WR D'haquille Williams selects Auburn over LSU

The Auburn Tigers added an incredible weapon to their recruiting class this weekend when five-star wide receiver D’haquille Williams announced his commitment to the school on Sunday. Williams, at 6-foot-3 and 213 pounds, is the top ranked junior college player in the country.

(Those interested in some of his amazing highlights can check out this YouTube video.)

Williams said that the atmosphere is what ultimately influenced his decision to pick Auburn (Williams was at one point committed to LSU):

Coming in on Friday, being around Coach Craig — felt like he was there for me — on and off the field. Just feeling the vibe he offered … Coach [Gus] Malzahn and Coach [Rhett] Lashlee, letting me know they need me. When I’m hearing that, that’s telling me they care for me. Not too many people I trust, but trust in them — coming here and feeling at home, it’s big for me.

 

Everybody just smiled and walked around, just giving me big ups just for being on campus. Just being here, it just felt like home. And not many places feel like home for me (Auburn Undercover/247 Sports).

Williams is the thirteenth player to commit to Auburn in the 2014 class.
