Kaine Williams was a four-star safety from Marrero (La.) John Ehret high school when he committed to Alabama in 2021.

Williams entered the transfer portal on April 25th and following official visits to Kansas and Nebraska this week, he committed to the Huskers on Sunday.


Williams is the eighth scholarship defensive back Nebraska has added to their roster this off-season.

NU offered Williams just days after he announced publicly that he had put his name in the transfer portal. Nebraska added a number of mid-year defensive backs to their roster in January and it is anticipated that Williams can come in and compete for playing time immediately.


The Huskers are also playing host to Williams' teammate from Alabama - defensive lineman Stephon Wynn. Williams redshirted last year for Alabama but saw playing time in the regular-season finale against Georgia on special teams.

Nebraska football added another piece from the transfer portal, as Alabama defensive tackle Stephon Wynn Jr. committed to the Huskers over interest from Georgia Tech, Texas Tech and others, and officially visited Nebraska the weekend of May 14.

"Just a family decision," Wynn told Husker247 after his commitment on Sunday. "It's the best place for me to achieve my dreams and goals."

Wynn had largely been a reserve for the Crimson Tide during his time at Alabama. A redshirt senior, Wynn appeared in 21 games in his four seasons and recorded a combined 13 tackles. He played in seven games as a reserve this past season and tallied seven tackles.


The 6-foot-4, 307-pound Wynn was a Top-100 recruit out of IMG Academy during the 2018 cycle. A native of Anderson, S.C., he was the No. 3 strong-side defensive end and 74th overall prospect, according to the 247Sports Composite.

Wynn, who said he plans to arrive to Lincoln by early June, is determined to show he can log a lot of snaps, help the Huskers get over the hump and also achieve his goal of making it to the NFL.

On the same day that one of their incoming freshman asked for and was granted a release from his scholarship, the Iowa football program also lost a key wide receiver and the top return man in the Big Ten Conference.

Charlie Jones, who was named the winner of the Rodgers-Dwight Return Specialists of the Year, entered the NCAA transfer portal on Wednesday afternoon. He decided to return for an extra year granted by the NCAA due to Covid-19 and participated in spring ball for the Hawkeyes.

Last season he caught 21 passes for 323 yards and three touchdowns. He also averaged 25.4 yards per return on kickoffs last season, including a return for a touchdown against Illinois. Jones also averaged 7.7 yards per punt returns last season.

Jones was slated to be in the two deeps at wide receiver and the Hawkeyes were already relatively thin at the position, having already lost Tyrone Tracy to Purdue after the season. Iowa is now at six scholarship wide receivers on the roster, including Brody Brecht, who played baseball this spring, and incoming freshman Jacob Bostick.
