Four-star QB Demond Williams flips from Arizona to Washington

Demond Williams, a four-star quarterback prospect in the Class of 2024, is following coach Jedd Fisch from Arizona to Washington.

Williams previously committed to the Wildcats but announced Sunday that he will play for the national runner-up Huskies next year.

Williams, a native of Chandler, Ariz., told On3 the “family feel that was brought over from Arizona” by Fisch to Washington was part of his decision to flip.

Listed anywhere between 5-foot-9 and 5-foot-11, Williams was the No. 16 quarterback in the 247Sports composite rankings for the 2024 recruiting cycle.

His move is the latest ripple effect of the retirement of Alabama legendary coach Nick Saban. Kalen DeBoer left Washington to take the Alabama job, prompting the Huskies to hire Fisch after he led Arizona to a stellar 10-3 season and an Alamo Bowl win over Oklahoma in 2023.
