A Texas A&M official confirmed on Monday that sophomore wide receiver Ja’Quay Williams will transfer. According to his Uncle
, Williams would like to be closer to home.
“Yes, he is transferring,” Kevin Ofchus told the paper. “It was the distance, and standard things that college kids go through. Things just didn’t work out, and that happens sometimes. It’s no big deal. There’s no issues or anything like that.
“He left Texas A&M on good terms and he’s looking forward to moving ahead. He’s just looking for a place to fit in.”
Williams played at Sandy Creek High School in Tyrone, Ga., and signed with Auburn in 2012 but didn’t academically qualify. He then attended Fork Union Military Academy in Virginia before making his way to Texas A&M. He caught four passes for 77 yards last season for the Aggies.
