One of the highest-rated signees as part of Houston’s early class has decided to head in a different direction.
In mid-December, Levi Williams signed on as part of UH’s 2019 recruiting class. Thursday, the quarterback announced on Twitter that he has “decided the best thing at this time is not attend the University of Houston.”
Between Williams’ December signing and today, Major Applewhite was fired and Dana Holgorsen left West Virginia to take over. The Houston Chronicle noted that Williams met with Holgorsen earlier this week in San Antonio.
Williams is a three-star 2019 prospect, rated as the No. 40 pro-style quarterback in the country. Only three of UH’s 14 early signees were rated higher than Williams, and just one, wide receiver Ife Adeyi, comes from the offensive side of the ball.
