Oklahoma quarterback Caleb Williams entered the NCAA transfer portal on Jan. 3.
Williams attributed 'the recent changes' at OU to his decision. Since the news broke, many have drawn a parallel between Williams and USC, since Lincoln Riley's arrival to Southern California.
Fox Sports host Colin Cowherd weighed-in on the news, and called USC an 'obvious choice' for Williams.
"Caleb Williams can make more money short-term going to Auburn or Georgia. There is a certain SEC school, [that] I wont name, that is now giving one million dollars promised to five-star recruits," Cowherd said Wednesday on The Herd.
"USC is not going to get into a bidding war, [and] Michigan is not going to get into a bidding war. That is not what they are going to do. To me, [if you are] Caleb Williams, go to Lincoln Riley, [it's] obvious.
[At] Auburn or Georgia, he can get more NIL money. But I'm sorry, Kirby Smart is defense. Brent Venables hired a good O.C., I can see him staying there because I like who they hired as the O.C. But Lincoln Riley has a history of walk-on's, baseball players, Jalen Hurts, it's obvious right?"
Williams accumulated 1,912 yards, 21 touchdowns, and four interceptions during his freshman season at Oklahoma.
