Join us here on SEC Country for a daily recap of the latest Florida recruiting news, tales from the trail and perspective on what it all means for the Gators.
Jalynn Williams officially visits Auburn
Another SEC program hosted a Florida commit on campus last weekend.
Jalynn Williams, a 3-star athlete from St. Petersburg, Fla., took a surprise official visit to Auburn and was in attendance for the Tigers’ 40-17 win over No. 1 Georgia.
SEC Country’s Benjamin Wolk first reported the news.
Williams attended the last two Florida games against LSU and Texas A&M, but is now considering his options with the coaching changes at UF. Williams wanted to visit other schools even prior to Jim McElwain’s departure.
Williams committed to Florida in January as an athlete, but is expected to start out at receiver. Auburn is recruiting him as a cornerback and still has needs at the position, according to Wolk.
The Tigers will be a team to monitor with Williams moving forward, but Wolk reported that Auburn hasn’t pulled the trigger on him yet.
“Probably the big takeaway from Williams’ visit, however, is he left without receiving an offer. That’s usually an indication of what a program thinks. … I wouldn’t completely remove Williams from the cornerback board, but there isn’t much substance to it at this time. With that said, it’s clear Auburn will try to poach players from Florida’s class and Tennessee’s class, if possible.”
