Nearly a month after National Signing Day, Indiana has added a touted Florida high school player to its 2013 recruiting class — probably.
Wide receiver Taj Williams announced on Twitter Monday that he has committed to play football for the Hoosiers. The Tallahassee product later confirmed to Peegs.com that he has "committed to Indiana" and "will be signing sometime this week or next."
As Williams has yet to sign his National Letter of Intent, IU is not permitted to discuss Williams' commitment.
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.
That recruiting website had the 6-4, 166-pound Williams listed as a four-star player, rated as the No. 25 receiver in the country and the No. 35 player in the state of Florida.
