Big news: Per report, Mark Richt and staff convince Jarren Williams to stay with Hurricanes

Big big news

NCAA Football: Savannah State at Miami Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

After a report that talented freshman Jarren Williams was planning to transfer from Miami, coaches and staff declined comment for a couple days.

Then, minutes ago, Steve Wiltfong of 247sports posted an update to the situation, and it’s one that is music to Canes’ fans ears.

Per the report, Williams, a 4-star recruit from Lawrenceville, GA, has elected to stay at Miami and NOT transfer. With a dearth of available talent, and Williams’ own talent and potential for the future, this is a big win for the Canes.

Williams is on pace to redshirt this season, but has the physical attributes and skills to be a very good player at Miami down the line.

Additionally, Miami maintains 3 scholarship QBs on the roster, and look to add another one before next season.

This is the best case scenario, and I’m glad that Williams is staying.
