Spencer Rattler Announces Decision to Transfer to South Carolina

NCAA Football: Nebraska at Oklahoma

Former Oklahoma quarterback Spencer Rattler announced his decision to transfer to South Carolina via social media on Monday evening.

He wasn’t the only Sooner to make the move to the Gamecocks, either. Tight end Austin Stogner announced his intention to transfer to South Carolina around the same time Rattler announced his commitment.

Rattler, who submitted his name to the transfer portal shortly after the Sooners ended their regular season, had taken several visits to top programs before announcing the decision.


At one point, UCLA was considered a front-runner to secure Rattler, especially after his former coach, Lincoln Riley, took the USC job.

Rattler started the season as a highly-touted Heisman candidate, but ultimately lost his job to Caleb Williams after the latter replaced Rattler in the second half of the Oklahoma-Texas game and led the Sooners to a come-from-behind win.

At Oklahoma, Rattler completed 70.1 percent of his passes, throwing for 4,595 yards, 40 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions.

Meanwhile, Stogner is looking for more production with the Gamecocks.

Stogner caught 40 passes, six of which were touchdowns, in his past two seasons with the Sooners.

The Sooners appear to be doing all right at quarterback in the wake of the hiring of Brent Venables as head coach. Williams is still with the Sooners and appears to be the incumbent starter for 2022. On Monday, Venables and his staff secured the commitment Under Armour All-American quarterback Nick Evers. Evers, who is part of the Class of 2022, decommitted from Florida after its coaching change and is the first commit of the Venables era.
