Ex-Oklahoma QB Rattler commits to South Carolina, Beamer


COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Highly touted quarterback Spencer Rattler will try to restart his college career with South Carolina in a major acquisition for Gamecocks coach Shane Beamer. Rattler threw for 28 touchdowns as a redshirt freshman for Oklahoma in 2020 before losing his starting job with the Sooners this season. He tweeted Monday night that he had committed to the Gamecocks. South Carolina went 6-6 this year, its first season under Beamer. The coach spent three years at Oklahoma as an assistant under Lincoln Riley. Rattler was considered a candidate for the Heisman Trophy before the 2021 season began, but Caleb Williams supplanted him as the starter.
