Instant Impact: Jesse Williams

Jesse Williams is a 6'5" 340 pound defensive lineman that comes to Alabama from Arizona Western College. He only has two years of eligibility left, but the last time Saban brought in similar prospect, Terrance Cody, it worked out pretty well.

Jesse was rated as the number 2 JUCO prospect in the nation by rivals.com

Jesse is originally from Brisbane, Australia where he is a bit of a folk hero. A camera crew from Australia even came to Tuscaloosa this summer to film a report on him playing American football. He stands out in a crowd with his mohawk and dozens of tattoos

He is similar in size to Cody, but clearly has more agility and quickness, and is already assumed to be the immediate backup to both Josh Chapman at tackle and Ed Stinson at end. Don't be surprised to see this kid come in and make a similar impact to Cody, who was an instant All American and is now becoming a really good player in the NFL
