Live Evaluation: Jaquay Williams

Jaquay Williams was the highest rated senior prospect on the field Friday night when Troup County played Sandy Creek. Scout watched him closely and you get his Scouting Report here.

Prospect: Jaquay Williams
Location: Tyrone, Ga.
High School: Sandy Creek
Position: Wide Receiver
Size: 6-2/205
Class: 2012
Ranking: No. 19 WR and no. 122 overall prospect in the country.
Recruiting Notes: Committed to Auburn, but plans to take five official visits. Georgia recently offered, but the home-state school may be a little late.

Live Evaluation: I started watching Williams when he was a freshman and he has steadily progressed over the years. He has very good size at over 200 pounds now with long arms and his athleticism has always been recognizable.

What he has really improved on over the past year is his consistency and his route running ability. He really is catching the ball better now with his hands away from his body and he is looking it into his hands very well. His route running still needs improvement, but he understands routes better now. He still needs to sink his hips going in and coming out of his breaks, but the defensive backs now do not know what he is running as soon as he starts his route.

He has really matured overall as a wide receiver. He is blocking better, he is catching the ball better, and he is just starting to show what he could truly be like in the future.

Williams is a very talented wide receiver with great body control, the ability to make quick adjustments on the ball, and the potential to be a big-time player in college. He is having a big senior year on the field, but his best football is ahead of him. He will continue to improve his routes, to use his hands better off the ball, and to get better separation down the field.

He is a rare receiver at his size that can make plays in space or down the field.
