Jarren Williams’ father to KSR: Son is committed, will enroll in January


Last night, there was a bit of a drama surrounding UK quarterback commit Jarren Williams after SEC Country published an interview with his father, Anthony, that suggested his son was still listening to programs like Alabama and Ohio State because he wants to go to a school where he can win right away. This morning, Anthony Williams called into KSR to clear up the confusion.

“I understand there was an article that came that came out that had been misconstrued. I just want to clear things up,” Williams said. “Jarren is committed and he’s looking to enroll at Kentucky in January.”

Williams Sr. wanted to make it clear that his statements about Jarren wanting to win were simply a reflection of his son’s current feelings towards his high school team, NOT Kentucky.

“Just his current frustration with his current high school team right now. They’re 5-4 and he had some players on his team that weren’t being accountable and they’re supposed to be part of the leadership team and they’re not coming in, they’re not practicing. It’s just a lot of frustration on his part and he feels the team has an ability to be better but they’re not committed the way he is and he’s just frustrated about that and he wants to win. It’s his senior year and he wants to go out with a bang.”

So those comments had zero to do with Kentucky?

“Absolutely not,” Williams said. “Absolutely not. He is committed to Kentucky. We’ll be up there this weekend for the Tennessee game. He’s excited about it. They have a fantastic coaching staff and those guys have been nothing but supportive. I’m not sure how that got misconstrued.”

Glad we cleared that up.

    A lot can happen in three months so I’ll stay skeptical. That said, Stoops is still looking for his first great QB. Maybe Williams will be him

      What about Drew Barker? What about Gunnar Hoak? What about Danny Clark? These were all made out to be the greatest QBs?

      He has every right to be upset. His favorite AD got fired, after he hung the moon.

      I think it’s too late for that, Mathlete. The best thing for him is to just stop watching sports. Life is too short to be miserable over something that is supposed to be a diversion from real life stress.

      @Clutch – I’m not quitting on Slater, and you shouldn’t either! I believe in you Slater!

    If what the dad is now saying is accurate, then the SEC Country writer completely presented the dad’s words in the wrong context.

    I think this kid is gonna be special. Should he stay committed and end up in blue and white, I think we’re gonna absolutely love him.

    He wants to win right away in High School, but doesn’t care about it College?
