Fresh off a remarkable 2021 season in which they used a bunch of transfers, the Utah State football program got commitments Wednesday from two more players who will change schools.

On Wednesday morning, Alabama wide receiver graduate transfer Xavier Williams announced his pledge to the Aggies, and Nevada defensive end Daniel Grzesiak did so in the afternoon.

Listed at 6-foot-1 and 190 pounds, Williams was a 4-star recruit out of high school in Hollywood, Florida, in the class of 2018 but played very sparingly for Alabama.

His best season came in 2020 when he appeared in six games and had three catches for 24 yards.

Before the 2021 season, Alabama head coach Nick Saban reportedly indicated that Williams would not play during the campaign because of an unspecified medical issue.

As for Grzesiak, he played in 34 games over three seasons for Nevada after redshirting in 2018 and tallied 42 tackles (29 solo, 13 assisted).

His best season came in 2020 when he finished with 16 tackles, including three for loss, and two sacks.

Also Wednesday, Rivals reported that USU linebacker Simon Thompson, who only made one appearance and did not compile any stats in three seasons in Logan, has entered the transfer portal.
