The top quarterback prospect in the 2021 recruiting class is coming and he’s bringing an army with him. Oklahoma coaches and fans are all hoping that his arrival destination in Norman.
In his latest weekly blog post for Sports Illustrated, Williams stated that he’s turning up the recruiting efforts for guys to come play college football with him.
“You can’t hide if you want to be the best,” Williams said in his post.
“When I commit to one of these schools, I want it to be like fireworks going off,” Williams added. “That class of the school I choose will explode to the top, that type of thing. That type of explosion.”
After Williams talked highly of Oklahoma last week, it was Clemson who took the center of attention in this week’s post.
I love Coach Swinney, he’s a funny guy. We got on the call and were joking around, having a good time. But he said he wants Clemson to be the top one school. He wants Clemson to be the school for me and truly believes Clemson is the school for me and that it fits me well. That was his main message.Caleb Williams on the Clemson Tigers
Even so, when Williams got to the portion of his post where he dropped some of the names of guys he’s been connecting with, he threw out a couple of recruits that Oklahoma fans will be familiar with.
“I’ve been texting all the guys,” Williams wrote. “Christian Leary, Mario Williams, Kelvin Gilliam, Dallas Turner. I’ve been texting Kendal Daniels. I was texting J.T. (Tuimoloau) today. We were talking, he has a bunch of schools that I have but isn’t really a public guy. I’ve also been talking to (Amarius) Mims lately. He came out with his top group on April 1.”
Mario Williams is a top receiver prospect from Plant City, Florida. He gets mentioned by Caleb Williams quite a bit and most recruiting experts view him to be a lock for Oklahoma.
Kendal Daniels is #2 prep recruit from Oklahoma and released his Top 12 last week.
