Jameson Williams signs with Ohio State.

The future stars of Ohio State football officially begin their college careers, as standouts from all over the country put pens to their National Letters of Intent.

With two elite wide receivers in the 2019 class, Ohio State will not have to look far for offensive weapons as Jameson Williams put pen to paper in favor of the Buckeyes today.

The Williams File

  • Class: 2019
  • Size: 6-foot-1, 169 pounds
  • Pos: WR
  • School: Cardinal Ritter (St. Louis, MO)
  • Composite Rating: ★★★★
  • Composite Rank: 24 (WR)

With several wide receivers leaving after this season for Ohio State, re-stocking the cupboard was essential this cycle.

Williams was first offered by Ohio State in August of 2017, and immediately became the favorite to land his pledge. The Buckeyes had signed two St. Louis wide receivers in the 2018 class, Kamryn Babb and Cameron Brown.

Williams made his first trip to campus for the 48-3 win over Michigan State in November of 2017, 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 committed to Ohio State in late September, and despite Urban Meyer's retirement announcement, held strong to the Buckeyes, thanks in large part to major work by Ryan Day and Brian Hartline.

With Meyer retiring, there were thoughts that Williams could flip (like every commit), but he put those fears to rest with a simple tweet.

Williams is a freak athlete off the football field as well. Competing for Cardinal Ritter in last year's state track meet, Williams took first place in Class 3 won both the 400-meter dash (48.68 seconds) and the 300-meter hurdles (37.47) events. He also took second in both the 100 and 200-meter dashes.
