    TWO RED FLAGS

    When Ohio State offered a scholarship earlier this month to Georgia four-star quarterback Jarren Williams, most pegged him to be the heir apparent to Emory Jones if he were to eventually flip to Alabama. But a lot has changed for the former Kentucky commit in the meantime, and Miami has become the favorite to land his pledge following an official visit two weekends ago.

    Nevertheless, the Buckeyes welcomed the 6-foot-2, 206-pound Williams to campus for an official visit for Saturday's game against Illinois. And despite the staff showing him how he'd fit into the offense and explaining in detail the situation with Jones, sources close to the program have told Eleven Warriors they believe it's still an uphill battle in hurricane-force wind.

    Yes, Ohio State will have an open quarterback competition this spring with J.T. Barrett's departure. But sitting behind some combination of Dwayne Haskins, Joe Burrow and/or Tate Martell — coupled with the uncertainty surrounding Jones — doesn't make for the most intriguing pitch when Williams will likely see the field much quicker at Miami. And unless Jones flips sooner rather than later, which is still far from a certainty, the staff can't and won't go all-out for Williams like they would if they were currently without a quarterback.

    Williams will be at Auburn for the Iron Bowl this coming weekend, after which I anticipate he'll set an announcement date or make his decision known — and all signs point to the Hurricanes being the choice.
