Following the news that Ohio State officially extended a scholarship offer to UK quarterback commitment Jarren Williams on Wednesday night, Crystal Ball picks are starting to come in predicting that Williams will ultimately flip to the Buckeyes.
Two reporters from the Ohio State blog Eleven Warriors logged picks in favor of the Buckeyes on Thursday morning.
Alabama has been recruiting Williams and current Ohio State quarterback commitment Emory Jones. Several pro-Alabama picks popped up on Jones’ Crystal Ball page Thursday morning, including one from national analyst Steve Wiltfong.
If Jones does indeed flip to the Crimson Tide, it appears Williams will then become Ohio State’s top quarterback target. Williams, a top-10 dual-threat QB nationally and the face of UK’s recruiting class, visited Lexington for last weekend’s game against Tennessee and has said he remains fully committed to the Cats.
On Thursday morning, Vince Marrow — Williams’ lead recruiter at UK — tweeted this:
