“シーズンを待つだけ, そして, 彼の番号が呼ばれたら, 彼は準備ができています,” マイク・ジョヴァンド, Rattler’s personal QB told AZCentral.com.
Rattler arrived at Oklahoma as the top-ranked quarterback in the 2019 クラス. He ripped through the Big 12 last season, throwing for more than 3,000 ヤード, 28 touchdowns and another six scores on the ground. After guiding the Sooners to a 9-2 record and finishing the season ranked 6th in the nation, Rattler earned numerous post-season awards, including first-team All-Big12.
He’s been unable to repeat that success this fall, throwing for 11 touchdowns against 5 傍受, for what had been an uninspiring Sooner offense. His struggles opened the door for freshman sensation Caleb Williams, who has the Sooners rolling, and paved the way for Rattler’s eventual exit.
“シーズンを待つだけ, そして, 彼の番号が呼ばれたら, 彼は準備ができています,” Giovando 前記 of Rattler’s new role as a backup.
Giovando went on to confirm to AZCentral.com that this season’s remaining games will mark the end of Rattler’s time in Norman.
“しかし、私は意味します, of course he’s not going to be there after this year. I mean that’s a no-brainer. Whether or not we declare for the draft or find another school remains to be seen. We just want to keep getting feedback from where he may fall in the draft. And his No. 1 goal is to be a first-round pick one day, so he will do what’s best in the end so he can achieve that goal.”
The fourth-ranked Sooners have an open date in the schedule this weekend, then head to Baylor next Saturday afternoon.
