More good news continued for the Miami Hurricanes on Monday as they were able to land a commitment from 2023 quarterback Emory Williams.
Williams is a three-star quarterback. He was recruited by offensive coordinator Frank Ponce, and had a sizable offer sheet.
In addition to Miami, he also held offers from Arkansas State, Indiana, and USF.
This is a commitment that has come full circle in a way. Miami was one of the first programs to extend Williams an offer back in April. Now, they have him in the fold.
Williams passed for 2,202 yards, 18 touchdowns and two interceptions in nine games played for Milton High School last year. He had a 64% completion percentage, and passed for 245 yards per game. He also had four rushing touchdowns on the year.
Williams is a gun-slinger. He throws the ball with tremendous accuracy, particularly on the deep ball. This is in line with the types of other quarterbacks the Miami Hurricanes have recruited. He is a pass-first quarterback, and doesn’t have the running skills that many college football quarterbacks have in today’s game. He is not that type of quarterback.

Miami Hurricanes are building out their offense
When you look at the 2023 recruiting class, Miami is doing a good job of trying to round out the entire offense. They have tight ends in Jackson Carver and Reid Mikeska. They also have a wide receiver in Lamar Seymour. One of the traits of a good recruiting class is adding talented pieces that fit with each other. I am seeing a plan on the offensive side of the football.
With this commitment, the Miami Hurricanes now have eight in the 2023 class. The class itself ranks 29th overall nationally and seventh overall in the ACC. I expect that number to improve as the weeks and months go on.
The Miami Hurricanes got a player that they have been wanting. This is a classic case of the coaching staff identifying a player, and making sure they get him. Williams is a type of player that can become a cornerstone of a class. Now, it’s all about the results.
