Five schools are now in the running for the nation’s top dual-threat quarterback in the 2021 recruiting class.
On Monday, five-star quarterback Caleb Williams revealed his top five schools. The heavily-recruited gunslinger has received 22 offers during this recruiting cycle and is considered to be one of the top overall players in the recruiting class, as well.
Two B1G teams made the cut, with Penn State and Maryland sitting in the top five. Clemson, LSU an Oklahoma are the other three programs in consideration. Williams made his announcement with an image on Twitter on Monday.

Per 247Sports, Williams is the No. 1 dual-threat quarterback in the 2021 class and is ranked as the fifth-best player overall. The Washington D.C. native stands 6-foot-2 and weighs 210 pounds.
Four other B1G schools offered Williams, as Ohio State, Rutgers, Michigan and Illinois also showed interest in the dual-threat quarterback.
The addition of Williams would obviously be a huge boost for either Maryland or Penn State, should he commit to one of those schools. Currently the Nittany Lions have just two verbal pledges in the 2021 class, and neither is a four- or five-star prospect. The Terrapins currently have one four-star commit in the class and have eight pledges overall.
Below are some of Williams’ highlights:
