QB Battle Heating Up For Mountaineers

West Virginia has started their first padded practice under Neal Brown. Now is the time for real evaluation and more specifically figuring out the QB situation. Austin Kendall was the expected starter but the other two won’t go quietly.

Notes From Practice

Most of the evaluation came from drills but Jack Allison shined in passing drills from 15 yards out. Neal Brown has mentioned before that he is looking for a guy to get the ball out quick with accurate throws. That is something you want from every QB but he was more referencing accuracy and quick release over monster arm and gunslinger.

Trey Lowe was also putting zip on the ball. Lowe as a redshirt Freshman still has a lot to learn and a lot to prove. Not that it is out of the question but he has a long way to go if he wants to knock off both Jack Allison and Austin Kendall.

Kendall looked solid as well. He is still finding his way and learning a new system, along with everyone else, so it will take some time. The biggest note, it is day three of Spring practice. Everyone looked solid and that is a great thing because everyone should. At this point you don’t want to see anyone seriously struggling. The competition will bring out the best and Neal Brown getting quality play will help mask some early issues in year one.

Other Practice Notes

  • West Virginia has their annual Blue Gold game on April 13th
  • Most of practice were drills and foot work. Due to NCAA rules contact is limited
