With yesterday’s announcement of senior quarterback Will Grier skipping the bowl game, the reigns of the offense have officially moved into the hands of redshirt sophomore Jack Allison.
Allison, a former four star recruit, committed to Miami (FL) out of high school before eventually deciding to transfer to West Virginia. He held offers from schools such as Alabama, Missouri, Tennessee and UCF along with Miami.
He was rated as the 8th best pro-style quarterback in the 2016 recruiting class, per 247Sports.com. Allison has seen action in four games this season completing 6 of 10 passes for 75 yards and one touchdown and one interception. His lone interception was a catchable ball that happened to bounce off the receiver and into the defenders hands.
There has certainly been many heated discussions on whether it was the right decision for Will Grier to sit out the bowl game and in my opinion, it’s the best situation possible. This gives Allison a jumpstart for the 2019 season. He will now have game film to watch vs a power five opponent that he can watch all off season long to see what he did right or wrong.
Allison is a much bigger quarterback than Grier and is the biggest quarterback Holgorsen has had at West Virginia, standing in at 6’6” 205 pounds. He has tremendous touch on the ball and can really sling it deep. If he continues to build his arm strength, he too, could position himself to be a top NFL prospect. He certainly has the size scouts will drool over, now he just needs to produce.
It’s Jack time.
