QB Dillon Gabriel backs off UCLA commitment, picks Oklahoma

Dillon Gabriel has had a change of heart and is transferring to Oklahoma, backing off the commitment he made to UCLA on Dec. 16.

The former UCF quarterback announced he was entering the transfer portal on Nov. 27, then chose the Bruins. But after Oklahoma starting quarterback Caleb Williams put his name in the portal Monday to explore his options, Gabriel flipped to the Sooners.

He posted a photo of himself on Tuesday in an Oklahoma uniform with the headline “COMMITTED”.

Gabriel’s junior season in 2021 ended in Week 3 when he broke his collarbone in a loss to Louisville.

He passed for 8,037 yards, 70 touchdowns and 14 interceptions in his three seasons with the Knights. The left-hander passed for 814 yards with nine touchdowns and three interceptions in 2021 prior to the injury.

Gabriel passed for 3,653 yards and 29 touchdowns in 2019 and 3,570 yards and 32 scores in 2020. The native of Hawaii was intercepted seven times in 2019 and threw just four in 413 attempts the following season.
