Auburn Signs Nation’s No.1 JUCO Player

“He’s a dynamic player who can run, catch, do all the things it takes to be a great wide receiver.”That’s the way Auburn Coach Gus Malzahn described D’haquille Williams, the nation’s No.1 overall junior college prospect who signed with Auburn today.

The Tigers also signed three star-center Xavier Dampeer from Copiah-Lincoln Community College in Wesson, Mississippi, four star Defensive Tackle DaVonte Lambert from Georgia Military College, and Prattville native Derrick Moncrief who has been playing safety for Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College.

Montcrief is rated by 24/7 Sports as the No.1 junior college safety in the nation. His coach says the 6’ 3” 226 pounder can play all over the field and predicts that, “He’ll be an impact player for Auburn.” 

Williams is from La Place, La and has been recruited hard by Les Miles and LSU. However, the two-time JUCO All-American stuck with his commitment and signed with Auburn this morning. He caught 118 passes for 2,018 yards and 16 touchdowns at Gulf Coast.

Wednesday is the first day junior college transfers could sign with a college and there are still several players on the board that the Tigers are interested in signing. However, JUCO transfers have till January 15th to ink a National Letter of Intent.

    I shake my head in amazement every time I read stuff like this.

    Gus NEVER takes a day off. He must diagram plays in his sleep. Just when I think he’s going to take a breath, he has a surprise waiting for us (and the rest of the league).

    Told you auburn scored more than a TD at the UGA game! We made out big today. AU is headed in right direction.

    Gus is building a championship program that will sustain success for years.

    I’m barning hard, but we will be on top for some time and a dynasty will be built.

    6’3? When’s the last time we had a back that tall? Stephen Davis? Brandon Jacobs? Not either of them?

      …..Davis was only 6′ 0. But he was 235, which is big to this day. Jacobs was 6′ 4″, 264 pounds, the heaviest tailback Auburn has ever had.

        Could hardly hang onto a football though…

          Not very good at picking up blocks in pass protection.

            I really hope you guys aren’t referring to Brandon Jacobs because neither statement is fair at all about Jacobs. Tuberville screwed up with that kid and I’ll never think otherwise. Jacobs never had a chance to establish any bad or good habits at Auburn because the genius OC thought it was wise at the time to move him over to linebacker.

            I can understand Ronnie Brown and Carnell Williams being placed on a depth chart before Jacobs. However, Tre Smith should never have been placed ahead of Jacobs. That was ridiculous and I’ll never understand it. In 2003, we had quite possibly the most loaded tailback position we have ever had with those three. Yet, one of the three barely saw the field. I always think what might have been with Jacobs and it still hurts to this day.
