If there’s going to be a Justin Fields sweepstakes then Oklahoma won’t be in it according to five-star signee Spencer Rattler. In an article published by 247Sports, Rattler says that he’s the only new quarterback coming to OU in 2019.
“Coach Riley told me he’s not taking any transfer QB anytime soon,” Rattler told 247Sports’ Steve Wiltfong. “I’m not really worried about anybody. If they come here, they have to compete just like me and I’m ready go.”
Rattler goes on to say that Riley specifically told him he’d be the only quarterback signed in 2019. If true, that basically puts an end to any speculation that the Sooners would accept Justin Fields or any other quarterback transfer.
Rattler, a 5-star prospect, was the nation’s top pro-style quarterback prospect for the 2019 recruiting class. The Phoenix, AZ (Pinnacle High School) native chose Oklahoma over thirteen other scholarship offers. He was also named the 2018 National High School Quarterback of the Year by the National Quarterback Club.
