Austin Kendall Biography

Austin Kendall is an American football player born in Charlotte, North Carolina, United States. He earned his Oklahoma undergraduate degree in December 2018 after three years on campus.

He played sparingly in 2016 and 2018 and during the 2017 season, Kendall Redshirted and was named one of squad’s offensive scout team players of the year.

Kendall has completed 28-of-39 pass attempts for 265 yards and three touchdowns while backing up Heisman Trophy winners Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray. He

Austin Kendall Family

Kendall grew up in a football family. He is the son of Kimberly Kendall and Brian who was a junior varsity quarterback at Georgia. Kendall has an older brother named Ryan. Kendall wears No. 10 at Oklahoma because that’s what his father wore while playing for the Bulldog.

His biggest fans are many miles away — parents, grandparents and Ryan, who just completed his senior season playing football at Kentucky. “It’s really supportive. Even grandparents are always calling me. I talk to my dad and mom,” Kendall said. “That relationship is really good. They care about me a bunch and it’s always good to see.”

Austin Kendall West Virginia

Kendall enrolled at West Virginia on Thursday 17 January 2018 in the Sport Management graduate program, MetroNews learned. His enrollment at WVU concludes a saga that began when the Sooners decided to pursue Alabama graduate transfer Jalen Hurts, prompting Kendall to enter the NCAA transfer portal on Jan. 11.

Oklahoma initially blocked Kendall from moving to a school within the Big 12, but after much criticism, granted him a release to do so Wednesday. Time was of the essence for Kendall, who had to enroll in classes at West Virginia by Friday in order to be eligible for spring practices.

Austin Kendall Transfer

Oklahoma will grant QB Austin Kendall’s transfer, now immediately eligible at West Virginia

A few hours after adding a graduate transfer quarterback, Oklahoma lost one — and then it lost again in the court of public opinion.

Austin Kendall will be immediately eligible at West Virginia for the 2019 season as a graduate transfer — but only after Oklahoma agreed late this afternoon to grant a waiver, according to a person with knowledge of the school’s decision-making process.

The person, who requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation, said the school initially was reluctant to grant the waiver, because Kendall was transferring within the Big 12 and did not want to set a precedent on intra-conference transfers. ESPN reported the situation Wednesday morning, creating instant backlash. Hours later, the school relented.

In January 17, 2019, Alabama’s Jalen Hurts announced he would transfer to Oklahoma, immediately becoming the front-runner to succeed Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray as the leader of the Sooners’ powerful offense.

Kendall, who will have two years of eligibility remaining, was the backup to Murray last season. He entered the NCAA’s transfer portal last week, signaling his intent to explore his options, and visited Auburn on Monday before settling on West Virginia. Hurts visited Oklahoma on Sunday.

Under the NCAA’s new transfer rules, Kendall was free to transfer to any school. But graduate transfers are required to get a waiver from their former school to be immediately eligible. It has routinely been seen as a formality. But according to the person with knowledge of the process, Oklahoma officials did not want to set a precedent in allowing a player to be immediately eligible at another Big 12 school — effectively blocking the move. But by Wednesday afternoon, they’d relented.
