This week has already consisted of two major quarterback transfers, which includes Jalen Hurts to Oklahoma and Tate Martell to Miami. With those two quarterbacks off the board, the next signal-caller ready to make headlines is Austin Kendall.

Although Kendall potentially had the chance to become the 2019 starter for the Sooners, he submitted his name in the NCAA transfer portal because of the program's interest in adding Hurts.

He completed 70.6 percent of his passes in his sophomore season for 122 yards and a touchdown.

Oklahoma initially wanted to block Kendall from being immediately eligible as a graduate transfer, but the Big 12 champions are now allowing him to leave Norman with zero trouble.

Despite several reports stating that Kendall will officially join West Virginia for the upcoming season, his decision isn't official yet.

According to Eric Bailey of Tulsa World, the former Oklahoma quarterback will visit the Mountaineers today and his final choice will occur in the next 48 hours.

Kendall also visited the Auburn Tigers last week, but perhaps the chance to remain in the Big 12 is intriguing enough to transfer to West Virginia.

The Mountaineers will need an experienced quarterback to replace Will Grier for this season, and Kendall might be the superior option over Jack Allison.

After all, the chance to play against Oklahoma could lead him to Morgantown.
