An ESPN College GameDay host has called out a major college football program in the wake of today's transfer news.

Oklahoma gained a major quarterback transfer today, with Alabama's Jalen Hurts announcing his move into the Sooners' program.

OU has another major quarterback transferring out, as former four-star recruit Austin Kendall has entered his name into the NCAA's transfer portal.

Kendall reportedly has interest in transferring to West Virginia, but the Sooners are blocking the intra-conference move from happening.

ESPN's Rece Davis isn't happy about that.

ESPN's Jake Trotter was the first to report about Oklahoma's situation with Kendall.

"As it pursues Alabama grad transfer quarterback Jalen Hurts, OU is blocking Austin Kendall from becoming immediately eligible at West Virginia as a grad transfer, multiple sources told ESPN," he reports.

Kendall, a former top recruit, has graduated from Oklahoma, so he's able to play right away in 2019, but the Sooners could stop him from doing so at another Big 12 program.

Most, though, think Oklahoma - a program that's benefited tremendously from quarterback transfers - should let him go wherever he wants.
