Arizona's latest commitment came Thursday with the succinctness and simplicity that would make him the envy of any newspaper reporter.

"I'm Jamari Williams," he tweeted, "and I'm fully committed to University of Arizona." 

Williams, a three-star offensive line prospect, decommitted from Louisville just hours earlier. He chose the UA over dozens of other schools, including Boston College, Purdue, Mississippi State, Pitt, Kentucky, Central Florida and others. 

The 6-foot-4-inch, 275-pound Williams is listed as the No. 44 guard in the country by 247Sports.com. His Rivals.com rating of 5.5 is third on the UA's recruiting class, behind quarterback Grant Gunnell and linebacker Kwabena Watson. He is the 14th player — and third offensive lineman — to commit to Arizona's 2019 class. He joins Marana's Jordan Morgan and JuCo product Rocky Aitogi. 

Williams is a senior at Cardinal Gibbons High School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The South Florida Sun Sentinel listed Williams as the 19th-best college prospect in Broward County. The newspaper reports that Williams is the first player from the region to commit to the UA since 2012, when Key West receiver Clive Georges joined Rich Rodriguez's first recruiting class. Safety Tellas Jones, from Miami, signed with the Wildcats in 2011.
