Many across the college football world have been looking at Oklahoma transfer Caleb Williams as the top transfer prospect currently in the transfer portal.

Williams had a breakout freshman campaign last year for the Oklahoma Sooners, after replacing then quarterback Spencer Rattler in the middle of the season. He finished his freshman season with 1,912 yards with 21 touchdowns and 4 interceptions. 

It was reported yesterday that Williams had narrowed his list of potential transfer schools to USC and Wisconsin, and it appears that Williams has made a decision.

Williams has told ESPN’s Pete Thamel that he will be transferring to USC to join his former coach at Oklahoma Lincoln Riley.

All the signs were pointing to this following the transfer of both USC quarterbacks Jaxson Dart and Kedon Slovis. USC was in need of a quarterback with their departures and now Lincoln Riley will get to bring in his guy.

Here are some reactions around the college football world on the reunion between Riley and Williams.

It was a move that many saw as all too predictable, it was the perfect fit all along for both Williams and Riley.

When asked why USC was the perfect fit, Williams had this to say to ESPN on his decision.

“I wanted to go somewhere I thought would provide me with the best development both on and off the field,” said Williams. “Getting to know Coach Riley and gaining familiarity with his offense definitely played a part in my selection, as well as already knowing some of the guys on the team.”

This move capped off an excellent transfer class for Riley at USC, bringing in 13 transfers to USC since he arrived in Southern California in November.
