The 6’2” junior was a two year starter for the Falcons and led the Mid-American Conference in passing yards and touchdowns in 2018, throwing for 2660 yards and 27 touchdowns. West Virginia announced the addition of Doege in May, following a less than stellar Spring performance from the rest of the Mountaineer quarterbacks.
As for what this means for the starting quarterback battle, as it stands now, Doege likely jumps to the head of the pack. Head coach Neal Brown will be holding his weekly press conference at 2PM today, and most believed a starter would be named at that time.
