Is the former four-star quarterback going to be flirting with Kentucky again?

Just when it looked like the dust was settled with Jarren Williams, there is again a possible decision to be made.

The former four-star quarterback who committed only to decommit from the Kentucky Wildcats (twice) ended up signing with the Miami Hurricanes.

Williams was redshirted as a freshman, and prior to Miami’s Pinstripe Bowl against Wisconsin, Williams was reportedly set to enter the transfer portal. With that, many believed Williams was getting ready to transfer to Kentucky, the school he flirted with many times before.

However, Williams chose to stay at Miami after then-head coach Mark Richt was able to persuade him.

Now under new head coach Manny Diaz, Miami has landed Ohio State Buckeyes transfer Tate Martell. The former four-star is fighting for immediate eligibility, which would likely make him the starter next season.

Even if Martell doesn’t get eligible, he’ll be a major threat to win the job in 2020, thus leaving Williams as a backup in what would be his redshirt sophomore year.

That would make for another quarterback in Williams’ way.

That forces us to ask the question, will Williams have yet another change of heart?

With him, you never know.

If Williams does transfer, Kentucky has nothing to lose by pursuing him. There’s a chance Gunnar Hoak will transfer, while Nik Scalzo and Amani Gilmore will likely redshirt, and Williams would have two years of eligibility after Terry Wilson leaves.

It’ll be interesting to see if there’s another decision to be made by Jarren Williams
