Miami Hurricanes 2018 Quarterback offer Breakdown: Jarren Williams


The Miami Hurricanes have zeroed in on talented Georgia dual-threat quarterback Jarren Williams. Miami recently suffered a de-commitment from Bradenton, Florida’s IMG quarterback product Artur Sitkowski.

Williams yields from Central Gwinnett High School in Lawrenceville, Georgia. Georgia is certainly not to be outdone this cycle in terms of Size/Mobility:

Williams is listed at 6’3″ 211 pounds and has the ideal frame to stand tall in the pocket. Mobility is there and Williams is classified as Zone read capable.

Williams runs a 4.75 forty and on film looks a step slower than current Miami Hurricane signal caller Malik Rosier. (4.69 forty). He shows good strength and can shed arm tackles. Williams has the ability to gain good chunk yardage with his feet and you can idealistically center run plays around him. 

He has good elusiveness and instinctively evades pressure. Williams efficacy intensifies when he is on the run and his ability to keep his eyes downfield equivocates well at the next level. Definitely fits under the dual threat umbrella.

Release/Arm Strength/Accuracy: Good repeatable delivery. No long hitches or overtly noticeable hitch idiosyncrasies. Can very easily plug into a quick passing attack system with a noticeable quick delivery system.

The most impressive ball is on nine routes. He throws habitually high and outside in a place where only his receiver can catch them. Accuracy on the run does taper off and is relatively strong mechanic wise in that area.

Arm strength ranks seven out of 10.

Senior film shows deepest balls to fall in around the 50-55 yard range. No deep out routes/corners/comebacks noticed consistently throughout his film. Some receivers noted coming back for the ball on some long shots.

With increased strength training and development, his arm strength can improve producing high-level quarterback prospects. The number one consensus recruit in America Justin Fields, number one pro-style QB Trevor Lawrence and dual-threat Emory Jones all reside from the “Peach State.”

Williams has solidified himself as another Georgia peach and has shown remarkable development from last year to this year.

Footwork/Rhythm: The best aspect of Williams’ delivery system is his front foot. He never overstrides and stays tall as a result. Quick short front foot and consistent front foot speed leads to repeatable results. His improvement here is direct line with his accuracy improving yearly and sits 61% for his senior year.

When Williams’ is decisive in his decision matrix his rhythm is exceptional. Some indecision will show a breakdown of rhythm predicated practice and will need to learn to gather or go more seamlessly in the future.

Head Coach Mark Richt requires systematically precise rhythm and this area has been a staple under Richt’s tutelage. These are extremely coach-able.

Roman Rank: Quarterback Coach Jon Richt and the Miami Hurricanes have made no secret that Williams is their “Air Apparent” for the 2018 class. Williams has all the tools necessary to captain the Hurricanes offense and shows enormous playmaking ability.
