Speedy DB Hoping To Impress On Camp Circuit

Defensive back prospect Latarrence Williams talks about his camp experience at Auburn and recruiting.

Moss Point, Miss.--There were dozens of outstanding prospects at Auburn's recent Senior Camp. One of the players hoping to make a name for himself is speedy defensive back Latarrence Williams and he succeeded.

One of the more impressive campers in the one-on-one drills as a cornerback, he says the one-day event was a good experience for him.

"I went to Auburn and had a good time," Williams tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "I just did what I needed to do. Hopefully, I will get something in the mail from them. Overall it was a good camp."

Checking in at 5-9, 155, Williams ran a 4.5 second 40-yard dash at Auburn, but says he has run as fast as a 4.4. With a short shuttle time of 4.35 seconds and a vertical leap of 30 inches, Williams is an explosive player that is already getting interest from several colleges.

"I'm hearing from Arkansas State, Southern Miss and Louisiana Tech at the moment," Williams said. "My only offer right now is from Southern Miss."

Starting for the first time last season at cornerback and wide receiver, Williams had a solid season for the Tigers in 2009. He says the experience he gained at Auburn and several more camps has him excited about the possibilities for his senior season.

In the spring Moss Point traveled to Mobile and faced off against Blount and Williamson in a jamboree game. Williams was one of the bright spots in the spring for Moss Point and should be a focal point for his team in the fall.
