WVU Adds to Quarterback Roster

WVU Adds to Quarterback Roster


by: Kevin Kinder

West Virginia’s quarterback roster numbers have been in flux over the offseason, with comings and goings dotting the calendar since the end of 2016. The Mountaineers got another nice addition on Tuesday when Miami transfer Jack Allison announced that he was coming to West Virginia. The announcement was confirmed by another source as well.

Allison was on Miami’s roster for the bowl game match-up against West Virginia, but did not play, as he was redshirting during his initial year in Coral Gables. He was expecting to compete to be the ‘Canes starting quarterback following the departure of Brad Kayaa, but a switch in offensive philosophy under assistant coach Thomas Brown helped spur his departure. Miami ran a good deal of read option plays during the spring, which trends away from Allison’s strengths as a dropback passer. Allison suffered a shoulder sprain during spring drills, which caused him to miss about 10 days.

In Miami’s spring game, Allison completed 11 of 15 passes for 100 yards with one touchdown and one interception. After deciding to transfer, he considered junior college as an option before deciding to go the transfer route to WVU.

Allison will sit out the 2017 season as a transfer, and will then have three years of eligibility remaining.

    Another arm in practice. Sounds good.
