FSU Recruiting: JUCO offensive tackle Jay Williams chooses Noles

FSU recruiting stays hot on the recruiting trail with its second commitment in as many days for the 2019 recruiting class.

We’ve long talked about FSU recruiting seems to heat up in calculated spurts under Willie Taggart and right now seems no different.

Thing got started Sunday night when three-star linebacker Kevon Glenn choose the Noles over 40+ other schools to help fill a position of need.

A day later JUCO offensive tackle Jay Williams chooses the Noles and helps fill a monster position of need on the offensive line. Williams checks in at 6’6″ and 290 pounds hailing from Moreno Valley, California.

Williams was supposed to announce his decision on Wednesday during the early signing period but decided to move the announcement up. Check it:

He choose the Noles over the likes of Texas, Louisville, Indiana and Missouri.


FSU fans are aware of how terrible the offensive line was in 2018 with injuries and lack of depth forcing players to play positions that were not natural fits.

Offensive tackle is a huge need and Jay Williams brings good size and experience to the position and should be able to contribute immediately after enrolling in the spring.

He’s the second offensive lineman in the 2019 recruiting class and FSU is in the mix for four-star William Putnam as well as a couple others.

The hope is FSU can take a couple JUCO players and a true freshman that’s physically ready to play coupled with some players currently on the roster to field a decent offensive line in 2019.

Frankly, just some new bodies period should be an upgrade as last season was an absolute disaster. However, current commits and targets seem to believe they will be the class to help turn things around.
