For more than a month, the overwhelming projections have been that Caleb Williams would be heading to Norman for his college career.

That became official on Saturday night, as the five-star quarterback from Gonzaga (Washington D.C.) High School has committed to Lincoln Riley and the Oklahoma Sooners.

Williams is ranked No. 4 overall and is the No. 1-ranked dual-threat quarterback in the country, and he gives the Sooners 10 commits in the 2021 class while boosting them from No. 33 to No. 20 in the 247Sports team rankings (192.73 points).

Williams, who earned Elite 11 MVP honors this week over other top quarterbacks such as Ohio State commit Kyle McCord, is now the star quarterback in Oklahoma's class who will be throwing to a pair of top-100 receivers already committed to the Sooners – Mario Williams (No. 37) and Cody Jackson (No. 95). 

Eleven Warriors will have more on this over the weekend, but Oklahoma is one of the final four contenders for Emeka Egbuka, the nation's No. 1-ranked receiver and No. 8-ranked overall prospect. Ohio State remains the favorite in Egbuka's recruitment, but Oklahoma could pose a threat, with Washington and Clemson as the other two finalists.
