Wenonah defensive lineman Quinnen Williams is set to make his second commitment June 30.
The 6-foot-4, 265-pounder was committed to Auburn from Jan. 16 until June 5. The change of heart came days after he visited Tuscaloosa for a camp, and he hasn’t taken any college visits since.
“When I committed to Auburn I kind of shut down from everyone to clear my mind and make sure I was doing the right thing,” he told AL.com Wednesday night.
Williams is now down to three finalists — Alabama, Auburn and Mississippi State — and his mind is already made up.
“I talked it over with my father and I kind of made my choice already,” he said. “He’s OK with my decision. We’ve talked about it and think it’s the best time to do it.”
Williams, a three-star prospect and the No. 33 defensive tackle in the 247Sports Composite, hears from the Crimson Tide more than any other program. Check out what he had to say about each finalist below:
• ALABAMA: “They have always been a top choice of mine. I like their tradition and winning ways. They’re always in the running to compete for a championship. Their athletic department is second to none and they have a great academic program as far as my major (education) goes. I’ve developed a great relationship with the coaches — Coach (Mario) Crisobal, Coach (Bo) Davis and Nick Saban.”
• AUBURN: I have a great relationship with Coach (Rodney) Garner and Coach (Will) Muschamp and the whole coaching staff. I like Auburn and the wholesome family atmosphere.”
• MISSISSIPPI STATE: “Of course I have ties with Mississippi State with De’Runnya Wilson, my teammate when I was a freshman. We keep in contact a lot, he’s been talking to me. I visited the campus and went to couple games, I actually went to the Egg Bowl last year.”
