Former Oklahoma quarterback Austin Kendall has officially announced his transfer destination.

Kendall was initially expected to become the starting quarterback for the Sooners, but the addition of Jalen Hurts undoubtedly complicated matters.

Oklahoma wanted to block Kendall from being immediately eligible as a graduate transfer at first, yet the Big 12 champions are now allowing him to leave Norman without any complications.

The official decision was expected to arrive within the next day or two. However, it appears that Kendall was ready to announce his future home on Twitter this morning.

It turns out that Kendall will transfer to West Virginia and prepare to participate in the spring for the Mountaineers.

"I am excited for this next step in my life and opportunity at West Virginia University," Kendall tweeted.

Check out his full message:

With Will Grier preparing for the upcoming NFL Draft, the Mountaineers could use an experienced signal caller for next season. Even though Kendall didn't receive many snaps during his two years with the Sooners, he might be a significant upgrade over Jack Allison.

It'll be interesting to see if Kendall can immediately win the starting job in Morgantown.

If he does, it'd be quite fun to watch Jalen Hurts and Oklahoma battle against Kendall and West Virginia in the fall.
