Committed to Kentucky for more than 10 months, fast-rising Peach State QB prospect Jarren Williams is back on the market

Jarren Williams has backed off of his longstanding verbal commitment to Kentucky and a handful of programs are now in the mix for his services.

After more than 10 months of being a verbal pledge to Kentucky, red-hot quarterback prospect Jarren Williams has taken a step back. 

The Lawrenceville (Ga.) Central Gwinnett passer took to Twitter to announce the news Monday afternoon:


Williams is amid a hot spring on the recruiting trail, adding scholarship offers from AlabamaLSUFloridaOle Miss and Michigan State and several others since the 2017 class made things official on National Signing Day. His most recent visits include Kentucky and Alabama, in between competing at several spring camps and combines. 

A source tells Scout the next commitment from Williams could come sometime soon as he evaluates options between the schools he is in communication with. 

"Florida, Florida State, LSU, Ole Miss, Tennessee and Kentucky," the source said of programs potentially in the mix for his next pledge.

The source mentioned fast-growing relationships with Alabama and Auburn as potential factors in the near future, too.
