Is Caleb Williams leaving or staying at the OU exchange? To know everything about the rumors of the quarterback going to USC, keep reading.
Caleb Williams is an American footballer playing for the Oklahoma Sooners.
The vacant seat of the head coach’s position at his team, following the departure of Lincoln Riley, left them in a lot of trouble. And then, there was a controversy surrounding the cornerbacks’ coach Roy Manning, OU’s assistant coach. He was recruiting on behalf of USC, encouraging the sooners’ defensive backs to tweet about it.
Even Oklahoma’s compliance office seemed to respond to the situation.

Is Caleb Williams Leaving Or Staying At OU Exchange?
Caleb Williams hasn’t decided whether he leaves or stays at OU Exchange.
However, he will decide after his team fills the position of the head coach that Lincoln Riley left. The Sooners got hit with decommitments and the transfer portal entries as a bowl game looms. A commitment from 2023 five-star quarterback Malachi Nelson flipped to the Trojans. Further, another five-star 2023 receiver Makai Lemon de-committed from Oklahoma.
As the team searches for a new head coach, not letting their five-star phenom Caleb leave is one of their main priorities. The quarterback helped the team make a thriller comeback from a 28-7 first-quarter deficit against Texas. Although he struggled, he had some good games this season.

Riley’s decision to leave for the USC Trojans took the team by surprise. President Joe Harroz, athletic director Joe Castiglione and Stoops gave their thoughts in a news conference on Monday. Stoops said that there isn’t a single man bigger than the program in its entire history.
However, the former head coach, who signed CeeDee Lamb, Hollywood Brown, Spencer Rattler, and Williams, did make the team strong.
A day after Riley’s leave, Quarterback Rattler announced his transfer portal entry. Further, Wide receivers Jadon Haselwood and Theo Wease and tight end Austin Stogner entered the portal.
Amid such a player and recruit crisis within the Sooners, everyone waits for Caleb to make a move.

Caleb Williams is silent on the situation within his team that is bleeding players and recruits.
I appreciate all the concerns about the situation but I am also happy for Coach Riley, mama Riley, Sloan and Stella for that huge opportunity ahead. That’s all I plan to say right now! #boomer

The whole thing began three days ago with the departure of Lincoln Riley from Oklahoma football. Since Riley is one of the best developers of the quarterback position in college football, there is a possibility of Caleb moving to USC Trojans.
Nonetheless. he has remained silent. On 30th November, he paid his tribute to Spencer Rattler, who entered the transfer portal, tweeting be great. And two days before that tweet, he expressed his happiness for the opportunities ahead of coach Riley and nothing more.
Not only Caleb, but people around him also decline to comment.
