In a move that’s not nearly as surprising as Lincoln Riley’s departure for USC, Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Spencer Rattler has made it known via his Twitter account that he will enter the transfer portal.

After being replaced in the starting lineup by Caleb Williams amid an up and down start to the season, it was expected that Rattler would take his talents elsewhere. The only question was, would it be the NFL or another college team. With his decision to enter the portal, it looks like he’ll stick around for one more season to attempt to rebuild his draft stock that was once as high as the first overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Much like the rest of the 2021 season for the Oklahoma Sooners things didn’t go very smoothly for the preseason favorite to win the Heisman trophy. Rattler finished the season with 1,483 yards, 11 touchdowns and five interceptions, completing 73.7 of his passes and a 104.3 passer rating (NFL).

At this point in time that leaves the Oklahoma Sooners with Caleb Williams, Ben Harris, Ralph Rucker, and Micah Bowns as the quarterbacks on the depth chart. Of course with all of the transition occurring in Norman, there’s no telling what the quarterback depth chart will look like when the Sooners prepare for Spring practices in a few months.
