Report: Ex-Miami QB Jarren Williams will transfer to Garden City CC

According to a report, former Miami quarterback Jarren Williams will transfer to Garden City Community College — a JUCO program in Kansas.

Williams entered the transfer portal back in January — not long after D’Eriq King announced his decision to transfer from Houston to Miami.

During his prep career, Williams, a 4-star quarterback out of Georgia, committed and decommitted to the University of Kentucky on multiple occasions.

Williams eventually committed to Miami in Nov. 2017; he then signed with the Hurricanes during the Dec. 2017 early signing period. Williams appeared in one game during the 2018 season and took a redshirt.

Two weeks prior to kicking off the 2019 season against Florida, Manny Diaz named Williams his starting quarterback. Williams beat out Ohio State transfer Tate Martell and N’Kosi Perry for the job. Williams started the first give games of the season — until a shoulder injury (suffered in the Virginia Tech game) forced him out.

Perry got a chance to run things as the starter for a little while; in his first start of the season, Miami beat Virginia on a Friday night.

Williams regained the position later in the season and put together a few strong performances — wins over Florida State and Louisville. Williams threw six touchdown passes against Louisville. He finished the season with a 61.2 percent complete rate and 19 touchdown passes.
