BREAKING: Kendall block has been lifted



On Wenesday evening the University of Oklahoma has lifted a ban that would have kept grad transfer Austin Kendall from coming to WVU, per George Schroeder of USA Today.

The decision quite possibly might have to do with the great amount of backlash that the school received in blocking his transfer. The move was seen as low and hypocritical by most and it painted a bad light on Oklahoma and their Head Coach Lincoln Riley.

Earlier this afternoon Oklahoma landed a transfer of their own, Jalen Hurts from Alabama. With Hurts transferring in it was a bad look for the university to keep the block on Kendall.

Even with the block, Kendall could have still transferred to Morgantown if he chose to, however, he would have had to sit out for the 2019 season.

It now appears that Neal Brown has his chance to land a great quarterback and fill that 3rd and vital spot on the depth chart. This was his best chance at doing so over signing one before the spring. Kendall has two years of eligibility left.
