Ex-Ohio State WR Jameson Williams transferring to Alabama

Former Ohio State wide receiver Jameson Williams announced Monday he is transferring to Alabama.

He entered the transfer portal last week after he was unable to win a starting position in spring workouts. He caught 15 passes for 266 yards and three touchdowns in two seasons with the Buckeyes.



Williams posted two images on Twitter wearing a Crimson Tide uniform, with the caption “The Next Chapter.”

In his last game with Ohio State, he caught one pass for 14 yards in a 52-24 loss to Alabama in the national championship game on Jan. 11, 2021.

A 6-foot-2, 188-pound junior from St. Louis, Williams is eligible to play immediately as the Tide look to replace first-round NFL draft picks DeVonta Smith and Jaylen Waddle.
