Spencer Rattler enters transfer portal: What’s next as the Oklahoma star moves on after losing his job starting QB

Oklahoma lost his coach on Sunday when Lincoln Riley announced he was competing USC work, and now it’s lost opening day kick start midfielder and former favorite of Heisman. Redshirt second year Spencer Rattler announced Monday on Twitter that he has entered the transfer portal.

“Earlier Nation, thank you for allowing me to be a student-athlete at this prestigious academy,” he wrote. “Thank you to all of my teammates and coaches over the past three seasons. We won a number of games together and created memories that I will cherish forever. Special thanks to my family and friends. My friends have been supporting you Thank God for the football game It’s the ultimate team that sports and brings people and communities together like no other. At this moment, I would like to announce that I have decided to enter the transfer portal to further my academic and athletic career.Thank you again, Oklahoma.I will miss you.

Rattler threw 4,595 yards, 40 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in three seasons at Norman. He enters the 2021 season as the favorite player to win the Heisman Trophy after throwing 3,031 yards and 28 touchdowns in 2020 – his first season as the Sooners’ starting quarterback.

He started the first six games of the season before being benched against Texas after a poor game. Caleb Williams take over and start the remaining six games under the center.

Rattler is a five-star prospect and 11th overall player in the Class of 2019 at Pinnacle High School in Phoenix, Arizona. He was named MVP of the prestigious Elite 11 camp before his senior year of high school.

Where can the Rattler land? Let’s look at some potential destinations

Rebels are losing candidate Heisman Matt Corral come NFL Drafts, which left a big gap in the list. Coach Lane Kiffin and offensive coordinator Jeff Lebby have established themselves as two of the top attacking minds in the country and any right-thinking midfielder will jump on the pitch for one of two people.

Corral’s main backup this season is Luke Altmyer, but the former four-star prospect only managed to make nine passes on the cleanup mission. High level is rising John Rhys Plumlee led the SEC in rushing at 113.67 yards per game as a threatening double quartet in 2019 under coach Matt Luke, but has played extensively for Kiffin over the past two seasons. Plus, he’s a highly regarded baseball prospect, so it’s unlikely he’ll be playing after this season’s Major League Baseball Draft.

Simply put, Rebels picks every box for the Rattler.

The Gamecocks are coached by Shane Beamer, who was on the Sooners staff from 2018-20. That overlaps with Rattler’s first two seasons on the show. Beamer, who enjoyed a surprising 6-6 season in Year 1 despite never being a head coach in college before, is also looking for a new quarterback.

Luke Doty injured all year, Zeb Noland — a graduate assistant with Doty’s pre-injury program — will actually become a graduate assistant next season and transfer St. Francis Jason Brown threw eight touchdowns and six interceptions in seven games, four of which were early game.

Beamer is familiar with Rattler’s skill set and can provide a nice landing spot for Rattler to prove himself NFL scout.

Mustang just hired Rhett Lashlee, who did a great job as Miamiattack coordinator with Tyler Van Dyke this year and D’Eriq King in 2020. Lashlee is considered by many to be one of the top emerging offensive minds in the industry, and SMU could lose its rising senior. Tanner Mordecai to the NFL Draft after this season.

Lashlee’s use of a paced attack has, at times, benefited from a threatening dual midfield. The Rattler isn’t a ground weapon like the King, but more than just a runner ready and able to throw it across the field. He’s a great fit for a trainer and the system can maximize his skill set.

Rattler is from Phoenix and his home Wildcats are not a disaster. They have led 1-11 this season and the only player who throws more touches than intercepts is the wide receiver Jamarye Joiner, who completed only four out of ten 89-yard passes, two touchdowns and no interceptions.

Jedd Fisch could be in the hot seat in 2022 and it doesn’t look like he has any other hot full-back prospects up front. Not only can Rattler be able to revive a show in its own state, but he can also do it for a team in dire need of a boost.
