The NCAA Transfer portal has allowed players to test their own free agency within their own college journeys. Spencer Rattler tested those waters.

The former Oklahoma Sooners quarterback has announced his new home. He has decided on Monday to finish his college experience with the South Carolina Gamecocks.

Rattler announced his decision around the time that former Sooners head coach Lincoln Riley announced his departure. Riley accepted the USC Trojans head coaching job.

This past season was a roller coaster ride for Rattler, who began the season as a Heisman candidate. He then fell out of favor with the coaching staff, as Caleb Williams took over.

Then, late in the season, Rattler returned to the starting role before his announcement to leave.

This past season, Rattler went 140 of 187 for 1,483 yards in 9 games. He had 11 touchdown passes and five interceptions.

In three seasons with the Sooners, he appeared in 23 games. He has gone 361 of 515 for 4,595 yards with 40 touchdown passes and 12 interceptions.

Rattler is already familiar with South Carolina head coach Shane Beamer, who previously worked with the Sooners. He was the tight ends coach at Oklahoma from 2018 through 2020.

As of this writing, barring a transfer, Rattler, Luke Doty, Colten Gauthier, and Jake Helfrich are the only quarterbacks on the Gamecocks roster for the 2022 roster. Jason Brown and Zeb Noland, who were quarterbacks on the 2021 season, have completed their eligibility at the end of the 2021 season.

Doty led the Gamecocks by going 86 of 142 for 975 passing yards in five games. He had five touchdown passes and three interceptions.
