Spencer Rattler’s dad drops truth bomb on son’s Oklahoma future
After struggling mightily to get the offense going against Texas in Week 6, Oklahoma Sooners head coach Lincoln Riley benched starting quarterback Spencer Rattler in favor of Caleb Williams.
Williams was brilliant and Rattler has sputtered at times throughout the year. Williams’ performance for the Sooners against the Longhorns has many speculating about Rattler’s future with Oklahoma. Per OUdaily.com, Rattler’s dad spoke out on all the possibilities.
“For right now, he’s focused on working for this team, and we’ll see what happens after Jan. 10,” Mike Rattler said. “Hopefully he’ll be playing in the national championship on Jan. 10, and then after that we’ll evaluate where he is as far as if any teams are interested in him in the NFL, we’ll consider that.”
While the focus for the Sooners and apparently Rattler is winning a title this year, his dad did mention all options are on the table after the season.
“If we think, ‘Hey, you know what, we may ought to do another year or something at Oklahoma, wherever’… we’re leaving our options open whereas that is concerned, but for the most part, right now, we don’t even talk about it, because he’s got a task at hand to deal with.”
Next up for the Sooners is a date at home with TCU where Oklahoma enters as 13.5 point favorites. The only question left is who Lincoln Riley will start at quarterback.
