Indiana lands four-star WR for 2013 class

Kevin Wilson AP

Nearly a month after National Signing Day, Indiana has added a touted Florida high school player to its 2013 recruiting class — probably.

Wide receiver Taj Williams announced on Twitter Monday that he has committed to play football for the Hoosiers.  The Tallahassee product later confirmed to Peegs.com that he has “committed to Indiana” and “will be signing sometime this week or next.”

As Williams has yet to sign his National Letter of Intent, IU is not permitted to discuss Williams’ commitment.

In addition to Indiana, Williams held offers from, among others, Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Miami, Mississippi State, Notre Dame, Ole Miss, South Carolina, UCLA and USC.  In the days leading up to signing day, Williams told Rivals.com that Auburn was the front-runner for his services.

That recruiting website had the 6-4, 166-pound Williams listed as a four-star player, rated as the No. 25 receiver in the country and the No. 35 player in the state of Florida.

    Does anyone have any inside scoop on FSU’s pursuit of Williams? It seems odd that, after losing Stacy Coley to UM, that FSU didn’t go all in on this guy. A Tallahassee product? We clearly aren’t building a big enough fence.

    The last I read from Taj Williams high school coach was that he & fellow 4* teammate LB James Hearns weren’t going to qualify & needed a year in prep school. This signing is probably one of those things where Taj never steps foot on campus.

    Hey Duke, maybe FSU did go all-in on this guy and he doesn’t want to go to FSU.

    ” 6-4, 166-pound”

    That sounds really skinny. Better get that guy in the weight room or he won’t survive the college game.

    What? 4 start WR with SEC teams looking at him and he goes to Indiana. Really? He must not care about his career. The B1G 10 blows and he went to one of the traditionally horrible teams.

    don’t look now but Wilson is slowly but surely building a football program IU. this class will set the foundation for future and better classes. he is doing it the right way from the ground up instead of the quick fix way. if they had anybody who could tackle on defense they would have won at least 6 games last year. may not sound like much but when you have nothing resembling a division 1 football program for years it is a start. they will be improved and better next year but look out in 2014 and beyond! remember this not a rebuilding job but a total start up job since there was nothing there when he got there.
