Future Kentucky quarterback turning heads at The Opening

How good is future Cat Jarren Williams? According to reporters at The Opening, he could be one of the top five quarterback prospects in the country. Through two days, Williams has turned heads at the prestigious camp, earning Player of the Game honors for his three-touchdown performance in game two of the 7-on-7 tournament; that was enough for SEC Country’s Jeff Sentell to ask whether or not it’s time to rank him among the elite of the elite in the 2018 class:

On Thursday, 247 Sports’ Barton Simmons ranked Williams third among his Day One Top Performers.

“We like Williams a little more every time we see him. The guy does everything well. He may not do any one thing at a rare level but he’s also has no real deficiencies. During a competition period, Williams made a throw on a vertical route that was one of the better throws of the day.”

Some of Williams’ highlights for your viewing pleasure (and yes, those helmets caught me off guard the first time I saw them too):

The 7-on-7 tournament continues today, so hopefully we’ll have some more highlights from Williams to share later on.

    How huge would it be for Williams to get that 5th star, and help us recruit other top talent?

    YUGE!

    Is Mark Pope the new WCS? Or is WCS the new Mark Pope?

    I would be really worried about keeping the kid had he not already rebuffed the Crimson Tide before his second commit. It may be good for UK that it all happened that way, even though it was annoying at the time.

    Sounds like you people can’t handle the truth very well

      I really do try to remain positive, and I hope beyond belief that I’m wrong….but when he de commits again there is going to be one hell of an explosion in the Bluegrass….

    As long as we get to 7 wins and go bowling and still look improving with another program turning win, then he will be a Cat. Cant afford anything less than 6 wins though.

    We get 7 or 8, with SJ. This kid has to think he is better than that and could get us 1-2 possibly 3 depending on how competitive we are this year.
