12/19 Update: Williams has now signed with The Seminoles, making his commitment to Florida State official.
For the second straight day, Florida State has secured a commitment at a massive position of need, recently gaining the verbal pledge of JUCO offensive lineman Jay Williams of Moreno Valley, California’s Grossmont College. This comes on the heels of getting a commitment from ILB Kevon Glenn on Sunday.
Williams (6’6, 290) is the first tackle to commit to the Seminoles’ 2019 class, and he’ll be making it official later this week when he puts pen to paper during the Early Signing Period. A three-star prospect, Williams was recruited to Tallahassee by OL coach Greg Frey and receivers coach David Kelly.
Williams chose the ’Noles over offers from Louisville, Indiana, Missouri, Louisiana Tech, UCF, New Mexico State, Grambling State, Georgia State, and Old Dominion, among others. Originally from El Cajon, CA, Williams has seen a definite rise in attention from FSU coaches of late, getting visits from the aforementioned assistants as well as head coach Willie Taggart himself. Williams will look to bolster what was an embarrassing offensive line for the Seminoles in 2018 after enrolling early in 2019.
