The Kentucky Wildcats landed their third commit in the last week on Monday morning.
Three-star quarterback Jaren Williams, a dual-threat from Central Gwinnett High School in Lawrenceville, Georgia, recommitted to Mark Stoops and the Wildcats.
Williams joins linemen Marquan McCall and Quintin Wilson, who committed last Monday and on Sunday respectively. He is the ninth member of the 2018 class for Kentucky and boosts them up to 21st in the country and third in the SEC in 247Sports’ recruiting rankings.
After decommitting on April 24, Williams had a visit from the Florida State Seminoles staff and was offered by the Georgia Bulldogs. In the end however, the Georgia native decided that UK was the best place for him and will now be suiting up for the ‘Cats next fall.
Jarren currently ranks in the Top 20 among dual-threat quarterbacks in 2018. He sits at 16th in the country at the position per 247Sports, hanging around the likes of Virginia Tech Hokies commit Quincy Patterson, Maryland Terrapins commit Tyler DeSue and Tulsa Golden Hurricane commit Jace Ruder.
Per OurLads’ depth chart, QB looks to be a need for the future. As of right now, there are two QBs on the roster in the form of Stephen Johnson and Luke Wright. With that said, two incoming freshmen will be in the fold as three-star Danny Clark (Akron, OH) and three-star Walker Wood (Lexington, KY) are being brought in this coming fall. Williams will likely be competing with these players when he joins the Wildcats, and he certainly has the talent to bring himself up the rungs.
