Meet the 2022 incoming Alabama football transfers

Nick Saban is one of the greatest coaches in the game of football. At the collegiate level, he is known as one of the strongest recruiters, consistently landing top-tier high school talent from all across the nation. Now, with the NCAA transfer portal, Saban’s dominance is translating into recruiting active collegiate stars.

Numerous transfers have been welcomed in over the years and helped the team compete at the highest level possible.

The players that have joined the storied program have seen a boost in their playing abilities and draft stock. Most recently, wide receiver Jameson Williams transferred into Alabama after two years of minimal playing time at Ohio State. In one year with the Crimson Tide, he became national sensation and a top-15 pick in the 2022 NFL draft.

Heading into the 2022 season, Alabama has added five key players via the transfer portal that will likely have an immediate impact on the team.
