Jameson Williams Has Been a Standout in Summer Workouts
As the Crimson Tide approach fall camp, Jameson Williams has reportedly been impressing the Alabama staff all Summer. Williams transferred to Alabama from Ohio State in early May.
Williams signed with the Buckeyes as a four-star prospect and the 13th-ranked wide receiver according to 247Sports in the 2019 recruiting cycle. In 22 career games for Ohio State, he hauled in 15 receptions for 266 yards and three touchdowns. Williams started six games in 2020 and averaged 17.1 yards per catch.
A former track star in high school, Williams is recognized as one of the fastest players in the country. He holds the Missouri state record in the 300-meter hurdles and won two state track and field titles. His elite-level speed and quickness will be able to help fill the void left by Jaylen Waddle.
Williams spoke earlier this summer about his decision to transfer to Alabama. "Those guys were hungry," Williams said. "I saw them on film and then being on the sideline whether it was offense or defense. Those guys were hungry and really wanted it. That's the mindset I have. I feel like I will fit right in with them."
"I felt like it was the best situation for me out of all the other schools," Williams said. "I had a great relationship with the coaches there from the past. Everything really just fell into line at the right time."
