Spencer Rattler announces transfer to South Carolina


Former Oklahoma quarterback Spencer Rattler is transferring to South Carolina to play for head coach Shane Beamer.

The 6-foot-1, 200-pound Rattler will join the South Carolina program with three years of eligibility remaining, though he’ll be listed as a redshirt junior for the Gamecocks.

Rattler redshirted during his first season in Oklahoma and his second season doesn’t count against his eligibility due to COVID.

During his time at Oklahoma, Rattler completed 361 of 515 passes for 4,595 yards and 40 touchdowns with 12 interceptions.

Rattler did his best work as a redshirt freshman in 2020 when he was named national freshman of the year by CBS Sports and first-team AP All-Big 12 after completing 214 of 317 pass attempts for 3,031 yards and 28 touchdowns with seven interceptions.

A former five-star prospect, Rattler was ranked the No. 1 dual-threat quarterback and the No. 13 overall prospect in the 2019 class, according to Rivals, when he signed with Oklahoma.

A Phoenix, Ariz. native and Pinnacle High School grad, the All-American Bowl selection, threw for an Arizona state record 11,083 yards in his high school career with 116 passing touchdowns. He also rushed for over 1,000 yards and 14 touchdowns.
