Ohio State could lose as many as seven wide receivers following the upcoming season, so restocking the cupboard is of the utmost importance this cycle.
The staff took another step toward addressing that turnover this afternoon as St. Louis Cardinal Ritter College Prep four-star wide receiver Jameson Williams announced his commitment to the Buckeyes.

The Williams File
- Class: 2019
- Size: 6-foot-2, 169 pounds
- Pos: WR
- School: Cardinal Ritter College Prep (St. Louis, MO)
- Composite Rating: ★★★★
- Composite Rank: 24 (WR)
A priority target throughout the 2019 cycle, the 6-foot-2, 169-pound Williams is considered the 24th-best wide receiver and No. 129 prospect overall in the class. He picked Ohio State over finalists Alabama, Nebraska, Oklahoma State, Oregon and UCLA.
A track star and one of the fastest players in the entire 2019 class, Williams looks to be a perfect compliment to current five-star Ohio State receiver commit Garrett Wilson.
The Buckeyes offered Williams last August and immediately became the favorite to land his pledge. Ohio State also landed Show Me State commitments last cycle from Christian Brothers College four-star wide receivers Kamryn Babb and Cameron Brown, though the latter began his college career at defensive back.
Williams made his first trip to campus for the 48-3 win over Michigan State last November, when he spent a considerable amount of time with head coach Urban Meyer and director of player personnel Mark Pantoni.
“The environment and the people outside of football (really stand out),” Williams told Eleven Warriors shortly thereafter.
Williams celebrated his 17th birthday earlier this spring with trips to see the Bruins, Buckeyes, Crimson Tide and Ducks, which suggested he was closing in on a decision.
Williams becomes the 15th member of Ohio State’s Dynasty ‘19 recruiting class, joining five-star Wilson at the wide receiver position. Eleven Warriors will have more on his pledge shortly.
