There’s been quite the noteworthy addition to Ye Olde Portal.
According to a tweet from Matt Zenitz of al.com, Jett Duffey has taken the first step in possibly leaving Texas Tech by placing his name into the transfer database. As the redshirt junior quarterback would be leaving Lubbock as a graduate transfer, he would be eligible to play for another FBS program in 2020.
The upcoming season will serve as his final year of eligibility.
Duffey, a three-star 2016 signee, has started 11 games during his time with the Red Raiders. Eight of those starts came in the last eight games of the 2019 regular season.
In 10 games total this season, Duffey has passed for 2,840 yards, 18 touchdowns and five interceptions in completing just over 65 percent of his 367 pass attempts. He has thrown for 300-plus yards in five straight games and seven times overall in 2019, including a season-high 424 in the early October win over Oklahoma State; his career-high is 444 against Texas last November.
Last season, Duffey became the first Red Raider quarterback to lead the team in rushing (339 yards) since Joe Barnes in 1973.
