What a difference a day makes!

Former University of Miami quarterback Jack Allison will now be enrolling at West Virginia after initially electing to go the JUCO route, according to Mike Casazza of the Charleston Gazette-Mail.

News broke yesterday that Allison had decided to enroll at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, and would have a full year to make a decision as to which Division I program he would continue his career. Something happened in the last 24 hours to make Allison rethink that decision, and he’s now headed to Morgantown.

The former four-star signal caller will have to sit out the 2017 season due to NCAA transfer rules, but will be available to compete for the starting quarterback job next season, should Will Grier pursue an NFL career after this season. If Grier does return for his senior season, Allison will serve as a great backup while positioning himself to grab the reigns in 2019.
