The Kentucky Wildcats have once again lost a pledge from a quarterback.

According to, Jarren Williams is backing off his commitment from Kentucky.

This is a tough, but not surprising break for Kentucky, as Williams was becoming one of the most sought-after quarterbacks in the 2018 class.

Since he committed to Kentucky in June of 2016, Williams has scored scholarship offers from Alabama, Florida, LSU, Michigan State, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Missouri, Mississippi State, South Carolina and Miami among others.

Seeing that kind of offer sheet would make many recruits reopen their recruitment, so it’s no surprise seeing Williams will take a step back and analyze all of his options.

That doesn’t mean he’s gone for good, but I wouldn’t expect Williams to recommit. Not only does he have a ton of offers from major programs, but Kentucky also has great security at quarterback with Gunnar Hoak being just a redshirt freshman in 2017, while Danny Clark will be a true freshman. Drew Barker also has 2-3 more seasons of eligibility, depending on if he gets a medical redshirt for missing most of last season.
