“I wanted to go somewhere I thought would provide me with the best development both on and off the field,” Williams told ESPN. “Getting to know Coach Riley and gaining familiarity with his offense definitely played a part in my selection, as well as already knowing some the guys on the team.”

Williams ultimately chose the Trojans over UCLA, Georgia, Oklahoma and Wisconsin, per ESPN.

Williams signed all his paperwork to attend USC late last week, and is expected to attend his first class at USC in person Tuesday, ESPN reports. He should be cleared to join team workouts in the upcoming days.

“I want to get to work right away, earn the trust of my teammates, win championships and help bring USC back to being a top-rated program,” Williams said.

Williams started the final seven games for Oklahoma (11-2) and finished the season with 1,912 passing yards and 442 rushing yards, and was responsible for 27 touchdowns — 21 passing and six rushing — and threw just four interceptions.
