Despite having three seasons of high school football remaining, Spencer Rattler might soon need two hands to count his scholarship offers.
Oklahoma joined the chase for Rattler on Wednesday with a scholarship offer, becoming the fifth program to do so since early November when the 6-foot, 165-pound prospect from Phoenix (Ariz.) Pinnacle picked up his first from nearby Arizona State. UCLA, Texas A&M and Kentucky followed in that order and they likely won't be the last.
"I'm very excited about the Oklahoma offer, but I can't let that all get to my head," Rattler told Scout.com. "I just have to keep working so all these blessings can keep coming. Oklahoma is obviously one of the best schools. The offensive coordinator, Lincoln Riley, offered me. I called him and we talked for a while and then he told me that they're extending me an offer. It's exciting for sure."
Rattler has plans to camp with Texas A&M this summer and the relationship with the Aggies is a strong one, especially now with Noel Mazzone occupying the offensive coordinator position there. Mazzone has recruited Arizona in the past and first had his eye on Rattler while at UCLA last year.
"I'm looking forward to competing at camp and seeing the campus," Rattler said. "I've talked to Mazzone recently and I know he'll be out in Arizona in two weeks during the evaluation period.
"I'll probably take an unofficial to ASU this summer, too, and I might go to Oregon and UCLA for camps. With UCLA, is just a great school and they have a great tradition so I'm looking forward to checking that out."
Rattler passed for 2,381 yards and 19 touchdowns in 11 games as a freshman last season.
