Tight End Says He Will Be An Auburn Tiger

A big and talented tight end says he will play for Auburn.

Miami, Fla.--Auburn has picked up a verbal commitment from talented tight end Kenny Williams, who took an official visit to Auburn over the weekend.

"I have committed to Auburn," he told Inside the Auburn Tigers. "I had a great visit to Auburn this weekend. I like the college. I like the school spirit. I like the academic program. Also, the opportunity for tight ends makes me want to come there even more."

The 6-7, 228-pounder from American High School picked the Tigers over Rutgers, Missouri, Ohio State, Central Florida and others.

Williams, who is also an outstanding basketball player, says he plans to major in business administration at Auburn. He was a second team All-Dade pick as a tight end after having 600 receiving yards as a senior for a ground-oriented team. He is also one of the top high school basketball players in the Miami area and is averaging 15.1 points per game in that sport.

Williams says he runs a 4.6 40-yard dash 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.

The tight end is Auburn's 14th public verbal commitment. The last one came from quarterback Kelcy McKissic-Luke from Central High in Phenix City.
