“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.
