2018 quarterback commit Jarren Williams has received an offer from the Auburn Tigers, according to his Twitter. He has also scheduled a couple visits, according to 247 Sports.
Very blessed and honored to receive an offer from Auburn University. pic.twitter.com/TmoiphPGm8— J D U B (@Jarren2Williams) November 6, 2017
The 4-star U.S. Army All-American now has 28 Division I scholarship offers, including offers from Alabama, Ohio State, Miami (FL), Georgia, Florida State, LSU, Ole Miss, Florida — the list goes on.
The Georgia native is racking up the offers, and the pressure on Kentucky to keep him seems to be heavy. Although Vince Marrow isn’t too concerned.

That tweet came following Williams’ offer from Ohio State. Williams reinforced his commitment to Kentucky by tweeting this:
This has been a weird recruitment, and even though Williams is steady with his Kentucky commitment, and his dad has told Kentucky Sports Radio that he’ll be enrolling at Kentucky in January, Williams is still scheduling visits elsewhere.
However, Cleveland.com reports that Williams will visit Ohio State on Nov. 17. That’s a good sign that he has real interest in the Buckeyes, even if he’s trying to make it appear he’s firm with Kentucky.
Williams will aos visit Miami (FL) this weekend, and is expected to visit Auburn for the Iron Bowl, according to Keith Niebuhr of 247 Sports. I (along with many others) spotted Williams on Kroger Field prior to Kentucky’s game against Tennessee a couple of weeks ago.
Williams’ high school career is now over. The senior played his final game last Friday. He finished his senior season with 3,015 passing yards, 28 touchdowns, four interceptions and 554 rushing yards.
He’s still a Kentucky commit for now, but bigger programs will continue to pry, regardless of whether it’s working or not.
