Last week, Caleb Williams announced that he was officially taking his talents to the USC Trojans.
This week, he appeared on Good Morning America to discuss his recent move.
During his conversation with Robin Roberts — Williams stated that he was not allowed to go to Alabama. That was instilled in him at a young age by his father.
“About 10 years ago, my dad actually told me to make a list of schools that I wanted to go to and he said you can’t have Alabama on there,” Williams said. “So, I ended up choosing schools like the West Coast schools out here. First was USC. Dreams do come true. Next, obviously, I had coach Riley and everybody else that came over from Oklahoma here. There’s a certain sense of comfort when you have people like that here who you’ve been around here for at least a year and talked to for more years before that.”
Williams made a huge name for himself during his freshman season when he replaced Spencer Rattler in the game against the Texas Longhorns. After taking the starting job, Williams completed 64.5 percent of his passes for 1,912 yards and 21 touchdowns. He also had 442 rushing yards and six touchdowns on 79 carries.
Now, he has high hopes of putting USC back on the map alongside Lincoln Riley.
“I want USC to be back to the old USC that everyone thinks of,” Williams told ESPN. “It’s been a rough couple of years, but we’ve got the right coaches and players in place. The guys want to win. We’re going to bring some other guys in that are going to be impact players for us.”
