Every year, college football produces the next big entities of the NFL. This year, another name has risen to the scene. USC Trojans’ quarterback has dominated through and through. Sophomore, Caleb Williams, transferred to USC after a year in Oklahoma. He felt no nerves getting along with his new team as he adapted immediately and has been a stellar addition to their offensive unit.

The Trojans’ quarterback has had a great year, throwing 37 touchdowns against just 4 interceptions. He was rightfully given the Heisman Trophy for his brilliance throughout this year’s season. However, post his achievements, he made a bold statement that a lot of fans did not welcome.

The Heisman trophy winner took part in the Pac-12 Championship game earlier this month. With a hamstring injury he picked in the championship game, Williams was ruled out as the Trojans lost to Utah.

Even with this fate, Williams made a bold claim as the football community compares the 20-year-old with one of the best QBs in the game. “I don’t think there’s anything that I can’t do that he’s doing out there,” said the budding quarterback, referring to Patrick Mahomes.

While he has the numbers that prove his excellence in the NCAA, the young quarterback might be getting a little ahead of himself. Drawing self-driven comparisons with one of the best QBs in the NFL while being a college sophomore is quite a hot take. Though the NCAA is the gateway to the NFL, Williams must understand the jump from college football to pro football is a leap of its own.
