There’s been a lot of Oklahoma Sooners quarterback news over the last 24 hours. Caleb Williams entered the transfer portal. Former UCF quarterback Dillon Gabriel committed to the Sooners via the transfer portal and now a future Sooners quarterback is joining the fray.

Set to play in the All-American Bowl this week, Nick Evers revealed via his Twitter account that he will be forced to sit out due to a positive COVID test. Evers stated that he’s showing no signs or symptoms and is vaccinated. However, due to protocols, he won’t be able to participate in the remainder of All-American week in anticipation of the game this weekend.

It’s a disappointing result for a player who’s ready to make a name for himself at the college level.

In response to the news that Caleb Williams had entered the transfer portal, Evers spoke with Chris Hummer of 247Sports and shared his readiness to start for the Sooners on day one.

In the piece from Hummer at 247Sports, Evers said, “I have nothing wrong with being throw into the fire early. I’m going to work my butt off every single day. To get the opportunity to be able to see the field soon is a blessing. I just need to get ready for it.”

Nick Evers certainly has the attitude of a future starting quarterback for the Oklahoma Sooners. He appears to be a guy that doesn’t shy away from opportunities. When his time comes to lead the Oklahoma Sooners offense, he’s got the skills to be a game-changer in Norman.
