A new era for USC fans begins with the Caleb Williams’ arrival
If you thought that Lincoln Riley going from Oklahoma to USC was big, something more significant happened today. The Trojan Athletics department announced that Caleb Williams’ arrival to Southern California is complete.
While many in Los Angeles, California, were excited about acquiring the former head coach in Norman, OK, they should have been even more excited about his pairing with his elite signal-caller.
Last year, Williams almost was a Heisman candidate at season’s end despite only playing 11 games after being Spencer Rattler’s backup.
Caleb Williams’ arrival probably wouldn’t have happened without Riley
Say what you will about the college transfer portal, but Lincoln Riley and Caleb Williams have taken full advantage of it within the past few months. More than likely, both realized chances at winning a national championship were slim to none in a watered-down Big-12 conference. Especially with the pending departures of Texas and Oklahoma to the SEC. With that being said, there was no better time to revive the once feared Trojan program than now.
The time for USC to return to glory is now
After being questionably sanctioned for recruiting violations years ago, USC was looked at negatively for many years from those outside California. In reality, those schools have done similar, if not worse, actions in recruiting talents. Many talented athletes have come out of the state in recent years. Talents such as Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback Bryce Young left the state he grew up in to play elsewhere.
That should be no longer the case, as the Trojans now have both a top coach and quarterback for years to come. There is little resistance to the best school in California returning to glory. Especially with talks of an expanded college football playoff soon.
