JaQuay Williams, who was a part of Auburn's recruiting class on Signing Day 2012, has committed to play for Texas A&M.

Wide receiver JaQuay Williams, once an Auburn signee, committed to Texas A&M Sunday, according to Billy Liucci of TexAgs.com.

Williams was a long-time Auburn commit during the 2012 recruiting cycle, and he signed with the Tigers on Feb. 1, 2012. But Williams failed to qualify academically, and he was forced to enroll in prep school earlier this fall. He remained committed to Auburn until the firing of head coach Gene Chizik. Chizik was fired last Sunday afternoon, and Williams decommitted later that evening.

Williams was one of the best high school players out of Georgia in the 2012 class. He said he would still consider Auburn after opening his commitment, but the Tigers' realistic chance of re-landing Williams was always going to be slim to none.

With Chizik gone and no replacement hired, Auburn's 2013 recruiting class is in a state of flux. Depending on who the Tigers choose, there is a good chance several other players will decided to find new schools, too.
