Talented Prospect Playing The Waiting Game

This versatile player for one of the top programs in Georgia is waiting to hear from Auburn before making a decision.

Buford, Ga.--One of the most versatile athletes the Auburn Tigers are recruiting this season took an official visit to the Plains this weekend and says that he had a great time getting a feel for the college atmosphere in Auburn.

"It was a good visit," 6-3, 220 Shun Williams tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "I really liked it at Auburn and I felt like I kind of fit in there as far as what they try to do defensively. They didn't offer me, but they said they were going to call me tonight. I think they are waiting on some of the other guys and see what happens with them. They said they will definitely know by Monday evening."

Hosted by linebacker Antarrious Williams, he says that he had a great time hanging out with current Auburn Tigers Travis Williams, Doug Langenfeld and Jason Campbell. A fantastic athlete that could play either defensive end or tight end, Williams is being recruited by the Tigers as a defensive end.

"I got along great with A.T.," Williams says. "He's from Georgia and we talked about a lot of stuff. He knows a lot of guys from Buford like P.K. (P.K. Sam). We basically just talked about everything going on at Auburn and how they need some defensive ends and linebackers. He just gave me advice on what I need to do."

While there was the normal big eating and late nights associated with an official visit, those aren't the things that captured the attention of Williams. He says getting to see how a true college town is on a weekend was the highlight of the trip for him.

"That's the first real college town that I've visited because Kentucky and UAB are actually in cities," Williams says. "It was pretty obvious that they care about their school and have a ton of school spirit. Everybody was so nice and everybody was wearing orange and blue. That really surprised me."

Now Williams can only sit and wait until Auburn decides what they are going to do. Waiting on several players, the Tigers will make a decision before Monday night and it's a decision that will affect what Williams does for the next four or five years.

"It's either Kentucky, UAB or Georgia Southern if I don't hear from Auburn," Williams says. "At Kentucky I might redshirt, but at UAB and Georgia Southern I can challenge right away for a starting job. I'm pretty sure I'll have my mind made up by Monday night or early Tuesday morning."
