2015 Ohio Football Recruiting: RB Trae Williams flips from Bobcats, commits to Northwestern

Ohio lost a key pledge of their 2015 recruiting class on Sunday night. Trae Williams, son of defensive line coach Jesse Williams, announced that he will be attending Northwestern instead of Ohio.

Williams, a 3-star running back, who starred alongside future Ohio State quarterback Joe Burrow at Athens High, was widely considered the crowned jewel of the Bobcats recruiting class to date.

Although this is a very tough loss for OU, they did have 3-star WR Dominic Christian on campus for an official visit this weekend, and are in good shape with a few other targets.

Hustle Belt wishes Trae nothing but the best at Northwestern.
