According to NCAA rule, as a student-athlete, the only way I can speak with other schools and see who may offer and best preparation and development for my future career is by entering the portal.

He also stated in his post that he will taking a few days to relax and think about his next move, thanking everyone for the support they’ve shown him. In the 2021 season, Williams had 1,912 yards passing with 21 touchdowns and 4 interceptions.
