Four-star receiver officially signs with Indiana

Just a couple of days after revealing to a recruiting website that he would be signing with Indiana “this week or next,” Taj Williams has done just that.

Indiana announced via a press release Thursday that the wide receiver has signed his National Letter of Intent and will play football for the Hoosiers in 2013.  The signing comes on the heels of a visit to the school last weekend.

Williams becomes the 23rd and presumably final member of head coach Kevin Wilson’s second IU recruiting class.  And, at least on paper, it’s one of his biggest.

Rivals.com had the Tallahassee high schooler listed as a four-star prospect, rated as the No. 25 receiver in the country and the No. 35 player in the state of Florida.

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.

    Sometimes people just want a change of pace, and sometimes for good reason. Good luck to the kid, I say.

    If a change is what he is looking for, he won’t be disappointed.

    Just kidding around to the 100 or so Indiana football fans out there.

    Still can’t believe FSU let him slip through their fingers. What happened?

    With Gunner Kiel having just bolted the Irish, perhaps he will look at the 4-Star WR he now has available, plus the four 4-Star guys on defense, and choose to recommit. Those would be some serious upgrades for IU.
