Two days after making the biggest decision of his life the top quarterback in the 2021 recruiting class details why he chose Oklahoma. In his latest blog entry for Sports Illustrated, Caleb Williams talked highly of Sooner head coach Lincoln Riley and his record of grooming quarterbacks. Obviously that was a big factor in Williams’ decision and at the end of the day it came down to where he felt the best situation was for him.
I chose Oklahoma, as most people know.
I just truly felt like it was best for me from the family aspect, for helping me get to my next goal after high school and then after college. Also, Coach (Lincoln) Riley is an awesome guy, an awesome coach. He’s done some pretty awesome things in his first couple years here, especially with his first three quarterbacks. They’ve all gone to the NFL so far. Two of them were first round, first picks, Heisman winners. Then Jalen Hurts was a Heisman finalist and ended up in the second round.
At the end of the day I feel like it was the best for me. It can help me achieve winning national championships at the college level and hopefully getting into the pros.Caleb Williams – Sports Illustrated
Williams became Oklahoma’s eleventh verbal commitment for the 2021 recruiting class. The 5-star quarterback chose the Sooners over finalists LSU and Maryland. It is widely expected that his decision will pull in other highly-touted recruits who he has networked with.
