The junior quarterback from Lawrenceville, Ga., has visited Kentucky a few times and worked out with the coaching staff there. He told Josh Edwards of 247Sports earlier this week Kentucky was probably his top school and he felt like Kentucky made him a priority.
“They made me feel like I was a part of the team already actually,” Williams said. “I felt like I was a Kentucky Wildcat while I was up there. It’s really more like a family thing. They aren’t really like, ‘Please come here.’ They tell me that they would love to have me but make sure I check out other schools and make sure I really want to come here. Once I commit, it’s going to be over with. They are not going to recruit any more 2018 quarterbacks. They don’t want me to flip. You know how Mac Jones flipped? They just want me to be sure that I want to go there and that’s it.”
With Williams announcing his commitment, it certainly seems like that need for the Wildcats is filled and the team got its guy for the class of 2018.
