Oklahoma is taking advantage of an NCAA rule to keep quarterback Austin Kendall from becoming immediately eligible at West Virginia, sources told ESPN's Jake Trotter.

As a graduate transfer, Kendall should be able to play at another school in 2019. However, the Sooners can exercise a rule that forces the Big 12 player to sit out a year if he transfers within the conference.

Kendall left Oklahoma after the Sooners began pursuing Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts, who is also a graduate transfer.

Kendall already redshirted a season at Oklahoma, so the sophomore would lose one of his two remaining years of eligibility if he sits out at West Virginia.

A former four-star recruit, Kendall spent his Oklahoma career backing up Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray. He threw for 265 yards and three touchdowns in limited action for the Sooners.
