Williams makes call for Texas A&M
By Kipp Adams and Sam Khan Jr.
Texas A&M continues to pick up commitments on the heels of its 10-2 inaugural Southeastern Conference campaign, and the latest comes from Fork Union (Va.) Military Academy receiver Ja'Quay Williams.
Ja'Quay Williams, once committed to Auburn, also considered in-state power Georgia, as well as South Carolina.
"After looking at everything and taking time to evaluate for now and into the future, Coach [Kevin] Sumlin, his staff, and the program is where I need to be and where I am now committed, 110 percent," Williams said. "I indicated so tonight!
"I have officially committed to Texas A&M."
Williams, a 6-foot-3, 195-pound four-star prospect from Tyrone, Ga., was originally an Auburn commitment but reopened his recruitment after the firing of Auburn coach Gene Chizik.
Williams took an official visit to Texas A&M on the weekend of Nov. 16, when the Aggies hosted Sam Houston State. He chose Texas A&M over his other top suitors at the moment: Georgia and South Carolina. He returned today from South Carolina and announced his decision tonight. Williams also held offers from Florida, Mississippi State, Oklahoma, Tennessee and USC.
Williams was one of the top receivers in the 2012 class coming out of high school. He originally signed with Auburn but went the prep school route, enrolling at Fork Union in an effort to become eligible in January.
Williams is the 32nd commitment in Texas A&M's 2013 class and will be a midterm enrollee, becoming the eighth Texas A&M commit with that distinction.
