As Spencer Rattler tries to prove the haters wrong in South Carolina, the former five-star quarterback gets to work. After a tumultuous 2021, Rattler seems to have his sights set on the future and his arm looks stronger than ever.

Rattler, who was the No. 1 pro-style quarterback for the Class of 2019, has undeniable talent. He was the Elite 11 MVP and the first-ever Arizona quarterback to pass 11,000 yards in his high school career. His highlight strip is full of ridiculous throws and lots of deep balls.

After committing to Oklahoma, Rattler sat behind Jalen Hurts in 2019 before winning the starting job for 2020. In a season shortened by COVID-19, the 6-foot-1, 200-pound led the Sooners to a Big-12 title, won the Cotton Bowl, and threw for 3,031 yards and 28 touchdowns with just seven interceptions.

He was immediately propelled to the top of the 2021 Heisman Trophy watch list.

However, last year didn’t go as he had hoped. After some early-season struggles and a 28-7 deficit to Texas, head coach Lincoln Riley turned to true rookie Caleb Williams off the bench.

From then on, despite some turbulence, Williams was the starter. Although he only played five full games, he had more passing yards than Williams during the season.

Shortly after the final game of the regular season, Rattler reached the transfer gate and committed to South Carolina. He hopes to regain his first-round NFL draft status with a big year in Colombia this fall.

In the meantime, he works to perfect his art.

A video from a few weeks ago showed Rattler dropping pennies during a practice session in Arizona. Now, a new video shows him spending more time with his private quarterbacks coach Mike Giovando.

At one point during training, the players stopped to show off in a long ball contest. Rattler came forward and casually tossed the ball 75 yards downfield.

To put that number into perspective, NFL quarterbacks in the 2002 Pro Bowl, including Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, did not reach that level. Rattler did.

Now the weather and all of that obviously play a role, but Rattler’s innate arm strength is impressive. 75 meters on what was essentially a two-step raven leap? Good enough.
