One major college football program appears to be out in the race for Georgia five-star freshman quarterback transfer Justin Fields.

Oklahoma has been one of the schools mentioned for the former No. 1 quarterback recruit, but the Sooners don't appear to be in line for a transfer QB.

247Sports spoke with Oklahoma five-star quarterback recruit Spencer Rattler.

The Sooners' incoming QB said Lincoln Riley told him he won't be taking any transfer QBs anytime soon.

From the report:

Rattler, on hand for the All-American Bowl, told 247Sports that Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley said Rattler would be the only quarterback the Sooners this year. That includes transfers. Oklahoma has been rumored as a potential landing spot for Georgia five-star transfer Justin Fields.

"Coach Riley told me he’s not taking any transfer QB anytime soon,” Rattler told 247Sports' Steve Wiltfong. “I’m not really worried about anybody. If they come here, they have to compete just like me and I’m ready go.

“He’s told me I’m going to be the only quarterback I’ll sign in 2019. Not a lot of coaches do that.”

Ohio State is believed by most experts to be the favorite for Fields, who has already reached out to Dwayne Haskins.

Fields is expected to appeal the NCAA for immediate eligibility in 2019.
