Jarret Doege, who was Bowling Green’s starting quarterback last season, will transfer to West Virginia, he announced Thursday.

Doege completed 62.2 percent of his 389 passes last season for 2,660 yards, with 27 touchdown passes and 12 interceptions. He started five games as a true freshman in 2017 and all 12 games last season for the Falcons, who went 3-9 and fired coach Mike Jinks in October.

Doege, who entered the transfer portal last week, has two years of eligibility remaining and will have to sit out the 2019 season under transfer rules, unless he applies for and is granted a waiver by the NCAA to be immediately eligible.

Doege’s younger brother, Seth Doege, played quarterback in the Big 12 for Texas Tech from 2009 to 2012.

West Virginia, looking to replace departed quarterback Will Grier (a third-round draft pick of the Carolina Panthers), could turn to Oklahoma grad transfer Austin Kendall or redshirt junior Jack Allison in 2019. Both have two seasons of eligibility remaining.
