Miami Hurricanes head football coach Manny Diaz made a pretty big announcement Monday morning, congratulating Jarren Williams for winning the starting quarterback job.

Diaz explained why Williams was chosen for the starting job:

“All three guys showed tremendous improvement and development, which is a credit to their hard work and the work of Dan Enos and his offensive staff,” Diaz said, per hurricanesports.com. “We believe we can win with all three guys, however, we feel like Jarren has the greatest upside due to his passing ability, his instincts and his determination.”

This is a significant announcement, because Williams beat out last year’s starter, N’Kosi Perry, and Ohio State transfer Tate Martell, who must be beside himself over this decision.

Williams, a redshirt freshman, brings a dual-threat package of physical traits and is a naturally gifted passer.
