Former four-star recruit Jameson Williams went from one college football powerhouse to another prior to this season, transferring away from Ohio State to join the Crimson Tide.
After watching Alabama rout his former Buckeyes squad in the national championship this past season, Williams clearly decided the grass was greener in Tuscaloosa. Just a couple months after the 52-24 title loss, the junior wide receiver joined the winning side.
While Williams has understandably drawn the ire of Ohio State fans with this decision, he seems pretty thrilled with his choice.
“I was real comfortable coming to Alabama,” he said, per On3 Sports. “It’s a great environment, I loved the environment, everything — I feel like I fit in well. With my mindset and the mindset of the guys I play with, my brothers. So I felt real comfortable.”
Williams has every reason to be thrilled about his new landing spot.
In his first game with the Crimson Tide against No. 14 Miami, the talented young wideout led the team with four receptions for 126 yards — including a massive 94-yard touchdown. Compare that to his nine receptions for 154 yards and two touchdowns through the entire 2020 season and it’s pretty obvious where he’s set to have a bigger impact.
Williams also referenced the success of his position in Tuscaloosa. With players like Julio Jones, Amari Cooper, Jerry Jeudy, DaVonta Smith and more, Bama has become well known for pumping out elite wide receiver talent.
“I feel like I’m a part of those guys when I committed to Alabama out of the transfer portal,” he said. “Once you’re Bama family, you’re family.”
