Friday Quickies: Jarren Williams Edition

Surprise, surprise: Jarren Williams is changing teams.

NCAA Football: Independence Bowl-Louisiana Tech vs Miami Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports

To no surprise, Miami Hurricanes quarterback Jarren Williams has entered the transfer portal. This decision comes just days after former Houston Cougars quarterback D’Eriq King transferred to Miami and is assumed to take the starting reigns.

Just over two years ago, Williams de-committed from the Kentucky Wildcats for the Hurricans after Miami took down No. 3 Notre Dame during a visit. Interestingly enough, though, Miami has since then gone 13-13 while Kentucky has posted a record of 18-8. The Wildcats have also won both of their bowl games while the Hurricanes have failed to enjoy any postseason success.

For the 2019 season, Williams completed 61% of his passes and tossed 19 touchdowns to seven interceptions. While it’s unclear where Williams will end up, you can be sure that his landing destination will not be Lexington. With Terry Wilson being backed up by Beau Allen and Joey Gatewood, the Wildcats will surely elect to move forward with the group they have.
