Last week Kentucky fans developed concerns that Ohio State and Alabama could steal quarterback Jarren Williams away from UK. Now there are two more schools in the mix for the Kentucky commit.
Tonight Williams revealed on Twitter that he received a scholarship offer from Auburn. The news came shortly after we discovered that Williams will take his first official visit to Miami this weekend to watch the Canes take on Notre Dame. Miami’s Rivals site spoke with Williams’ father and Williams’ coach, Todd Wofford, who said this:
“Knowing coach (Mark) Richt as long as I’ve known him, his track record with quarterbacks specifically, I think he has a good chance, as good a chance as anybody (to land Williams). Just because what Jarren has always looked for is the best place to develop as a quarterback.
“Jarren’s not looking for a specific team, he’s looking for someone that has a record of places where they can develop him as a player on and off the field. He and his family are doing their due diligence, making sure they’re going to the right spot.”
Williams visited UK for the Tennessee game and remains committed to Kentucky. He will take an official visit to Ohio State in two weeks and Auburn the following week. He plans on taking his official to UK in mid-December with the rest of the 2018 recruiting class, but that official visit has not yet been scheduled.
The four-star quarterback will graduate in December and sign on the dotted line when the early signing period begins on December 20. The crazy race down the stretch is just beginning.
I've now heard analysts from four different schools say that they feel good about their chances with #Kentucky QB commit Jarren Williams. He's going to play for all five schools, I guess.
