Tall Tight End Plans Official Visit To Auburn

This Florida prep standout is strongly considering Auburn.

Miami, Fla.--With the Tigers graduating Lorenzo Diamond and the possibility that junior Robert Johnson may go pro, a second tight end commitment might be something Auburn could use in its 2003 football signee class.

Kenny Williams, a 6-7, 225-pound two-sport star from American High School, says that Auburn is his favorite and adds that he plans to be on the AU campus for an official visit on Jan. 17th.

A second team All-Dade selection as a senior for an 8-3 team, Williams is a three-year starter in football and basketball. He is currently busy with basketball and is averaging 15.1 points per game. Williams says he caught around 20 passes as a senior for 600 yards for a team that was ground-oriented.

Williams visited Rutgers prior to Christmas and is going to Missouri on Jan. 10th, but he says that Auburn is his leader. "I like Auburn the most and they are recruiting me for both football and basketball," he tells Inside the Auburn Tigers. "I like the way they throw the football to the tight end. I have watched them a lot on TV and I have noticed that. The tight end is very important in their offensive philosophy."

Williams says he runs a 4.6 40 and he considers himself a good blocker. In basketball, he calls his style of play "aggressive." He says his ability to make tough catches is his best asset in football. Eddie Gran, who recruits south Florida for the Tigers, has been by to see him. He adds that Gran has made it clear there is a good opportunity for tight ends at Auburn and it is also clear that Williams is very interested in the Tigers.
