Kendall announced as starting QB

Top Stories

The most anticipated decision of fall camp has finally arrived.

Head coach Neal Brown announced on Tuesday that Austin Kendall will be West Virginia’s starting quarterback for the 2019 season. The Oklahoma transfer gets the nod over returners Jack Allison and Trey Lowe, as well as newcomer Jarret Doege.

“We tracked everything from spring practice through fall camp – decision making, completion percentage, number of turnovers, scoring drives. It was clear after Friday night’s scrimmage in the stadium he earned it,” Coach Brown said of Kendall.

“Jack Allison did a good job, I do believe in him. I think that is important for everybody to know that I do believe in him. Trey Lowe is a guy that has prepared well and continues to improve and could potentially see some game action.”

The official news comes just a few hours after Doege’s waiver was granted by the NCAA, making the Bowling Green transfer eligible for the upcoming season. Brown says that Doege will likely redshirt this season.
