COMMIT GIVES THUMBS UP TO MOSELEY: Color Jaquay Williams impressed. The standout wide receiver from Sandy Creek in Tyrone, Ga., who is committed to Auburn, was impressed with Auburn sophomore quarterback Clint Moseley, who came off the bench in the second half to lead Auburn to a 17-6 win over Florida.

Williams is having a big senior season.

“The visit was great,” Williams said. “I think Clint Moseley did a great job. He came in and stepped in some big shoes. You never know when your name is going to be called.”

CAUGHT UP IN THE EXCITEMENT: Williams’ teammate, junior cornerback Shaq Wiggins, said the atmosphere at Jordan-Hare Stadium Saturday night was enough to win over any recruit.

“The atmosphere was amazing. It was a real good game,” Wiggins said. “It makes you want to go to Auburn and commit real quick. But you just have to go home and think about it.”

Wiggins already has seven offers including Michigan, Ohio State and Tennessee, and interest from a number of other big schools. He lists a current top five of Florida State, LSU, Michigan, USC and Florida but said Auburn would move up “immediately” if they offered.

He spoke with coaches Gene Chizik, Phillip Lolley and Trooper Taylor after the game.

“They just want me to keep playing hard. They’re going to watch ore film on me and they seem to be pretty close to offering,” he said.

JUNIOR RUNNING BACK IMPRESSED: Junior running back A.J. Turman from Boone in Orlando, Fla., made the trip to Auburn last weekend with his parents and some friends.

“It was real nice,” Turman said. “I got to see Coach. I got to be closeup on the field, walk around and see everything and see how it works.

“Out of all the schools, I think it’s one of the best-looking campuses I’ve been to.”

Turman, who has an offer from Florida State, lists a top five of Auburn, Alabama, Florida, Florida State and Miami. He camped at Auburn this summer and plans to be back for a third visit for the Alabama game on Nov. 26.

BRONX PF VISITS AUBURN: Auburn men’s basketball hosted four official visitors this weekend including power forward Daniel Dingle from St. Raymond in the Bronx, N.Y.

“It went great. I enjoyed myself,” Dingle said. “I had a lot of fun with the players. They’re actually fun. A lot of excitement and it seems like a family atmosphere. Everybody is together. The guys are pushing each other to get better every day and having fun.

“...I just love the campus and everything about Auburn.”

Dingle, 6-foot-7 and 225 pounds, has ties to the South. His mom is from Savannah, Ga., and his dad is from South Carolina. He plans to officially visit Temple next weekend and then Seton Hall before making a decision.

“Right now, I’m going to say this is going to be tough to beat,” he said. “If I went with my heart right now, I’d say it was Auburn because I had a great time. But I got to give the other schools a chance. I don’t want to rush anything.”
