After a hectic week, 4-star QB Jarren Williams is ready to join Miami

SNELLVILLE, Ga. — It doesn’t snow too often in Georgia, but a surprise storm rushing through the Atlanta metropolitan area Friday has Jarren Williams spending one of his last days in Snellville cooped up in his home. It has been an extraordinarily hectic week for the 4-star dual-threat quarterback, and Williams could probably do for some time to just chill.

On Wednesday, he made his commitment to Miami public. On Thursday, coach Mark Richt, offensive coordinator Thomas Brown and quarterbacks coach Jon Richt all came by for dinner with their newest pledge. Now he’s dealing with snow and a pesky reporter who had to move an interview to Williams’ home after the storm prevented the quarterback from being at Central Gwinnett High School in Lawrenceville, Ga.

“It’s night and day, Georgia and Miami,” said Williams, looking out his kitchen window while snow piled up on his porch.

This time next month, Williams won’t have to worry about any schizophrenic Georgia weather. The 6-foot-2, 211-pound senior’s commitment came exactly a month before he’ll play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio. From there, Williams will head straight to Coral Gables, Fla., to begin his career with the No. 11 Hurricanes.

Until then, Williams will still be busy. He has to finish classes, he needs to figure out who is roommate will be and then he needs to make a pit stop in Texas to play with a group of his future teammates in the Alamodome.

“I’m just preparing my mind, body, making sure I stay in shape and just continue throwing,” Williams said. “Just make sure my arm stays crisp.”

Miami may be counting on him sooner rather than later. Williams recently jumped to No. 106 overall in the 247Sports composite rankings. He should be able to push starting quarterback Malik Rosier as early as his freshman year and then compete with fellow underclassman quarterback N’Kosi Perry for the starting job long term.
