The Oklahoma Sooners have become the top college football team in the nation when it comes to quarterbacks. That won’t change as the Sooners just landed the number one overall prospect in the Rivals100 2021 class — Brock Vandagriff.

At the end of the 2017 college football season, Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Baker Mayfield won the Heisman Trophy and then was the first overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. He is now the face of the Cleveland Browns.

At the end of the 2018 college football season, Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Kyler Murray won the Heisman Trophy and then was the first overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. He is now the hopeful savior of the Arizona Cardinals.

Heading into the 2019 college football season, Jalen Hurts chose to transfer from the perennial national champion contending Alabama Crimson Tide to the Oklahoma Sooners and has designs on bringing another Heisman Trophy to Oklahoma.
Waiting in the wings is Spencer Rattler, the only quarterback in the class of 2019 to receive a five-star rating. When Hurts leaves at the end of the 2019 season, Rattler is someone that could become the next Baker Mayfield.
As a true freshman, he will be around until at least 2021 — and that is when Brock Vandagriff shows up in Norman.
Vandagriff is the number one recruit in the entire 2021 class and Sooners’ head coach Lincoln Riley went to Georgia to recruit him. Vandagriff, who watched two straight Sooners quarterbacks win Heisman Trophies before heading to the NFL, chose Oklahoma over Florida and Georgia.
“Oklahoma was the best decision for me because it checked all the boxes as an individual and as an athlete,” Vandagriff said. “The staff was more than welcoming, and unbelievably outgoing throughout the process. It only took two visits to know that is where I will be spending my college years. THAT is how special it is in Norman.”
Unlike Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray, Brock Vandagriff is a pro-style passer and not a scrambler, so it will be interesting to see how Lincoln Riley coaches him when the time comes.
Brock Vandagriff stands 6 feet 2 inches and currently attends Prince Avenue Christian School.
