Western Kentucky QB Jarret Doege, who transferred to the Hilltoppers from West Virginia earlier this year, has re-entered the NCAA transfer portal, On3 has learned.

Doege, West Virginia’s starting QB the last two seasons, had been part of a competition for Western Kentucky’s starting quarterback job that also included West Florida transfer Austin Reed.

Doege threw for 3,048 yards with 19 touchdown passes at West Virginia last year after passing for 2,587 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2020.

He transferred to the Mountaineers in 2019 after beginning his college career at Bowling Green, where he compiled 2,660 yards and 27 touchdown passes as the team’s starting QB in 2018.

Transfer portal background information

The NCAA transfer portal, which covers every NCAA sport at the Division I, II and III levels, is a private database with names of student-athletes who wish to transfer. It is not accessible to the public.

Once a player’s name shows up in the portal, other schools can contact the player. Players can change their minds at any point and withdraw from the portal. However, once a player enters the portal, the current scholarship no longer has to be honored. In other words, if a player enters the portal but decides to stay, the school is not obligated to provide a scholarship anymore.

The database is a normal database, sortable by a variety of topics, including (of course) sport and name. A player’s individual entry includes basic details such as contact info, whether the player was on scholarship and whether the player is transferring as a graduate student.

A player can ask that a “do not contact” tag be placed on the report. In those instances, the players don’t want to be  contacted by schools unless they’ve initiated the communication.
