Williams is the No. 15 prospect total and chose Oklahoma over LSU and Maryland. He’s a 6-foot-2, 210-pound prospect out of Gonzaga College Excessive College in Washington, D.C., and had virtually every main program after him at some level of his recruitment.
Williams — who made the announcement in an interview with CBS Sports activities — became as soon as the ideal-ranked uncommitted prospect at this level within the 2021 cycle.

Oklahoma and coach Lincoln Riley non-public made a title for themselves with switch quarterbacks within the previous with Baker Mayfield, Kyler Murray and, most lately, Jalen Hurts. Each Mayfield and Murray obtained the Heisman Trophy and non-public been chosen No. 1 total within the NFL draft.
That trend of switch quarterbacks main the offense will attain to a raze this season, though. Tanner Mordecai has a shot at the delivery job, nonetheless the workforce signed Spencer Rattler within the 2019 class, and Rattler looks to be the popular to grab the beginning location.
Take care of Williams, Rattler became as soon as the No. 1 twin-probability quarterback in his class. The workforce also signed ESPN 300 quarterback Chandler Morris, the seventh-ranked twin-probability quarterback in 2020, and is now jam to add Williams to that checklist.
