Yesterday, a report from 247 Sports' Steve Wiltfong indicated that Miami four-star freshman quarterback Jarren Williams was going to transfer from the program. Now, that appears to be changing.

A new report from Wiltfong states that Williams has had a change of heart. Williams' father told Wiltfong that Miami head coach Mark Richt and his staff were able to convince his son to stick it out.

Williams appeared in one game this season, completing one pass for 17 yards. Because he played in less than four contests, he was able to obtain a redshirt year.

Williams was the No. 5 Pro-Style quarterback and No. 77 overall recruit in the 2019 class, according to 247Sports' Composite Rankings.

He chose Miami after originally decommitting from Kentucky.

Miami split its quarterbacking duties between Malik Rosier and N'Kosi Perry this season. The Hurricanes finished the regular season with a 7-5 record and will play against Wisconsin in the Pinstripe Bowl.

Neither Rosier or Perry set the world on fire this fall, so Williams may be able to crack the starting lineup, or at the very least, earn more playing time, in 2019.
