Earlier today, 2021 five-star QB Caleb Williams revealed the top five schools on his recruiting list. Unsurprisingly, Oklahoma - which has been the frontrunner for Williams for a while - made the cut. Today he gave a status update on his recruiting.

In a feature for Sports Illustrated's All on the Line, Williams spoke about each of the five schools on his list. Naturally, he had glowing things to say about all of them. But when it came to the Sooners, he had special praise reserve for Oklahoma's history and head coach Lincoln Riley.

"To Oklahoma, I mean, kinda speaks for itself," he said. "Their history and what Coach (Lincoln) Riley has done these past three years—Baker (Mayfield) to Kyler (Murray) then to Jalen Hurts, then to whoever else is next and then maybe me."

As of writing, Williams has had multiple visits with the Sooners and their staff.

247Sports' Crystal Ball Predictions have 12 of 15 analysts picking him to ultimately join Oklahoma.

If he joins in 2021, there's a very good chance that he'll be in a prime position to compete for the starting job as a freshman.

Will Caleb Williams wind up with the Sooners, or are one of the other four teams on the list destined to get him?
