Spencer Rattler was not expected to be in Norman next year. However, after Lincoln Riley reportedly accepted the USC head coaching job, could that change?

Rattler, who is a redshirt sophomore, has three years of eligibility left. He began the year as the starting quarterback at Oklahoma and finished as the backup headed out.

As a former five-star, No. 1 quarterback recruit, Rattler has a lot of talent. There is no denying his potential, he just needs to put it all together.

The right fit with the right school and the right coach could make that happen. And if his father’s comments earlier this year, or his personal quarterback coach’s guarantee are to be taken as truth, Rattler is looking for that fit.

After Oklahoma’s regular season ended on Saturday with a loss to Oklahoma State, Rattler watch is officially on. He could hit the transfer portal any day now.

OR— because of the upcoming coaching change, Rattler may choose to stay. The Sooners have to make a significant hire to stay relevant with the move to the SEC on the horizon and he could choose to stay and compete with Williams (who says he is staying) for the starting job.

OR— Williams could follow Riley to USC and Rattler would be the favorite for the starting job.

OR — Williams could not like the coaching hire, transfer, and Rattler would be the favorite for the starting job.

The possibilities are endless.

It is easy to assume that Rattler is probably won his way out, but is it as fun? The internet is always a chaotic, wildly entertaining place after breaking news, and Riley’s move was no exception. People were going crazy.

That was also the case in regard to Rattler. Here are some of the best and craziest theories, jokes, and the rest:
