SALT LAKE CITY — Tyler Huntley is headed to Baltimore. So, too, is Ty’Son Williams.

Huntley, the former Utah quarterback will join the Ravens as an undrafted free agent, the school announced minutes after the 2020 NFL draft ended Saturday, where he’ll be in the same quarterback room with reigning NFL MVP Lamar Jackson.

Williams, who played four games for BYU last season after joining the program as a grad transfer, will also sign with Baltimore, the Deseret News’ Jay Drew confirmed.

Huntley, named the 2019 first-team All-Pac-12 quarterback, played in 37 career games for the Utes, taking over the starting position in 2017. He went 23-10 as a starter while also setting the school record for career completion percentage (.672).

He capped his Utah career with a standout senior season, setting the school single-season records for completion percentage (.730), yards per pass completion (14.1), passing efficiency (177.55) and total offense yards per play (8.3) as the Utes advanced to the Pac-12 championship game for the second straight season and went 11-3 on the year, at one point winning eight straight games.

Williams transferred to BYU last offseason from South Carolina, where he rushed for 799 yards and five touchdowns in two seasons after one year at North Carolina.

He finished the season with 49 carries for 264 yards — a 5.39-per carry average — and three touchdowns while adding seven receptions for 47 yards.
