WVU QB Austin Kendall enters transfer portal

Gold and Blue Nation

After leading WVU football to a comeback victory in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl, quarterback Austin Kendall has entered the transfer portal.

The redshirt senior appeared in two games for the Mountaineers in 2020, the opener and the finale. Kendall played the entire second half in the postseason showdown with Army on Dec. 31, completing 8 of 17 passing attempts for 121 yards and two touchdowns.

In 2019, Kendall started the first eight games at the position, finishing with 1989 yards, 12 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions.

Before playing in the Liberty Bowl, Kendall made it public he was not returning to West Virginia. He still has one extra year of eligibility remaining due to the NCAA granting relief to all fall sport athletes.
