A week after he decommitted from the Auburn Tigers, 4-star prep wide receiver JaQuay Williams has committed to the Texas A&M Aggies.

This is a huge turn of events for Texas A&M, as Williams is an extremely talented wide receiver who will be a big part of the Aggies' passing game. He's 6'4'', 204 pounds, and he's ranked as the No. 1 prep school wide receiver in the country, according to the 247Sports composite rankings.

Taylor Hamm of 247Sports reports the news on Gigem247 board:

JaQuay Williams has committed to Texas A&M. He's the number 1 rated PREP wide receiver in the country according to 247Sports Composite. He chose the Aggies over Georgia and South Carolina.

Overall, this is a big win for the Aggies, but what exactly does Williams bring to the table for Texas A&M?

At 6'4'', he's tall enough to be a jump-ball target over the top and he'll be very useful in the red zone. At 204 pounds, his size will also allow him to be strong at the line breaking off jams, and it will be advantageous when going over the middle or running after the catch.

He has a wide receiving radius and has the ability to go up and get the ball because of his length. He also has quick feet and a great burst off the line of scrimmage. He should be able to get a good jump at the college level against man coverage, and he's fast enough to break the deep zone (He runs a 4.5 40 according to Rivals.com).

Williams won't be locked in as a certain type of receiver, which is what makes him such a good pickup for Texas A&M. He's more than capable of being a deep threat, but he'll be able to run hitches, slants and other shorter routes as well, using his size against smaller defenders.

With the addition of Williams to their 2013 class, the Aggies now stand at 32 verbal commitments, five of which are wide receivers, including WIlliams. This is big for Texas A&M considering the success freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel has had this season. With the amount of talent A&M is bringing in at wideout position through recruiting, it is ensuring that Manziel will have plenty of targets to throw to, and Williams could end up being the most talented of the bunch.

He'll fit perfectly into the Aggies' scheme, and I wouldn't be surprised to see him become one of Manziel's favorite targets in the future.

So what's next for Texas A&M in regards to recruiting?

Five-star receiver Ricky Seals-Jones should still be the Aggies' main focus. He's 6'5'', 230 pounds and runs a 4.60 40 according to 247Sports. 247Sports also has A&M in his top two, along with LSU.

Williams' commitment could actually help A&M's chances of landing Seals-Jones, so that's another positive.

It's easy to see that the Aggies are setting themselves up to have a dominant passing game in the future, and they have their superstar quarterback in Manziel. The spread offense works best with more than one elite target, though, so Seals-Jones would actually benefit from playing with Williams, and that works both ways for both recruits.

They would complement each other as receivers, and when you factor in 6'6'', 215-pound, 4-star receiver recruit Derrick Griffin, you're looking at a potential dominant receiving corp.

Overall, landing Williams' commitment is huge for Texas A&M. He'll be a huge part of Aggies' success in the future, and may even help them land Seals-Jones when all is said and done.

You can't ask for more if you're an Aggies fan.
