ESPN analyst Pete Thamel was on SportsCenter today and discussed Caleb Williams.
“So far, he’s visited USC and UCLA but he’s been on Zooms with a dozen other schools,” Thamel said. “The family is weighing their options and Carl Williams, his dad, told me last night NFL, not NIL, is the guiding light of what the family is doing . . . they want to go to the place where he’s best prepared to go to the NFL and ultimately be the No. 1 pick in the 2024 NFL draft.”
You can argue Lincoln Riley has a good track record with the NFL. You can also argue the USC offensive line might not be the best option for Williams.
