Just 11 days after announcing his college decision, D’haquille Williams the nation’s No. 1 junior college prospect, has de-committed from LSU.

“I decommitted from LSU so I can explore all my options,” Williams told the New Orleans Times-Picayune on Tuesday. “I plan on doing so during the summer and fall.”

Williams says that he is still considering LSU along with Auburn, Alabama, Texas A&M and Florida State among others. Defensive back Derrick Moncrief, his teammate at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, recently committed to Auburn.

Last season, the 6-foot-3, 215-pound wide receiver caught 67 passes for 1,295 yards, an average of 19.3 yards per reception, and 17 touchdowns. He was second in the nation receiving yards, touchdowns and yards per game (117.7).

Williams graduated from East St. John High School in Reserve, La. in 2011 and was one of the most talked about prep players in Louisiana. He was expected to sign with LSU but academic issues forced him to go the junior college route.

He redshirted his first year at Mississippi Gulf Coast and is expected to graduate in December. If he does, Williams would be a mid-year enrollee with three seasons of eligibility remaining.
