Decision soon for WR Ja'Quay Williams
By Kipp Adams
Wide receiver Ja'Quay Williams (Tyrone, Ga./Fork Union Military Academy) might have decommitted from Auburn last week, but the 6-foot-3, 195-pound prospect appears to still have plans to play in the SEC. After taking official visits to Texas A&M and Georgia the last two weekends, Williams will check out South Carolina this weekend, with a decision coming immediately following his trip.
"I'm going on an official to South Carolina now and committing Sunday," Williams said.
South Carolina has come on late for Williams, beating out Mississippi State, Miami and Michigan for the chance to get the talented wideout on campus. A four-star receiver out of Tyrone (Ga.) Sandy Creek, Williams is close friends with ESPN 150 cornerback Shaq Wiggins (Tyrone, Ga./Sandy Creek), another prospect the Gamecocks are making a move to get. The two are contemplating signing with the same program.
“I have been thinking about South Carolina lately,” Wiggins told DawgNation this week. “One thing I can say is that wherever I go, Ja’Quay [Williams] is going. We have been talking about Texas A&M, too. Johnny Manziel needs to get the Heisman; I don’t care what anybody says.”
While Wiggins' recruitment could last until signing day, Williams likely will make his decision within the next couple of weeks. He will enroll at the school of his choice in January.
