Makes you wonder what went wrong. Copied his high school success

Rattler attended Pinnacle High School in Phoenix, Arizona, for all of his four years of high school. He broke the Arizona high school passing record on his 18th birthday.[ Rattler threw for 11,083 yards in his four years with 116 passing TDs and rushed for 1,040 yards with 14 rushing TDs. Early in his senior season, he was named MVP of the Elite 11 at The Opening in Texas.

In his final season at Pinnacle, Rattler starred in a Peter Berg-directed Netflix sports documentary series called QB1: Beyond the Lights. Rattler was later suspended for violating a district code of conduct, and was ineligible to play for the rest of the season. He initially said he had a sprained MCL, but the school administration later advised him not to speak of the nature of the code of conduct violation. Additionally, Rattler took the elective Introduction to Art 1/2 during his senior year of high school. In that class, he created a Self-portrait.

By the end of his sophomore year in high school, he had received 14 offers from NCAA D-I schools, including Alabama, Notre Dame, and Miami. On June 19, 2017, he visited Oklahoma on an unofficial visit and committed to Oklahoma a week later. On December 19, 2018, he signed his letter of intent to play for coach Lincoln Riley and the Sooners. He was considered a 5 star quarterback by 247Sports and Rivals.com, and a 4 star by ESPN. Rattler was also considered the consensus #1 quarterback in the 2019 recruiting class.
