2021 five-star quarterback Caleb Williams released his top five schools on Monday and LSU football made the cut.
Clemson, Maryland, Penn State and Oklahoma are also in Williams’ top five.
The Washington D.C. native is rated in 247Sports’ composite rankings as the No. 1 dual threat quarterback in the nation and the No. 5 overall player in the nation.
Rivals recruiting analyst Adam Friedman believes Oklahoma is the team to beat (for now) for Williams.
Friedman has LSU, however, right behind the Sooners in the race for Williams. Friedman noted that LSU previously led for Williams, but the departure of passing game coordinator Joe Brady is “a hurdle LSU has not gotten over just yet”.
