One day after JaQuay Williams returned from his official visit to UGA, Auburn coach Gene Chizik was waiting for him at school.
Chizik spent around 90 minutes on Monday afternoon at Sandy Creek High School talking to Williams, who is ranked as the state’s No. 1 prospect at WR. Later on Monday night, Chizik was scheduled to make an in-home visit with Williams.
It was ideal timing by Chizik, with rumors swirling about Williams switching his longtime Auburn commitment to UGA after visiting with the Bulldogs this past weekend.
“I think JaQuay’s visit to Georgia went really well,” Sandy Creek coach Chip Walker told the AJC. “But I don’t think he’s changed his mind about Auburn or flipped.
“He said he a good time at Georgia while he was there. I think the coaches at Georgia did a good job at showing what they had to offer. I think he enjoyed the trip. I don’t know for sure in terms of what JaQuay is going to do in the end but he has been going to Auburn for a long time. It may take more than a weekend trip to get him to turn. I don’t know. That’s JaQuay’s decision. But I do think Georgia did a good job on the visit.”
Chizik wanted face time with Williams to make it clear where he stands with Auburn. The 6-foot-3, 200-pounder has been committed to Auburn since last summer but has been listening to UGA since getting a later offer in November.
“JaQuay is one of their main targets and they let him know it,” Walker said. “Coach Chizik wanted to make sure that that they’ve secured JaQuay, and I think everything seems to good with that.”
However, UGA hasn’t given up on flipping Williams. “Georgia is coming for an in-home visit later this week at some point, that’s what JaQuay told me,” Williams said. “I think they’re going to try to make it hard for JaQuay. They’re going to push for him until the very end. That’s just how recruiting works.”
Note: JaQuay is still unlikely to make an official visit to Florida this weekend, according to Walker.
