Wyatt Sparkman, Sports Editor

Former West Virginia quarterback Jarret Doege committed to WKU Sunday morning. He is the active leader in Division I in passing yards and touchdowns with 10,494 and 79, respectively.

Doege started 26 games as a Mountaineer from 2019-21. He threw for 6,453 yards and 40 touchdowns while completing 65% of his passes in his time at West Virginia. He earned Second Team All-Big 12 Honors for his play in 2020. 

Before his time in Morgantown, he was the first true freshman quarterback to start a game for the Bowling Green Falcons since 1982. He started 17 games in total as a Falcon. He led the Mid-American Conference in passing yards and touchdowns in 2018.

Doege joins three-star South Warren High School recruit Caden Veltkamp as another promising name the Hilltoppers can place under center in the near future.
