    Good news. Let the competition begin!

    This is the QB that could potentially make a difference next year. Is everybody asleep?

    Too busy watching his high school highlights on YouTube to respond…

    Close the deal Mr. Brown.

    This is indeed an important addition for WVU. However, as always, I’m going to be the voice of caution here. Could he be great? Sure. Should it be expected? Unfair to him.

    Remember just a couple of weeks ago when all the Captain Jack memes were floating around? While maybe a bit entertaining, they show how so many people buy in to some social media item or the hype of the next great hope. It’s an extension of the old football saying “The most popular guy on the team is the backup quarterback.”

    I understand the attractiveness of the next shiny new thing, and Kendall is it, just as Allison was for a short time. I hate that because it’s just not realistic, and not fair to either the “old” guys or the new one.

    In a way, it’s like Trey Doomes on the hoop team. I’ve read 4-5 different articles about him being a difference-maker for WVU. Again, no rip on him. He can leap, drive it and create contact and hopefully get to the line. But he’s not a season-saver, nor is it fair to put that on a guy who was going to be redshirted, and had it pulled as what strikes me as a bit of a desperation move.

    This story plays out time and again for new guys who haven’t played yet. The reality is often something quite different, and in those times when it doesn’t develop as hoped, it’s followed by inevitable cries of “he’s a bust” or “you all hyped him up as being great, and he’s not”. I guess that’s human nature, but I continue to hope for better.

    Again, I want to reiterate I’m not ripping on anyone’s abilities. Kendall might turn out to be great right off the bat. Doomes is in very early stages of his career, and has plenty of time to work and round out his skills.

    I agree wholeheartedly that we need to be patient and let things play out.Although, we do have a new era beginning at WVU with a new QB with the right credentials and a new head coach and staff who is a proven winner.It’s hard not to get excited.

    But, as Benjamin Franklin is credited with saying,”I always expect the worst and when the opposite happens I am pleasantly surprised”. Maybe those are wise words that we all should heed at this point.

    It’s good news because WV lacked depth and numbers at qb. Not because he should be assumed the savior, or even the starter for next year.

    #80337

    Definitely good news. Excellent recruiting win for WVU. Don’t mean to dump on that angle at all.

    #80359

    Great news. Going into ’19 with only 2 schollie QB’s was a disaster waiting to happen. Now with Kendall on board we have 3 QB’s each with different skill sets and all 3 with the ability to be the starter. Let’s not throw all our eggs into the Kendall basket so soon. It’s even better that he will enroll immediately and be able to practice this spring. Had this not been the case he would have been severely behind. Biggest benefit is that he has 2 yrs to play. Let’s see if this has any effect on the two other guys.

    Now, let’s go out after a couple HS kids now that we have a little breathing room.

    #80373

    Competition is always good and better to have 3 then 2. Also a Texas qb just became available I would go get him too.

    #80374

    I wouldn’t be surprised if WVU adds another quarterback to its roster, but it almost certainly would be one from the high school ranks, and then only if there is one good enough. Too many other needs to use up space among the seven remaining scholarships (six once Kendall is officially added) on more than one transfer quarterback.

    #80377

    I could see Allison beating out Kendell …… I have no back ground to make that statement but others had them ranked about the same out of high school. …. but we needed the QB completion and depth and I also would like to see a high school qb recruited. I agree we are much better off with this transfer

    #80379

    It’s probably more a case of limiting the outside possibility
    of a transfer than the reason given for lifting the redshirt!
    It’s hard to believe people bought this!

    #80402

    Tony, what do you mean by “lifting the redshirt”? Who are you referring to?

    My guess is Trey Doomes and his threads got crossed.

    #80431

    I would seriously doubt that Brown would bring in another transfer for 1 or 2 years with Kendall and Allison both being JR’s with 2 to play 2. I could see a JC with 4 to play 3 and most likely a true FR. But with the needs in other positions, unless this is a high quality player IMO we go with the 3 schollies we have and use the walk-ons as practice arms.

    should have said pulled vs lifted!!?

    Anyone who wrote that Trey was going to be a difference maker simply didn’t have a clue. Might he help a little? Sure. And like you, in no way are we meaning to downgrade him. But the plan was for him to redshirt, and there wasn’t enough shown in preseason practices to change that.

    Clearly, his redshirt was lifted because he was showing effort where others were not. Same as starting Taevon Horton.
