Back on board: 3-star QB Jarren Williams re-commits to Kentucky

Jarren Williams

About three weeks after decommitting from Kentucky, three-star quarterback Jarren Williams has pledged to the Wildcats once again.

“First, I would like to thank God, my Lord and Savior for blessing me with talent that have created doors of opportunities. My parents for all the love, support, and guidance,” Williams wrote. “To all the coaches who have played a part in my development as a football player. More importantly, I want to thank all the amzing coaches and college programs that have recruited me and offered me a scholarship to play football. It is never easy when you have so many outstanding programs.

“Simply put, I have decided to do what is best for my future and attend the university that gives me the best immediate opportunity to fulfill my dreams both academically and athletically. In the end, the relationships and trust that I have built with the coaching staff, players, and all the support from the fanbase is all too important.

“With that said, I am coming home and recommitting to play quarterback for the ‘new’ University of Kentucky. Go Wildcats!”

Williams (6 feet 2, 206 pounds), from Lawrenceville (Ga.) Central Gwinnett, recently received an invitation to the Elite 11 quarterback finals.

Williams, one of the top-20 dual-threat quarterbacks nationally, received an offer from Georgia at the beginning of May.

With Williams back on board, the Wildcats have nine players committed for 2018. Their top recruit is four-star guard Marquan McCall, the top prospect out of Michigan.
