The Georgia Bulldogs had been pursuing the commitment of wide receiver Ja'Quay Williams despite his signed commitment to the Auburn Tigers. But with Auburn's search for a new coach underway and Georgia's trip to the SEC title game, Williams has de-committed from Auburn.

According to a report from the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Williams de-committed from Auburn on Sunday night after taking an official visit with Georgia over the weekend. Williams signed with Auburn in February, but almost switched to Georgia at the last moment.

But after being ruled academically ineligible, Williams was free to de-commit from Auburn and visit with other schools. He is expected to become eligible again in December. The wide receiver was considered the best in the state in last year's recruiting class.

Williams has also visited with the Texas A&M Aggies, but Georgia remains the front runner for the Sandy Creek High School recruit, according to the AJC's report.
