It didn't take long for Jameson Williams to make a big play for Alabama.

In his very first game with the Crimson Tide after transferring from Ohio State this offseason, Williams used his elite speed to turn a deep ball from new Alabama quarterback Bryce Young into a 94-yard touchdown, already tying him for the second-longest touchdown reception in Alabama history.

His big play drew plenty of reactions from his former Ohio State teammates:

After catching just nine passes for 154 yards for the Buckeyes in 2020, Williams caught four passes for 126 yards in his first game at Alabama, leading the Crimson Tide in receiving in a 44-13 season-opening rout of Miami. 

Had Williams stayed at Ohio State, he was in line to be a backup wide receiver behind Chris Olave, Garrett Wilson and Jaxon Smith-Njigba this season. At Alabama, however, Williams is already setting himself up to be one of the Crimson Tide’s star playmakers.
