Oklahoma's football program has made a new decision on transfer quarterback Austin Kendall.

Kendall, a former four-star recruit, has graduated from Oklahoma and intends to play elsewhere in 2019.

West Virginia is a likely transfer destination for Kendall, though the Sooners were reportedly blocking him from playing for another Big 12 program.

Oklahoma, which received a commitment from Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts today, has been criticized - harshly - for its blocking of Kendall.

The Sooners have thankfully reversed course.

Kendall is now able to transfer to West Virginia and play right away.

"BREAKING: Oklahoma will grant grad transfer QB Austin Kendall the waiver to be immediately eligible at West Virginia, @usatodaysports has learned. The school worked through its concerns over a transfer within the Big 12 to arrive at the decision," USA TODAY reports.

Kendall is a former four-star recruit. He'd likely start at West Virginia in 2019.

Stay tuned.
