Home High School Report: Alabama could land Ohio State WR transfer Jameson Williams

Report: Alabama could land Ohio State WR transfer Jameson Williams


Jameson Williams could have his next destination very soon. The former Ohio State Buckeyes wide receiver entered the transfer portal in late April.

According to Matt Zenitz of AL.com, Williams could opt for Alabama as his next destination. 247Sports’ Midwest Recruiting analyst Allen Trieu previously reported Alabama, among others, were in the running for the former Ohio State wide receiver.

According to Zenitz, he could reveal his destination early this coming week.

“Sources: Alabama is a school to keep an eye on as a possible landing spot for ex-Ohio State WR Jameson Williams,” Zenitz tweeted. “Seems like he could potentially make a final decision and announcement on a transfer destination as soon as the early part of this week.”

Williams played in just 10 games over his first two years at Ohio State. Playing sparingly, Williams had 15 catches, 266 yards, three touchdowns and 17.7 yards per catch over two seasons. The numbers were there but the playing time wasn’t, leading to a request in change of scenery for Williams.

“I’m really looking forward to going somewhere and making an impact, showcasing my talent and helping that school become a better squad,” Williams told 247Sports. “I’m not sure on a date yet [for a commitment] but it will be pretty soon.”

Trieu also broke down Williams at the time of his recruitment to Ohio State and projected him to become a possible second or third round pick in the NFL Draft when he’s eligible.

“Wiry and skinny at the moment,” Trieu wrote in his scouting report. “Solid height and length, but still needs to fill out his frame. Exceptional explosiveness and speed. One of the faster players in the country with the track times to back that up. Eats up cushion quickly and is fluid in his breaks. Can make cuts without needing to throttle down too much. Can take short passes and go the distance from anywhere on the field. Also a dangerous return man. Still has to get stronger, which will help his blocking improve and his ability to break tackles in the open field, but he does show balance and elusiveness in the open field as well. He is not just a straight line guy.

“He projects as a kid who can go in the slot at times or play outside, but will be a playmaker and a scoring threat every time he touches the ball in college. He currently projects as a potential second day draft choice (2nd-3rd Round) but could go higher if he adds the necessary bulk and strength.”
