After he announced his decision to enter the NCAA transfer portal, former Oklahoma quarterback Caleb Williams quickly became one of the most highly-sought-after prospects in the 2022 pool.

According to Oklahoma insider Dean Blevins of OKC-KWTV Sports, Williams has narrowed his options down to two schools: USC and LSU.

From the second Williams entered the portal, USC became one of the frontrunners to land him. Former Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley, who gave the freshman quarterback a starting job in Norman, is now the leader of the Trojans' program in Southern California.

Newly-hired LSU head coach Brian Kelly and the Tigers are also reportedly involved in a "bidding war" for the future Heisman favorite.

Through his first season with the Sooners in 2021, Williams threw for 1,912 yards, 21 touchdowns and four interceptions.
