Auburn signs top 100 WR Williams, OL Adams

Posted by Jerry Hinnen

Still stinging from Jordan Moore's decision to head to TCU Tuesday nightAuburn rebounded in a big way by signing a pair of teammates from the Peach State.

Wide receiver JaQuay Williams and offensive lineman Will Adams both announced they would sign with the Tigers at their Sandy Creek High School in Tyrone, Ga. The headliner of the pair is undoubtedly the four-star Williams, the nation's No. 53 overall prospect according to the Maxpreps top 100 and the No. 4 receiver in the class.

The 6'4", 201-pound Williams had been committed to Auburn since early 2011 but had taken a recent visit to Georgia and was considering a late flip to the Bulldogs.

Adams, meanwhile, had been a longtime Georgia Tech commitment before the Tigers stepped in with a late offer. A 6'5", 280-pound lineman that could play multiple positions on the line, Adams' decision will help ease Auburn's pain on (reportedly) losing out on guard Alex Kozan

After starting the day with the fewest number of commitments in the SEC, the additions of Adams and Phenix City (Ala.) quarterback Jonathan Wallace bring the Tigers to 17 signees. Auburn currently ranks 21st in the CBS Sports National signing Day Top 25.

Fast-rising S Jordan Moore pledges to TCU

Posted by Jerry Hinnen

TCU hasn't had the best of luck on the trail over the past week, losing key commitments to Texas and Texas A&M. But the horned Frogs took a big step back in the right direction Tuesday night with a pledge from fast-rising Georgia safety Jordan Moore.

Moore made the announcement on the SportSouth network.

"Coach [Gary] Patterson is a great guy," Moore said. "[He and coach] Rusty Burns were essential in recruiting me in this process."

Thanks to a transfer of schools and injuries, Moore was a largely unknown quantity as recently as January, before his senior film and sprinter's speed earned him a host of late offers from some of the nation's top programs. Moore chose the Frogs over co-finalist Auburn, Ohio State, North Carolina and others.

6'2", 205-pound recruit from M.L. King High in Lithonia, Moore is the two-time defending Georgia state champion in the 110-meter hurdles and had originally planned to go to LSU on a track scholarship. Combine that speed with his protypical safety size, and it's easy to understand why so many schools were eager to extend an offer even this close to signing day.

“He just kind of blew up over night. When the colleges looked at his senior film, they couldn’t believe what they saw," King head coach Mike Carson told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in mid-January. "They love his size and his speed, and they are shocked to see how physical he is.”

Thanks in part to Moore's impact on defense, King finished their season 12-1 and 7-0 in their conference.

Moore's commitment brings the Frogs back to 20 commitments for their 2012 class. The news stings for Auburn, though, still sitting on an SEC-low 15 commitments entering signing day. The Tigers currently rank 21st in the CBS Sports National Signing Day Top 25, and with several huge names like defensive tackle Eddie Goldmandefensive back Ronald Darby and linebacker Kwon Alexander still on the Auburn board, the Tigers could make a big move up--or drop out of the top 25 entirely.
