Unsurprisingly, Oklahoma quarterback Spencer Rattler has decided to put his name into the transfer portal.
Rattler was the five-star recruit who took over as the Sooners’ starter in 2020 after Kyler Murray was the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft. Rattler showed flashes of brilliance during the 2020 season and entered 2021 as one of the betting favorites for the Heisman Trophy.
However, Rattler struggled in the early going this season and was benched by now-former Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley in favor of another five-star recruit, Caleb Williams.
Williams replaced Rattler midway through Oklahoma’s game against Texas and led an epic come-from-behind win. From there, Williams held onto the starting role for the remainder of the season and Rattler faded into the background.
