Jameson Williams' list of potential transfer destinations includes Ohio State's hated rival and the team that beat the Buckeyes in last season's national championship game.

The former Ohio State wide receiver, who entered the transfer portal on Wednesday, told 247Sports' Allen Trieu that he has “narrowed his focus” to seven schools: Alabama, Ole Miss, Texas A&M, Florida, Michigan State, USC and Michigan.

Per Trieu, Williams and his family “say it is a matter of days before a decision will be announced, 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 said. "I'm not sure on a date yet [for a commitment] but it will be pretty soon."

Williams told Trieu that a primary consideration in his decision will be how those schools plan to use him in their offense. His decision to transfer from Ohio State came after he was replaced in the first-team wide receiver unit by Jaxon Smith-Njigba this spring, with Garrett Wilson moving outside to take Williams' place in the starting lineup.

That said, Williams told Trieu that he has no hard feelings toward Ohio State and its coaching staff.

"I loved my time there," he said. "I appreciate the coaching staff and the friendships I made. There is nothing personal about it, I just had to do what was best for myself."
