D’haquille Williams is one of the most talented receivers in the country and the No. 1 junior college player in the nation may have rekindled interest the LSU Tigers who he was previously committed to earlier this spring before decommitting in favor of the Auburn Tigers.
According to Shea Dixon at Geux247, “Williams spoke with both LSU recruiting coordinator Frank Wilson and wide receivers coach Adam Henry on Monday. Williams said it was a great conversation and he’s excited about the opportunity to look into staying home and going to LSU.”
The same reasons that made Williams commit to LSU in the first place on May 10 are creeping back to the forefront it would appear for the 6-3, 213-pound receiver at Mississippi Gulf Coast and the big news is he has plans to take a visit for the LSU game next Saturday when they host Texas A&M.
Dixon says, “From talking with Williams, I can assure you that he’s seriously entertaining the idea of moving back into the LSU corner. Next weekend’s visit will go a long way with his stance, in my opinion.”
Could the lack of a passing game at Auburn be one reason for Williams to look to stay home?Auburn boasts a dominant rushing attack, but their passing game leaves a lot to be desired in Nick Marshall’s first season at quarterback. The Tigers own the No. 108 passing offense at 173.3 yards per game and their leading receiver, Sammie Coates, has only 26 receptions.
Williams, a native of Reserve, La and East St. John high school would assuredly be a starter at LSU next season with Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham, Jr. likely to declare for the NFL draft where they could both be top-45 picks and thrive in Cam Cameron’s offense.
Under the direction of Cameron, LSU has the No. 30 passing offense averaging 275.6 yards per game and both Landry and Beckham are going to fly past the 1,000-yard mark and have more than 60 receptions and double-digit touchdowns in all likelihood.
LSU will be breaking in a new starter in either Anthony Jennings or true freshman Brandon Harris, but the success of Landry and Beckham has to have Williams thinking he can replicate if not improve on the statistical production of that dynamic duo.
Stay tuned on the Williams front as his visit next week could go a long way toward a possible flip back to LSU.
