Spencer Rattler

Thursday’s 50-10 victory over South Carolina State in Columbia lifted South Carolina’s record to 3-2. For the first time since Week 2, quarterback Spencer Rattler threw for over 200 yards, finishing with 212 yards on 21 of 27 passing (77.8%) with two touchdowns and two interceptions. The night was capped off by five carries for 31 yards and another touchdown for the Oklahoma transfer.

I think things are starting to click, and [there are] more and more things that he is comfortable with,” coach Shane Beamer said in the postgame news conference. “Learning his preferences and growing in self-assurance. He has looked excellent in practice, and he is clearly putting in a lot of work. Simply having experience and familiarity is helping it grow in assurance, I believe.”

The junior quarterback lost the first three games of the season, throwing for two touchdowns and five interceptions while the team lost to Arkansas and Georgia in the Southeastern Conference. Beamer showed his quarterback, Rattler, plenty of patience all year long, and the results showed on the field as the offense, plagued by offseason injuries and a lack of chemistry, finally began to find some success.

Beamer noted that the offense had several new players. “Unfortunately, wide receiver Corey Rucker was not present during the spring session. There were few new individuals like Spencer and Juice Wells (WR). When we had spring practice, Austin Stogner (TE) wasn’t present. Certainly not what I am arguing is that we should wait. The process is not instantaneous either.”

This season, Rattler has sacked a total of 14 times, with 9 of those sacks being the result of defensive mistakes. Rattler’s pocket presence has improved, according to Beamer, and he attributes this to the quarterback’s willingness to hold firm in the face of pressure after the six-sack disaster in Week 2 versus Arkansas.

Beamer praised his “very excellent job stepping up in the pocket” saying. “In the beginning, while the adrenaline was still pumping, he may have been reluctant to fully commit to the experience, opting instead to retreat. In terms of protecting the quarterback and receivers, our offensive line has been doing better in recent weeks.

As for Spencer, I think he’s done a fine job as well. Competition is nothing new for him. Athletically, he fares well. When you give him a task, he gives it his all and makes every effort to improve.”

College football, basketball, and recruiting news, as well as live college commitments, can all be found on the 247Sports YouTube channel. Rattler, a former five-star prospect, enrolled at South Carolina this offseason after being rated as the No. 11 overall player and No. 1 quarterback in the class of 2019.

Rattler decided to quit the Oklahoma program after three years of playing there because he was benched in favor of Caleb Williams. According to the 2022 College Football Transfer Portal rankings compiled by 247Sports, he was the fourth-best player available.
