Just a couple of days after revealing to a recruiting website that he would be signing with Indiana "this week or next," Taj Williams has done just that.
Indiana announced via a press release Thursday that the wide receiver has signed his National Letter of Intent and will play football for the Hoosiers in 2013. The signing comes on the heels of a visit to the school last weekend.
Williams becomes the 23rd and presumably final member of head coach Kevin Wilson's second IU recruiting class. And, at least on paper, it's one of his biggest.
Rivals.com had the Tallahassee high schooler listed as a four-star prospect, rated as the No. 25 receiver in the country and the No. 35 player in the state of Florida.
In addition to Indiana, Williams held offers from, among others, Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Miami, Mississippi State, Notre Dame, Ole Miss, South Carolina, UCLA and USC. In the days leading up to signing day, Williams told Rivals.com that Auburn was the front-runner for his services.
