Texas A&M Wide Receiver Transfer Interested in Louisville?
Wide receiver JaQuay Williams is transferring from Texas A&M after one season at the school, and Louisville could potentially be a landing spot for him. He is listed at 6’3 and 214 lbs from Tyrone, Georgia.
According to this article by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, his uncle said “It was the distance, and standard things that college kids go through. Things just didn’t work out, and that happens sometimes. It’s no big deal. There’s no issues or anything like that. He left Texas A&M on good terms and he’s looking forward to moving ahead. He’s just looking for a place to fit in.”
So you would think that maybe he would transfer to a school like Georgia, Auburn, South Carolina, Tennessee, or other big-time programs that had offered him a scholarship coming out of high school. The only thing about that is, there is the possibility that he would have to sit out for two seasons if he transfers to another SEC school. Plus there is this tweet from earlier from Michael Carvell, who covers college football recruiting in the southeast for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
Several ppl told me today to not be surprised if Shaq Wiggins & JaQuay Williams both show up at Louisville—

This past season for Texas A&M, Williams caught 4 passes for 71 yards in 10 games played. Coming out of high school, he was the top rated wide receiver in Georgia and was a 4-star prospect. He signed with Auburn but did not qualify, so he went to Fork Union Military Academy before ending up at Texas A&M.
He would have to sit out the 2014 season, but would have 3 years of eligibility remaining.
