Alabama Defensive Back Enters Transfer Portal
According to Matt Zenitz of On3 Sports, Alabama redshirt freshman Kaine Williams has opted to enter the transfer portal. Williams was considered the top defensive back in the state of Louisiana in the class of 2021.
Williams appeared in one game as a freshman in 2021 on special teams against the Georgia Bulldogs. He chose the Crimson Tide over LSU, Texas A&M, Auburn and others but now will look to play college football elsewhere.
The 6-foot-2 safety was a four-star prospect out of John Ehret High School in Marrero, Louisiana. As a high schooler he recorded 13 interceptions and forced seven fumbles in four years at John Ehret.
Williams did participate in spring practice with the Crimson Tide and in the annual A-Day game. He recorded one tackle and one pass break-up in the scrimmage. Williams is the 17th Crimson Tide player to enter the transfer portal since the start of the 2021 season.
