BREAKING: Oklahoma backup quarterback Austin Kendall is entering the transfer portal, exploring options to leave the #Sooners.

1:50 PM - 11 Jan 2019


That's surprising. Not sure who else Oklahoma has, but I would think he would be the front runner to start next season.


he could stay....but they have the #1 QB in the country coming in this year. He is likely angry at Riley. The kid came to Oklahoma to be Bakers backup for a year. Then Riley brought in Murray. Kendall was Bakers backup his Freshman season...then Baker got a waiver to play another season....so Kendall redshirted and Murray was Bakers backup. Murray stays around another year, and Kendall returns to use another year backing him up. Now finally it appears he will get his chance to start at Oklahoma....he stayed and was a good soldier...then Riley is in contact with Hurts and Tate Martell this week.

I do not blame these kids.....because these college programs have no loyalty.

I can see why he would choose Bama over the Cardinals......Bama will pretty much be in contention year in and year out, and he keeps his name out there for a head coaching job if they win more championships. The Cards, we dunno how that experiment will work, it could end up badly or revitalize the franchise.

And they will also pay really well, I'd have to assume. Perhaps not Brent Venables-well, but well enough!

thanks...we need him. I was hopeful blue chip Miami transfer Jack Allison could take over for Will Grier, but he looked nothing like a blue chip QB in our bowl game.

I have always been more in line with schools living with their recruiting decisions and player remaining loyal to the school they gave a commitment. That has changed since the schools have began to treat transfer season as a free agency....not hesitating to bring in someone over guys that have been in the program. If schools are not going to remain true to their commitment, then I can not expect players to remain loyal to the schools they committed to. I am not sure this new trend of transferring is good or bad....but right now it is what it is.

7th-grade QB Isaiah Marshall gets scholarship offer from Michigan

Quote:
Isaiah Marshall, a seventh-grade quarterback at MacArthur Academy in Southfield, Michigan, has been offered a scholarship to play at Michigan, according to his father, Brian.

Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh extended the offer after watching tape of the 13-year-old signal-caller while visiting the school searching for high school prospects at Southfield High. Brian Marshall coaches running backs along with his brother, Aaron, who also is the offensive coordinator at Southfield.


LINK

this always works out well.....and that offer is not worth the paper it is written on

yeah, I think he has some old Bishop Gorman teammates there. I wanted to see what kind of #'s he would put up in the Big12. Then again, outside of Clemson the ACC is not very good.

wish he would transfer to WVU....he is good enough to make us competitive next season in the Big12


Hurts in a Chip Kelly attack? I wouldn't mind seeing that.

Also, I posted in the NFL thread, but Kyler Murray is expected to declare for the NFL Draft. Unless he tests terribly with how he throws (nothing he can do about his height), I am guessing he's better than 50/50 to be picked in the first round.


So what you are saying is Hurts to Oklahoma to replace Murray. I can see it.


We will see it.

not pleased at first, but I quickly saw how fast the national media began to hammer Oklahoma, and knew we were on a countdown for them to change their position. Reports are he is supposed to enroll today or tomorrow.....tomorrow is actually the last day to enroll to be eligible for the Spring, so I hope the reports are accurate.

OU never blocked him. He is a grad transfer that can go anywhere he wants to. But B12 rules state if you transfer within the conference you have to sit out a year. Baker had to sit out a year as well even though he wasn't on a scholarship. OU was actually the first B12 school to actually dismiss a student so they wouldn't have to sit out a year as a favor to AK.

Appears you are attempting to play a game of semantics. Yes, OU was unable to prevent him from transferring to WVU, but only OU was able to provide him a waiver to play immediately within conference which they refused to do initially. Their refusal to provide the waiver is why Kendall and/or WVU leaked this story to Trotter (ESPN) and Oklahoma was blasted for their hypocrisy. If not for the national outrage, and the Big12 stepping in behind the scenes, Riley would have refused Kendall the waiver.

The needed waiver for in conference Grad Transfers rule is likely to become null very soon in the Big12 because of Oklahoma's actions. They brought in multiple transfers in over Kendall, and his response was to keep his head down, continue to work and obtain his degree. At that point, the kid should be able to play where ever he chooses and the school should have zero control over the athlete. Oklahoma's claim for not providing the waiver was ridiculous.....in that it would give WVU an advantage since Kendall knows the playbook. This is not some Brady Bunch episode where Marsha's boyfriend steals Gregs playbook. Coaches leave and bounce around within conference every year, and they are far more familiar with play calls and schemes than any player. Just recently, an OU coach left for UCLA....and guess who is on OU's schedule next season?

Here is the truth of what happened. Everyone watching is playing checkers while Riley was playing chess. Riley wanted Hurts, and it had nothing to do with Kendall, but everything to do with Spencer Rattler. Riley knew that since Rattler is not enrolling until the Summer, Kendall would likely win the starting job. A few years ago, that is fine.....but Riley could not risk Kendall playing well enough to have any claim to the starting position the following year.....because fear of Rattler transferring. The solution was to bring in Hurts who he thinks he can win the Big12 with, and have Kendall as the ultimate insurance policy next season in case Hurts gets injured. Then, hand the keys over to Red Shirt Freshman and all world recruit Spencer Rattler for 3-4 years. Rattler is more talented than Hurts or Kendall, but because he could not enroll early, it kind of caused an issue for next season. In the current climate, Riley could not be sure Rattler does not bounce even if he thought there was a chance he would be on the bench for two seasons.

Things are at a very big moment of change in college football as it related to transferring....and I think teams will have to adjust how they recruit. For example, is Oklahoma better off recruiting another blue chip QB for the 2020 class, or a really solid 3-lower 4 Star kid who is unlikely to want to transfer as soon as they realize they are stuck behind Rattler? Justin Fields talked a big game last year committing to UGA.....then he realized that he was not taking the job from Fromm and exited. He became just wasted time and effort of the part of UGA.....but maybe if they had recruited a less high profile lower 4 Star QB knowing Fromm would be around for a few years, the kid may be more likely to stay and develop.

Sark was terrible for the Falcolns, he needs to go back to college with the uneven playing field of loaded teams vs unloaded teams where he can have success.
