Spencer Rattler
Redshirt sophomore
2021 team: Oklahoma

Rattler's background: Rattler was the No. 29 recruit in the 2019 class, a prized commit for the Sooners out of Arizona. He was the top dual-threat quarterback in that class and was supposed to make the transition from Jalen Hurts easier once Rattler stepped into the starting role. He threw for 3,031 yards, 28 touchdowns and seven interceptions in the 2020 season, but had a tumultuous ride in 2021. Rattler threw only 11 touchdowns and five interceptions this season before being replaced by true freshman Caleb Williams.

Where he could land: Since Rattler is from Arizona, the home-state schools could make sense for him, and both Arizona and Arizona State could use help at quarterback. Rattler was considering USC out of high school, but with Lincoln Riley going to the Trojans and the potential for 2023 five-star QB Malachi Nelson to choose USC, it doesn't seem likely that Rattler would end up there. Sonny Dykes had success with an Oklahoma transfer this season at SMU, and with Dykes now at TCU, that might be an option. It's still early, so the number of schools interested will start to emerge once the dust settles.
