So the National Media is claiming that Jalen Hurts and the Sooners have mutual interest. Which may be why Austin Kendall is expressing interest in being a grad transfer but, is he a quality player with the misfortune of being the backup for the last two Heisman Winners or is he just the extra arm and now everyone else is gone?
I haven’t seen him play, and I wonder if that might be what is holding up some interest from other teams. Hurts and Martell are grabbing a lot of the attention, and it could be that once they decide on their destination, Kendall gets a little more attention?
Also, he’s used his RS year, so after sitting out as a transfer (unless he finagles some weird appeal) he’d only have one year left. I know that’s the same as a grad xfer, but is that optimal? It could be for some schools. Don’t know Neal Brown’s opinions on this – one of the many things we’ll be digging into.
