Class of 2018 quarterback Jarren Williams of Lawrenceville, Ga., has been committed to Kentucky since June, but the offers continue to roll in, including one from South Carolina earlier this week.
Williams (6-3, 201) also has offers from Florida State, Louisville, Houston, Maryland, West Virginia, Colorado, Colorado State and South Florida.
“I was excited to get an offer from South Carolina,” Williams said. “It’s always an honor to be recognized for all your hard work that you put in both on and off the field. I think South Carolina is a solid program and thankful for the offer. I have really not thought about my interest level. I am committed to UK and not actively looking around.”
Williams visited USC last weekend for the Tennessee game and had the chance to talk with quarterbacks coach and co-offensive coordinator Kurt Roper.
Never miss a local story.
“He said that they are really high on me and feel that my ability to make every throw from the pocket and my athleticism are a perfect fit in what they are trying to do offensively,” Williams said. “They want to build a relationship so I can learn more about the school, coaching staff, community and what South Carolina can offer academically.”
Williams also has been to Kentucky several times along with Florida State, Louisville, Auburn, Tennessee, Florida and Georgia.
▪ USC offered 2018 QB Artur Sitkowski (6-4, 205) of Matawan, NJ, back in the summer and still has USC as a school on his consideration list. “Yes they are definitely in the mix. I like South Carolina a lot. I haven’t visited a lot of places this season due to my season, but I visited South Carolina, North Carolina, Ohio State, Michigan, Florida, Miami, Pitt, Rutgers and Maryland this summer and spring.” One place Sitkowski has visited this season is Rutgers. Some of his other offers are Florida, Miami, North Carolina, Wisconsin, Boston College and Ole Miss.
▪ 2019 OL Michael Tarquin (6-5, 272) of Ocala, Fla., said he’s been in recent contact with USC and Clemson. “I have interest from Clemson, South Carolina, Florida, South Florida, FAU, and Michigan State. I’m trying to schedule a visit to South Carolina. And I’ve visited Clemson, FAU, Florida and Michigan State.” Tarquin was at Clemson for the spring game. He has not yet picked up any offers.
