The rumor mill has run amuck since Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Caleb Williams opted to enter the NCAA transfer portal following his true freshman season and head coach Lincoln Riley’s departure for the USC Trojans. Williams is likely to land in Los Angeles, but lately, programs like the Georgia Bulldogs, LSU Tigers and, most recently, the Wisconsin Badgers have crept into the conversation. The latter, in particular, would be a weird landing spot, given Wisconsin’s lack of resume under center in recent years. Then again, it’s the Big Ten, a conference that produces a plethora of NFL-quality quarterbacks, namely Ohio State.
