In other football news, prized recruit Willie Williams surrendered to authorities Tuesday morning at Broward County Jail on charges of violating his probation.

Miami Athletic Director Paul Dee released this statement regarding Williams’s arrest.

“With the events of [Tuesday], including both the issuance of the arrest warrant for Willie Williams by the Broward County circuit judge and the filing of charges in Gainesville by the State’s attorney regarding the incidents of last weekend, the University of Miami has determined that it will delay the processing of the application for admission of Willie Williams.”

According to the Miami Herald, this means that UM has not made a final decision on whether or not it will admit Williams. His letter-of-intent is not official until the university admits the student.

The Hurricane will continue to update further developments in Williams’s situation.
