OU football: Spencer Rattler has 'Baker Mayfield' energy, Brayden Willis says
NORMAN — Spencer Rattler’s physical strengths were known commodities going into this season, OU H-back Brayden Willis said Thursday.
“We all know about the intangibles, the arm strength and everything light that,” Willis said.
But the way he’s taken charge of things, especially since being named the starting quarterback earlier this week, has been the biggest eye-opening area of growth Willis has seen in the redshirt freshman.
“He’s a great leader and he’s done a great job getting us ready to go day-in and day-out, bringing energy to the offense. You know, a little Baker Mayfield energy. It gets everybody hyped to play.”
Rattler makes his starting debut for the Sooners Sept. 12 when OU hosts Missouri State.
