Interactive Roster Breakdown: Quarterbacks

WVU Football

Neal Brown has praised both of his returning quarterbacks who possess starting experience, saying each has grown as a leader during the offseason. 

But the head coach of the Mountaineers hasn’t named a starter yet, and likely won’t until Austin Kendall or Jarret Doege earns the spot during fall camp. 

Kendall was West Virginia’s week one starter last fall after transferring in from Oklahoma. He led WVU to a 3-1 start as a redshirt junior, but then the Mountaineers endured a lengthy losing streak during a tough stretch in October.

Doege replaced Kendall as the starter for West Virginia’s final three contests, leading WVU to big upsets on the road against Kansas State and TCU.

Here’s a complete breakdown of West Virginia’s quarterback room, including newcomers and departures: 

Returning starters: 

Austin Kendall

  • Redshirt senior from Waxhaw, North Carolina
  • 6-2, 214 lbs
  • Made nine starts for WVU in 2019, throwing for 1989 yards, 12 TDs, 10 INTs, and completed 61.5 percent of his passes and logged a 122.92 rating.

Jarret Doege

  • Redshirt junior from Lubbock, Texas
  • 6-2, 208 lbs
  • Started West Virginia’s final three games in 2019 while redshirting after transferring from Bowling Green. Completed 65.8 percent of his passes for 818 yards, 7 TDs and 3 INTs; logged a 137.34 rating
