In my case the ribbon cable from the clock spring came out, wrapped around the column and hung up my ability to freely turn the steering wheel.

The clock spring itself is fragile but the ribbon cable within it is strong.

I knew it was my clock spring cable because I could audibly hear the cable binding up in there. So if he hears the strange sound of a paper-ish sound coming from the column when he turns, then most likely it is his clock spring. If he doesn't hear a noise then disregard my rant.
