the weekend in SEC territory, visiting the Auburn Tigers on Sunday afternoon after checking out the Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday in Tuscaloosa.

“I had a great visit to Auburn,” Williams told Inside the Auburn Tigers. “I loved the place. It is a great hometown. I love all of the coaches. Auburn feels like home and it could be a place I choose when it comes to signing day.”

Asked what he is looking for in his college choice, the six-foot-six, 270-pound class of 2016 prospect said, “I am looking for a great atmosphere--a place where people are cheerful and helpful. I like a place where people welcome you into a new environment.

“I am looking for a hard-working place and a place that feels like family,” he added.

Commenting on what he is intent on improving for his senior season of football, the only sport he plays, Williams said, “I am working on staying low and keeping my hands inside. I am working on keeping a square base by keeping my shoulders square.

“I am working on my strength and making sure I keep my weight up,” said Williams, who is ranked as the No. 17 offensive tackle prospect in the 2016 class by Scout.com.

Commenting on his first stop for the weekend in Tuscaloosa, he said, “It was also a great visit. I loved every second of it. I also felt home there and I liked the coaching staff there, too. That is also a place I could see myself picking on signing day.”

The four-star recruit is shown in action as a junior. He picked up an early scholarship offer from the Tigers.

Williams noted that he is in no hurry to make a college choice. “My top 10 is coming out in November,” he said.

Asked if there was one game that he was most proud of during his junior season, the lineman said, “It was probably against McNamara. I was sick that game with the flu, but I was throwing people all around and driving them, acting like my normal self. I played with my heart that game even though I?threw up at halftime.”
