UFC transfer quarterback Dillon Gabriel announced that he was joining Oklahoma, flipping a prior commitment to UCLA.
That followed Oklahoma quarterback Caleb Williams' announcement earlier on Monday that he was entering the transfer portal.
Gabriel, 21, threw for 8,041 yards, 70 touchdowns and 14 interceptions in his three seasons with the Knights, completing 60.7 percent of his passes. He had an 18-8 record as the team's starter.
He played in just three games this past season, however, as a broken left clavicle cut his campaign short in September.
Gabriel's experience and familiarity with offensive coordinator Jeff Lebby will make him the frontrunner to serve as the Sooners starter in 2022, assuming Williams indeed departs via the transfer portal.
The fact that Gabriel flipped his commitment on the same day Williams hit the transfer portal is probably a good indication that Williams isn't returning to Norman, however.
The freshman had an excellent season for Oklahoma, throwing for 1,912 yards, 21 touchdowns and four interceptions after taking over the starting gig from Spencer Rattler, a preseason Heisman hopeful. Rattler has since transferred to South Carolina.
Replacing that pair with Gabriel is a pretty solid consolation prize for an Oklahoma program likely left reeling by Williams' announcement on Monday.
