Florida WR Williams strongly suggesting via Twitter that he’s committed to IU

10 comments by   |   Monday, March 4, 2013 - 7:22 pm EDT

Taj Williams, a four-star wide receiver from Lincoln High School in Tallahassee, Fla., has been hinting on his Twitter account in recent days that he may commit to Indiana, and just posted “(shoutout) to my boy @chriscolston4 I will be rocking the #4 at #IU.”

What that suggests, in Twitter-speak, is that Williams will be wearing No. 4 at Indiana. Williaims has offers from most major programs in the southeast — Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Miami (Fla.) among them — and also had offers from Notre Dame and Southern California. The 6-foot-4, 166-pounder is rated the No. 25 wide receiver in the nation by Rivals.com

Still looking to confirm the commitment, and hope to have more later.

UPDATE: Williams has said enough on Twitter at this point that we can pretty much call it official.

UPDATE: Peegs.com is reporting the commitment.

Good get Coach Wilson and staff. Welcome to Hoosier Nation Mr. Williams as well as all 2013 commits. You are arriving at an exciting time in the program’s history. Get on campus, learn from the coaches and upper classmen and enjoy the ride. Go Hoosiers!

Let me get this straight… Indiana has just beat out Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Miami, Notre Dame, and USC for a football recruit. Really? REALLY??

Coach Wilson is a magician.

Scout doesn’t even show him with an IU offer, let alone in the list of schools he’s considering. That’s interesting.

The fact that we are even competing for top recruits let alone winning them is incredible to me given that four years ago, we didn’t have more than 4 or 5 D1 players on our roster! Welcome to IU, Taj and great job coaching staff!!!

Kevin Johns really performed as the lead recruiter for this player.

I remain cautiously optimistic, but will delay celebration until the ink on the LOI is dry. You just know that all the big programs are pulling out all the stops to snare this fine young player. If this turns out to be final, it will be very exciting news for IU football.

I agree Podunker about the ink on the LOI…

One thing is the options aren’t as plentiful after signing day….So, and the way that Peeg’s Matt Weaver said he enjoyed his official visit this week, I’m very hopeful
