No. 1 Recruit Caleb Williams: 'This Has Been My Dream'
Caleb Williams is the top quarterback prospect in the 2021 class with scholarship offers from elite programs coast to coast before committing to Oklahoma on July 4. He has agreed to give Sports Illustrated exclusive access into his world by chronicling everything from his experience as a high profile recruit to his home life and preparation for his college career. This is 'All on the Line.'
Welcome back, everybody, to Caleb Williams: All on the Line.
Starting it off, I'm back home from being in the lab for about a month, month and a half, however long I was back. It was tough, it was really tough, dealing with Coach Mark every day. Twice a day. Sometimes working out three times a day. It's going to be, obviously, worth it. I feel really good now that I did it. Body feels good. My conditioning. Kinda fine-tuning the work of Coach Mark and Coach Baucia.
Been throwing a lot with Coach Baucia. Making sure my feet are right, arm slots, everything is kind of on point.
I'm back home in Norman. I flew in last night around 10 or 11 o'clock at night.
I told y'all I had something exciting to share coming up...
I am officially dual-enrolled at Oklahoma and Gonzaga. Starting next week, I will be a full-time student at both places, which allows me to be a student-athlete at Oklahoma, immediately.
I want to give special thanks to Gonzaga for all they've done for me. The administration, for even allowing me to do this, because they've never done this -- ever. I really appreciate Gonzaga for doing this, and obviously OU for also allowing me to do this. Also, the NCAA, for giving me clearance for dual-enrollment, to be a full-time student at both places and to be able to play right away at OU.
That means now I finally, officially, get to start learning the playbook and get into the lab with Coach Riley, all the strength coaches, like Coach Wylie and all of them.
I'll also get to be with my college professors now. It's pretty cool to be in this position, it's pretty tough, will be really tough doing double school with a new playbook -- especially in college -- but this is a dream. I recognize this is gonna be crazy tough, but the road is rarely easy when you are chasing your dreams.
This has been my dream, to be in this position, and I smile every time I look at my schedule or think about it. I have a little smirk on my face. This is what I've always wanted and it's a big step towards my continued pursuit of this dream that I have.
OU it's happening...
