Spencer Rattler is prepping to take the SEC by storm this season. The former No. 1 quarterback in the On3’s 2019 Consensus Top Recruits is ready to reshape his image and his game at South Carolina this season. If he’s going to do that, though, he’ll need to take the next step in his game.
Rattler broke down what he could do to improve during South Carolina’s Media Day. He says his work is focused on his all around game more so than any individual aspect.
“I’m just focusing on every part of my game. I want to improve every part of my game,” said Rattler. “I can throw the ball, I can run when I need to. There’s not one single thing. I just want to improve.”
Rattler went on to say his time in college has helped him learn more than anything. From earning Oklahoma’s starting job and leading them to a Big 12 title to being benched by Lincoln Riley and entering the transfer portal, he’s experienced a lot in his three seasons. After all the ups and down, his new point of view has him ready to get back on the field and play football.
“I’ve learned a lot. I mean just being a quarterback, going through the portal, going through adversity. You see a lot and you learn a lot. Going through that has made me realize a lot of different things and see a lot of things differently,” said Rattler. “Other than that, I’m just a guy ready to work, ready to play and have fun.”
Many still have high expectations for Spencer Rattler as a college QB and a potential pro. His presence alone has elevated the outlook of South Carolina’s 2022 season. While Heisman Trophies and draft potential are all flattering, his mind is on what he is going to do over the next four months in Columbia.
