Oklahoma backup quarterback Austin Kendall is entering the NCAA transfer portal, according to a report from Tulsa World's Eric Bailey. Oklahoma could explore adding a graduate transfer, like Alabama's Jalen Hurts.

Kendall, who will be a fourth-year junior, is in line to take over as the starting quarterback for the Sooners in 2019 after spending the past three seasons backing up Heisman Trophy winners Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray. Kendall has already graduated and would have two years of eligibility remaining.

The Athletic reported Friday night that Kendall was not the only Sooners player in the database.

The Sooners have only two other scholarship quarterbacks on their roster for 2019, five-star incoming freshman Spencer Rattler and redshirt freshman Tanner Mordecai.

Does this put Oklahoma in the market for a transfer quarterback of its own?

Rattler will be on the team next year but won't arrive until the summer, making it unlikely he'd be able to get into the mix to be the starter to begin next season with Murray nearly certain to leave for either professional baseball or football.

Throughout his time in Norman, Kendall has completed 28-of-39 passes for 265 yards and three touchdowns.
