Jarren Williams sets four official visits
The 6-foot-3, 205 pound quarterback out of Lawrenceville (Ga.) Central Gwinnett threw for 419 yards and six touchdowns Friday night in a loss with Miami quarterback coach Jon Richt on the sideline.
Could the Hurricanes be the biggest threat to the Wildcats?
Williams was planning to take an unofficial visit to Auburn this weekend for their game against Georgia, but with it being Miami's final home game, the Hurricanes convinced him to spend this weekend in Coral Gables.
The Williams family has a good connection with Richt due to meeting him years ago when he was the head coach in Athens.
This will be the first official visit for Williams. He is set to head south Thursday.
It will be a busy month for Williams. After visiting Miami this weekend, he is now set to visit Ohio State and Auburn the next two weekends. At this time, both are scheduled as official visits.
He will see the Buckeyes play Illinois, then be a part of the Iron Bowl the final weekend in November when he visits Auburn.
Ohio State just offered Williams last week. Auburn has been in this race much longer than most think according to sources. The Tigers were at one time viewed as the biggest threat to Kentucky, but Miami has really worked its way into that conversation now.
At this time, it looks like Kentucky will receive the final official visit. Williams is set to be in Lexington the weekend of December 8. The connection he has with that coaching staff is what keeps Williams committed to the Wildcats at this time. Will that be enough to fend off the Tigers, Hurricanes and Buckeyes?
Kentucky is not used to beating out those type of schools for a top flight quarterback, so it won't be easy.
While working to complete high school, Williams is truly juggling recruiting at the same time. He is (and has been) talking to multiple coaches from the four schools daily, so his head has to be spinning at this time.
Williams has planned to sign his letter of intent on December 20, the first day of the early signing period. Williams will be graduating high school in December and that is still set as long as he knows for sure of his decision.
He had a phenomenal senior season. Williams threw for 3,105 yards and 28 touchdowns with only four interceptions.
His recruitment looks to be far from over. It should be a very interesting and busy next six weeks for Williams and his family.
