Jarren Williams Picks Up Auburn Offer, Will Officially Visit Miami


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.

    Yeah, sounds like he’s totally “committed” to Kentucky lol.

  2. opinpi

    He gone

  3. AllBlueAllDay

    This recruitment is wearing on me big time. I want to be positive that he will sign here but all these big name schools have me second guessing. Especially Miami with having Richt, who I’m sure Jarren knows well from his Georgia days, and the success they are having this year. This really bites.

    If he leaves, this would be the most dissapointing recruitment in history of UK football.

    1. AllBlueAllDay

      Completely agree. I feel like even more so than Damien going to bama.

  5. Dallas

    He is gone. If stoops and company actually get him I will be totally surprised.

  6. UKinIN

    It looks like the family is aggressively trying to find a new school for Jarren to commit to 100%.

  7. Solidtilt1

    Danny Clark ftw I do want Jerran though.. either way we will be straight at qb

  8. AGSlater

    Hes gone. Why take so many visits? Why come to uk and get coached by a guy that cant coach? Why deal with fans like me?

    1. J-Dub421

      No one wants to deal with “fans” like you.

    FIRE EDDIE GRAN

    If he wants to develope as a QB why would he pick Ohio State. Most of their QB’s go on to be WR in the NFL or backup qb’s at best. Richt and Miami scare me. Sad thing is his dad said a short time ago he is totally UK, hope his word means something as that would help develope your son as a person. I think UK has got the most out of SJ as anyone could have, there is a reason he was at some small school in Cali. Dude does not have great accuracy, not bashing the kid, as I love and appreciate what he has done for us when we needed him, just stating facts. He is much better at taking care of the ball vs last year and comes through in the clutch. Hope the Williams family sees all that as well.

    I still think it’s ridiculous to take official visits or entertain offers if you actually commit somewhere. If you’re considering other teams, decommit so you don’t keep a team on the hook with false expectations.

    I also find it moronic that college football is fine with offering committed recruits.

    1. ofallthethings

      Yeah you’re right, it’s ridiculous to get to travel the country and visit some awesome campuses and spend a weekend being treated like royalty. You must be a terrible person to want to completely make sure you are making the right decision for your future. How dare he do his due diligence. He’s committed to us for a reason. Right now we feel like the right fit for him and where he feels the most comfortable, but if he hasn’t had a chance to visit these other schools yet then how would he know there isn’t a better situation for him, not his fault they are just now giving him that opportunity.

  12. jaws2

    If he decides to play elsewhere, then he does.

  13. bigbluechesticles

    I’m over this kid. Committed, then decommitted, then committed again and tells everyone he’s shutting down his recruitment, then still takes all of these visits, really? Turning into a drama queen and looking for attention. Just go ahead and decommitt again and get it over with. Always looking for something better, go sit the bench somewhere else and move on. No qb’s will be running to play for Eddie, that’s for sure.

  14. UKPROF

    Said it once and I’ll say it again, If UK loses 2 more games this year (and Georgia is 1) then Williams will display a vote of ‘lack-of-confidence’ in the coaching staff at UK and bolt. Write it down!

  15. RackEmWillie

    Jarren, go somewhere else. Mark Richt is an extremely better coach that Stoops. So is Meyer. So it Malzahn. And Saban is easily one of the best coaches of all time.

    As much as I would love for UK to get a player of that talent, he’s better suited at any other program that has offered him. I have yet to see any real development of offensive skill players by this staff. If you want to have a shot at playing on Sunday, go elsewhere.
