It looks like Oklahoma Sooners QB Austin Kendall could be on the move this spring.
Kyler Murray's backup has reportedly entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal, signifying his time in Oklahoma may be over. Kendall could leave Oklahoma having already graduated, meaning he will be eligible to play anywhere in the NCAA immediately.
Kendall spent the last three seasons as a backup, redshirting for one year and sitting behind two Heisman Trophy winners in Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray for the next two.
Now, headed into his fourth year, Kendall will be looking elsewhere as he hopes to get more playing time, and possibly a starting role at another school.
If Kendall were to leave, the Sooners would still be left with two young, but talented options at QB for 2019 in r
If Austin Kendall leaves, that means Oklahoma would have exactly one scholarship quarterback -- Tanner Mordecai -- on OU's campus this spring. Unless, of course, they bring in a transfer.— Jason Kersey (@jasonkersey) January 11, 2019

OU QB Austin Kendall is expected to graduate this semester, leaving opening the door for a grad transfer with immediate 2 years of eligibility should this spring not go the way he expects.

They just may have to do that without Kendall on the roster.
