Rich getting richer? Ohio State transfer Jameson Williams reportedly eyeing SEC heavyweight
Former Ohio State wide receiver Jameson Williams has narrowed his list of possible destinations, but one report suggests an SEC heavyweight is in the mix and then some.
Williams reported to 247Sports that after a hectic time of constant contact from coaches, he has narrowed his focus to Alabama, Ole Miss, Texas A&M, Florida, Michigan State, Southern Cal and Michigan. Among that group, sources reportedly told AL.com to “keep an eye on the Crimson Tide as a possible landing spot” for Williams.
The Missouri native finished last season with 9 catches, 154 yards and two touchdowns. That included a 45-yard touchdown catch during Ohio State’s College Football Playoff semifinal win over Clemson.
Both reports suggest that Williams could make his decision in a matter of days, not weeks or months.
“I’m really looking forward to going somwehere 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.”
He said specific offensive system is not a factor in his decision, but how he would be used is.
“Pretty much, they have been showing me their gameplans. The coaches have been telling me how they’d use me and building relationships,” he said. “The relationships are important. After that, it’s really just about how the coaches plan to use me.”
