In a surprise twist, it’s not a certain Ohio State transfer.Miami head coach Manny Diaz announced that he would be naming redshirt freshman Jarren Williams as the starter. Williams beat out former Ohio State quarterback Tate Martell and sophomore N’Kosi Perry for the job.Diaz pointed to Williams’ passing ability, instincts and determination in coming to the decision. He added that Martell and Perry will now compete for the backup role.“All three guys showed tremendous improvement and development, which is a credit to their hard work and the work of Dan Enos and his offensive staff,” Diaz said. “We believe we can win with all three guys, however, we feel like Jarren has the greatest upside due to his passing ability, his instincts and his determination.“As we move into preparation for the Florida game we will continue the competition to determine who will serve as the backup quarterback.”Williams is a former four-star prospect who joined the Hurricanes in 2018. Per 247Sports he was the No. 77 overall recruit, the No. 5 dual-threat quarterback, and the No. 10 prospect from Georgia. He appeared in one game for Miami last year, scoring a touchdown on the ground in a win over Savannah State.Congrats to @Jarren2Williams on winning the QB1 job at the 🙌🏽! #TNM https://t.co/FbLfN9Yh6g— Manny Diaz (@Coach_MannyDiaz) August 12, 2019Williams is going to have his work cut out for him in his first college start. He’ll have 12 days to prepare before the Hurricanes head to Orlando for a game against Florida.The announcement is certainly a major blow to Tate Martell. He left Ohio State in the offseason and got a transfer waiver to play in 2019.last_img read more
