COLUMBIA, S.C. — Since creating national headlines in December with his commitment to South Carolina, Spencer Rattler has blended in nicely with his new teammates.
The high profile quarterback transferred to Carolina from Oklahoma where his best season was in 2020 when he was named the CBS National Freshman of the Year after he threw for 28 touchdowns and more than 3,000 yards. After taking over for Jalen Hurts, Rattler helped the Sooners record a sixth straight Big 12 championship.
But the 2021 season saw Rattler lose his starting job and that led to a desire for a fresh start which the former Oklahoma assistant coach Shane Beamer offered.
Rattler and his former Oklahoma teammate, tight end Austin Stogner, will both make their Gamecock debut on September 3 when Georgia State comes to Columbia.
