Spencer Rattler has a new home.
On Monday, it was announced that the former Oklahoma Sooners QB would be taking his talents to South Carolina.
Rattler, the preseason Heisman Trophy favorite who was benched early in the season, announced last month that he would be entering the NCAA transfer portal.
“Sooner Nation: Thank you for allowing me to be a student-athlete at this prestigious institution,” he wrote, while also thanking teammates and coaches. “We won several games together and made memories that I will cherish forever.”
“Thank you again, Oklahoma,” he concluded. “I will miss you.”
Rattler started all 11 games as a redshirt freshman last season, throwing for 3,031 yards and 28 touchdowns with seven interceptions. He was the AP first-team and All-Big 12 quarterback.
Things did not work out for him as he found himself benched for the second straight year during the Sooners’ rivalry game with Texas.
Last year, he reentered the game and led OU to a victory. This season, true freshman Caleb Williams came in and rallied the team to a win. Rattler was never expected to get the starting job back.
