Oklahoma media have noted Lincoln Riley did not allow Caleb Williams to speak to reporters all last season but allowed Williams to go on Good Morning America yesterday.
Is Los Angeles changing Riley?
Maybe. Maybe not.
I suspect Riley sees it is too good for his program to not let Williams do media. And frankly, Good Morning America probably wouldn’t have called if he was transferring from USC to Oklahoma.
This is a byproduct of being in the nation’s No. 2 media market. This is part of what gives USC an advantage over most schools.
Riley is probably changing his attitude about the media. Let’s see if that applies to players besides Williams.
