Big, Talented Athlete Enjoys Visit to See Tigers

This two-way performer took an official football recruiting trip to Auburn over the weekend.

Sebastian, Fla.--Three sport standout Kevin Williams took an official visit to Auburn over the weekend and the big athlete says he is very interested in the Tigers.

Standing six-foot-seven and weighing 272 pounds, Williams was listed as a University of Miami commitment in December. "I am supposed to go to Miami this weekend, but I might not go," he says. "I haven't decided yet."

A relative newcomer to the game of football, he has played the sport just two seasons. He is also a standout in basketball (a four-year starter who averages 15 points per game) and track and field as a shot putter and discus thrower. Named the most valuable defensive lineman at a summer football camp at the University of Miami last year, Williams says football is the sport of his future as a collegian.

With speed in the 4.9 range, he could play defensive end, offensive tackle or tight end at the collegiate level. He played on both the defensive and offensive fronts at Sebastian River High School.

Commenting on his Auburn visit, Williams said, "I had a lot of fun. The people are nice and so are the coaches. Jason Campbell was my player host. We went and visited the stadium and Jason took me to a couple of the other players' houses. We played video games and stuff like that."

Campbell will be a redshirt junior quarterback for the Tigers, who are expected to field a strong 2003 football team after winning nine games in 2002 and finishing with a Capital One Bowl victory over Penn State.
