Former top-500 recruit Moses Douglass is on the move. After committing to Kent State last week, the class of 2019 product and former Kentucky safety will continue his career in the SWAC.

On Friday, Douglass announced that he will continue his playing career with the Alabama A&M Bulldogs.

Moses Douglass was a Springfield (Ohio) High product who picked the Wildcats over scholarship offers from Alabama, Iowa State, Michigan State, Minnesota, Purdue, Tennessee, Wisconsin, and West Virginia. The top-20 prospect in Ohio played in 11 games during his Kentucky career and recorded five tackles.

Douglass’s dad, Maurice, was a defensive back at Kentucky from 1984-85 and went on to play 11 years in the NFL with the Chicago Bears and New York Gains.

Now Moses Douglass will look to make an impact at the FCS level as he continues his college football journey.

Jarren Williams could be QB1 at Alabama A&M

When Moses Douglass settles in at Alabama A&M, a player in the quarterback room will be a familiar face. In December, Jarren Williams announced his plans to move to the HBCU as the former blue-chip quarterback is on his fourth school in college.

Williams, of course, is a name of note for many in the Big Blue Nation.

The class of 2018 quarterback was a top-100 prospect out of Metro Atlanta and a player Kentucky aggressively recruited. The Lawrenceville (Ga.) Central Gwinnett originally committed to the Wildcats the summer before his junior season as Mark Stoops’ program logged a major recruiting win.

However, a big year would lead to a rating bump and more options developed for Williams.

Jarren Williams would then decommit from Kentucky in the spring of his junior year only to recommit to the Wildcats two weeks later. UK would hang onto that commitment for seven more months, but an official visit to Miami to see the Hurricanes thrash No. 3 Notre Dame with College GameDay in town changed everything.

Jarren Williams would spend two years at Miami under both Mark Richt and Manny Diaz. The quarterback started a few games but decided to transfer once the Canes landed Houston quarterback D’Eriq King from the transfer portal.

After one year in junior college, Williams moved to USF but would last just one season in Tampa playing for Jeff Scott. In December, the quarterback was on the move again and will be playing for Alabama A&M in 2022.

Down in Huntsville, Ala., a pair of big-time former Kentucky recruits will be playing together in the SWAC.
