Kendall, who came off the bench last season in the Liberty Bowl to beat Army, will finish his collegiate career at Louisiana Tech.
In a 24-21 win over the Army Black Knights, Kendall saw his only extended playing time of the 2020 season. After Doege struggled in the first half, en route to trailing 14-10 at the intermission, Kendall was inserted into the lineup, giving the team the spark that it needed. He would finish the game going 8 for 17 for 121 yards and two touchdowns, including the game-winner to T.J. Simmons.
Kendall, a former four star recruit, spent time at Oklahoma before transferring to Morgantown in Neal Brown’s first year at WVU. Kendall was the starter before ultimately being replaced by Jarret Doege.
We wish Kendall nothing but the best at his new home! Once a Mountaineer, Always a Mountaineer!
