Devon Williams

The Kentucky Wildcats have lose their first commitment of the 2021 class.

On Friday, three-star linebacker Devon Williams decommitted from Kentucky and flipped to Minnesota, per Ryan Burns of 247 Sports.

The Dublin Coffman (OH) product, who measures in at 6-1 and 215 pounds, is ranked as the nation’s No. 40 outside linebacker by 247 Sports. He also held offers from the Michigan Wolverines, Michigan State Spartans, Nebraska Cornhuskers, Arkansas Razorbacks and West Virginia Mountaineers. 247 also ranks him as the No. 17 prospect from Ohio in 2021.

Being that Williams is an Ohio product, it’s a surprise to see Kentucky and recruiting ace Vince Marrow lose a recruit from the Buckeye State. Williams also attends the same high school as four-star athlete Michael Drennen, who signed with the Wildcats in the Class of 2020.
