Former WVU Quarterback Austin Kendall Transferring to Louisiana Tech

Former West Virginia quarterback Austin Kendall has reportedly found a new home. According to Ben Carlisle of BleedTechBlue, Kendall has joined Louisiana Tech football and is currently on campus there.

For Kendall, a sixth-year senior, LA Tech will be his third college team since leaving Cuthbertson High School in North Carolina in 2016. Kendall originally signed with Oklahoma, playing three years with the Sooners. In Norman, Kendall played backup to Heisman Trophy winners Kyler Murray and Baker Mayfield, passing for 265 yards and three touchdowns in six games.

Kendall left Oklahoma after Jalen Hurts transferred in from Alabama in 2019 and landed with WVU. He broke the 2019 season as the Mountaineers’ starting quarterback, throwing for 1,989 yards, 12 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in nine games. Kendall lost the starting job in the final third of the season to Bowing Green transfer Jarret Doege and served as Doege’s backup for all of 2020.

To close out his WVU career, Kendall came in off the bench in the second half of the 2020 Liberty Bowl against Army and led the Mountaineers to a come-from-behind victory. He entered the transfer portal shortly after the season ended in January and will have one year of eligibility remaining.
