Quarterback Caleb Williams making early impression on Sooner teammates

Quarterback Caleb Williams making early impression on Sooner teammates

The hype machine surrounding new Oklahoma quarterback Caleb Williams may have to take a year-long hibernation.

If things go to plan, the No. 1 overall player in last year’s Sports Illustrated All-American’s SI99 will back up Spencer Rattler, then have a good chance to take control of Lincoln Riley’s offense after Rattler is playing on Sundays.

In the meantime, the highly touted quarterback from Washington, DC, is turning heads early on at OU’s spring practices.

“He’s got a good skill set. Talented player, confident,” Rattler said during a Zoom press conference on Wednesday. “He’s done a pretty good job up to now. Me being the older guy, I try to take him under my wing and teach him the ropes of everything and kind of help him throughout everything.”
