MORGANTOWN — After keeping a tight lip all spring and into fall camp, head coach Neal Brown announced Oklahoma transfer, Austin Kendall, as the starting quarterback.

Kendall spent the last three seasons with the Sooners, backing up the likes of Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray. In 2018, he saw action in six games, including an 8-for-10, 88 yard and touchdown performance against Florida Atlantic.

Brown told the media that the transfer earned his spot, not with his performance on the field, but by how he’s carried himself off it.

“The thing I think he’s done probably as well as could have imagined is earning the respect of his team,” Brown said. “That’s something I think he’s handled extremely well. He came in, didn’t say a whole lot, went to work — let his work ethic and his level of preparation show how important it was to him. He’s done a good job of interacting with all aspects of our football team. I think he’s done a really good job.”

The Mountaineers’ season begins on August 31 against James Madison.
