Tigers land huge prize

D'haquille Williams is headed back to Louisiana

Tiger fans have been anxiously waiting for LSU to make a strong move on the nation’s No. 1 junior college wide receiver D’haquille Williams and on Friday evening they got their wish in more ways than one.

Williams, a 6-foot-3, 213-pounder out of Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, had an extensive conversation with LSU running backs coach/recruiting coordinator Frank Wilson and the end result was the five-star wide out giving Wilson and Les Miles his verbal commitment.

In Williams, who is slated to enroll at LSU in January, the Tigers are getting a big, physical receiver with a great set of hands. One veteran talent evaluator, after reviewing Williams’ film, felt he could be the best receiver prospect he’s ever seen.

As a redshirt freshman, Williams caught 67 passes for 1,295 yards and 18 touchdowns for Mississippi Gulf Coast, which is pretty close to the numbers he racked up as a junior and senior at East St. John High School in Reserve, La.

With Williams’ pledge, Wilson has now moved up to No. 1 in the 247Sports Recruiter Rankings, and Geaux247 will have more on this huge news for the Tigers over the course of the weekend.
