One of UGA’s top remaining targets, WR Ja’Quay Williams, de-committed from Auburn on Sunday night, his legal guardian told the AJC.
The 6-foot-3, 200-pounder from Sandy Creek High School took an official visit to UGA this weekend.
“Texas A&M, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi State are on the current list,” said Kevin Ofchus, his uncle and legal guardian. “And Auburn is still in the mix.”
“Like a lot of kids, we’re just waiting to see how things pan out with which specific coach it is (hired at Auburn). Until things get figured out over there, Ja’Quay needs to do his due diligence and research where he wants to go.”
Last February, Williams signed with Auburn after almost switching to UGA at the last minute.
However, Williams became a free agent again this year after not meeting NCAA academic requirements. He is spending this fall at Virginia’s Fork Union Prep School. Williams is expected to satisfy his academics by December, and enroll at a four-year school in January.
UGA is now considered the school to beat to Williams, who has also taken an official visit to Texas A&M.
How was the visit to UGA? “He had a good time,” Ofchus said. “Things went well. He went to the game, and he had good conversations with the coaches.”
Williams was ranked as the state’s No. 1 WR prospect last year, and is considered better than any of this year’s Georgia crop of wide receivers.
Williams will reach his college decision before Christmas.
