Have you shifted your focus to the Class of 2022 and beyond? Well the Alabama head coach Nick Saban and the staff did not. The Crimson Tide added an Ohio statewide receiver transfer on Monday Jameson Williams, a former Top100 recruit of the 2019 promotion from Saint-Louis, as he committed to UA on his social media account on Ole Miss, Texas A&M, Florida, Michigan, USC and Michigan. Williams joins a loaded wide receiver port for UA this cycle, including five stars Jacorey Brooks, An exceptional day Agiye Room, Product of Florida Christian Learyand Texas star JoJo Earle.
“It’s Bama because I felt the desire and the need for my Coaching skills (Nick Saban) as he explained everything to me, ”Williams told BamaOnLine. “And I also had a great relationship with Coach (Holmon) Wiggins from previous years. He made me really feel like a place I could be.
Add to that the fact that the Crimson Tide have seen four wide receivers selected in the first round of the NFL Draft over the past two years, and there was a lot of intrigue when it came to Bama.
“It’s just extra motivation that it might be me in the time to come,” said Williams, reflecting on the AU’s prowess in the NFL.
Alabama heavily recruited Williams out of high school. The Tide was a top pick for the Missouri native before opting for the Buckeyes.
“A few years ago when I was recruited I saw how the program was run and I really knew this was a place I could be,” said Williams. “Looking back, it played a big part (in my decision now).”
What should UA fans expect from the latest addition to the show?
“Everything I’ve got,” Williams said.
The 6-foot 1.5, 169-pound was ranked No. 13 wide receiver and No. 82 overall nationally, according to the 247Sports industry-generated composite rankings. In Columbus last season, Williams caught nine passes for 154 yards and two scores. It was rated the # 4 wide transfer receiver available by 247Sports.
That was Williams’ assessment of 247Sports coming out of high school:
“Stiff and lean at the moment. Solid height and length, but it still needs to fill its frame. Exceptional explosiveness and speed. One of the fastest players in the country with the track times to back that up. can make cuts without having to reduce throttle too much. Can perform short passes and go the distance from anywhere on the court. Also a dangerous returning man. He still needs to get stronger, which will help his blocking improve and his ability to break tackles on open court, but he also shows poise and elusiveness on the court. He’s not just a straight guy. will be a playmaker and a threat to score every time he touches the ball in college. He is currently projecting as a potential second-day draft pick (2nd-3rd round) but could go higher if he adds the necessary volume and strength.
He has three years of eligibility left.
