The 2024 Alabama Football recruiting class just got a massive bump as WR commit Ryan Williams has reclassified from 2025 to 2024. Williams will become the third five-star in the 2024 recruiting class which is ranked fourth before factoring in his ranking. Ryan Williams was ranked the top wide receiver and fourth prospect overall in the 2025 recruiting rankings.

While the top-ranked class of 2025 will take a hit Williams will boost the 2024 class with an opportunity to make a significant impact from his first day on campus. After reclassifying Williams will become the fourteenth-ranked player in the 2024 class becoming Alabama Football’s top-ranked recruit in the class. The 2024 class is now loaded with offensive talent as they now have a five-star quarterback in Julian Sayin, a five-star receiver in Ryan Williams, and a four-star tight end in Caleb Odom.

This news was expected as Williams teased on social media that he had a major announcement coming today. The Alabama native Williams has been committed since October of 2022, winning the Mr. Football and Gatorade Player of the Year in 2022. Over his three seasons in high school, Williams totaled 5,000 All Purpose yards and 80 touchdowns.

Alabama Football: Recruiting Frenzy for the next week.

This next week for Alabama Football will be hectic with recruiting news and potential flips to or from the Tide. Nick Saban spent the last week traveling the country meeting with commits and players he’s trying to flip before hosting recruits in Tuscaloosa this weekend. We’re currently nine days away from Early Signing Day where you can expect many of the nation’s top recruits to sign letters of intent so they can join their teams for bowl prep. With a few weeks before Alabama Football’s playoff matchup with Michigan I’d expect the next nine days to be a hard push as Nick Saban attempts to once again land the Nation’s top recruiting class.
