BC in Top Three for '21 Texas WR Jaden Williams
Boston College remains active recruiting in the Class of '21, recently offering WR Jaden Williams out of Pflugerville, Texas
(he edited his spelling mistake in a subsequent tweet)
Williams is a 5'10 three star wide receiver who until this weekend was committed to Tulane. He announced his decision to decommit and explained to BC Bulletin that he is focusing on Boston College, Utah and Tulane.
The young wide receiver's recruitment picked up earlier this month when he received his offer from the Eagles. "It was exciting" he told BC Bulletin. His main recruiter, wide receiver coach Joe Dailey was the one to offer him but he also heard from the head coach as well. "I talked to Coach Dailey and Coach Hafley they were just saying how much they loved my film and how I play and basically telling me I need to be playing for a Power 5 school."
Boston College' offense has been clicking this year, with a solid passing attack led by transfer quarterback Phil Jurkovec. Their success on the field caught the attention of Williams. "Coach told me about the offense and from what it sounds like I would love to be in it," he explained. "I actually looked at some of their recent games and they are a solid program."
With the clock winding down on the Class of '21 recruiting cycle there is a challenge that has presented itself. Because of restrictions caused by COVID-19, and the dead period lasting until January (but looking to be indefinite), Williams will not be able to officially visit Boston College or the staff. However, he does plan to do what most recruits are doing, which is do a virtual visit.
BC Bulletin will continue to monitor the recruitment of Jaden Williams and any updates as they arise.
