There has been plenty of questions surrounding the QB battle taking place in Neal Brown’s first year. The QB room currently has Juniors Austin Kendall and Jack Allison and redshirt freshman Trey Lowe. The Mountaineers also have Florida prospect Garrett Green committed to the 2020 class.
Now Jarret Doege is transferring from Bowling Green to West Virginia. The details haven’t been worked out and it is unknown if he will be the last man in for the 2019 class or go to the 2020 class.
Doege comes in after throwing for 2,660 yards, 27 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in 2018. He also played in seven games as a freshman, the first freshman starting QB at Bowling Green since 1982. Doege has 39 touchdowns, 15 interceptions and has completed 63% of his passes.
It would be easy to write off Bowling Green as playing lower competition. But Doege had starts against Oregon, Miami, Maryland and Georgia Tech. He had maintained his 63% completion average and had eight touchdowns to five interceptions in those contests.
Doege also has ties to head coach Neal Brown, Doege played high school football in Lubbock Texas where Neal Brown was a coach during the same time at Texas Tech. Doege’s brother, Seth, also played for Neal Brown at Texas Tech for three years, starting two.
While Doege may not be the answer for Neal Brown, it id going to get even more interesting in Morgantown once Doege is eligible to play.
