Last week Kentucky fans developed concerns that Ohio State and Alabama could steal quarterback Jarren Williams away from UK. Â 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. Â 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. Â Miami’s Rivals site spoke with Williams’ father and Williams’ coach, Todd Wofford, who said this:
â€œKnowing coach (Mark) Richt as long as Iâ€™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.
“Jarrenâ€™s not looking for a specific team, heâ€™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 theyâ€™re going to the right spot.â€
Williams visited UK for the Tennessee game and remains committed to Kentucky. Â He will take an official visit to Ohio State in two weeks and Auburn the following week. Â 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. Â 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.
