Jarren Williams offered by Ohio State Buckeyes

Ohio State may lose a QB to Alabama, which means Jarren Williams is their next target.


UPDATE: This could be about something but the timing of it makes me think this is about Williams.

The Jarren Williams recruiting saga continues to take twists and turns.

The latest news regarding Williams is that he has received an offer from the Ohio State Buckeyes, according to 247Sports Steve Wiltfong.

There has been a lot of talk of recruits flipping their commits, especially regarding Ohio State.

The Buckeyes already have a commitment from four-star duel threat QB Emory Jones, who committed to the Buckeyes in July of 2016, but several recruiting experts (including Wiltfong) are predicting Jones to flip to Alabama.

In fact, five experts flipped their picks from Ohio State to Alabama for Jones. If he were to decide to flip, that would leave an opening at the QB spot, and Williams seems to be one of their targets for that spot.

However, if you’re into following Twitter timelines, Williams’ last tweet was about meeting former Kentucky Wildcats linebacker Jay Dortch and other tweets on his timeline recently involve a picture of Williams with Vince Marrow and 2018 tight end Brendan Bates.

Interestingly, there is no mention of an Ohio State offer from Williams. Obviously, that could mean everything or mean very little and there is really no way to know for sure, but it is intriguing at the least.

Hopefully Kentucky can hang on to Williams and get him enrolled in December. He certainly has the potential to be a program-defining quarterback for the Wildcats.
