Caleb Williams was the subject of a wide-ranging profile in GQ on Wednesday.

Williams, the returning Heisman Trophy winner, is arguably the face of college football in 2023. And while he is eligible to enter the 2024 NFL Draft, Williams could be in for a longer stay in college.

As part of the profile in GQ, Williams’ father, Carl Williams, said returning to school will be an option for the USC quarterback if the “situation” with whoever has the No. 1 overall pick isn’t right.

Williams was critical of the NFL’s draft process in general and cited examples of previous Lincoln Riley quarterbacks struggling in the NFL due to situation.

Here’s Carl Williams’ full quote:

“The funky thing about the NFL draft process is, he’d almost be better off not being drafted than being drafted first. The system is completely backwards,” he says. “The way the system is constructed, you go to the worst possible situation. The worst possible team, the worst organization in the league—because of their desire for parity—gets the first pick. So it’s the gift and the curse. I mean, I’ve talked to Archie Manning—his career was shot because he went to a horrible organization. I’ve talked to Lincoln [Riley], and Kyler [Murray] struggled because of where he was drafted. Baker [Mayfield] struggled mightily because of where he was drafted. The organizations matter.”

“He’s got two shots at the apple … So if there’s not a good situation, the truth is, he can come back to school.”

Williams is off to a great start in 2023. He’s completed 73.5% of passes so far this year for 9 touchdowns and 0 interceptions.

If Williams does declare for the 2024 NFL Draft, he would likely be the heavy favorite to be the No. 1 overall pick. The NFL team who owns that selection will not be known until the end of the regular season.

USC will host Stanford on Saturday.
