Jarren Williams has earned scholarship offers from the likes of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana State and Tennessee, and he turned down all of those traditional Southeastern Conference powers to stick with his original commitment to the University of Kentucky. Though listed as a dual-threat quarterback, Williams is a pass-first player who excels at throwing the ball and can move the pocket to stretch plays. He does have the ability to run when the opportunity presents itself, and he should be a dynamic quarterback for the Wildcats with an opportunity to play early in his college career. Williams stood out on the national camp circuit this past summer and plans to enroll in classes at UK for the spring semester, which will allow him to go through spring practice with the Wildcats in 2018. Already a four-star prospect — according to every national rankings service — Williams still has plenty of upside and could see another bump in his ranking before he becomes a Wildcat.
