Jeff George Jr. finds another new home
Jeff George Jr. is on the move again.
Monday, the son of former Illinois quarterbacking great Jeff George was confirmed to have moved on to Pittsburgh to continue his collegiate playing career. Panthers head coach Pat Narduzzi stated that the university is still trying to determine if the graduate transfer is eligible to play this coming season.
Regardless of what the verdict is for 2018, George Jr. will have one final year of eligibility he can use in 2019.
George Jr. transferred to Michigan from Illinois, but didn’t last in Ann Arbor long–five months in total with zero games played.
In starting five games last season, George was the Illini’s leading passer after throwing for 1,273 yards. He accounted for seven of the Illini’s eight touchdown passes on the year, as well as 10 of their 19 interceptions.
Kenny Pickett is the starting quarterback currently for the Pitt Panthers, but that could change if George Jr. is granted immediate eligibility. Pickett played sparingly last season as a redshirt freshman, completing 39-of-66 passes for 509 yards with one touchdown and one interception.https://www.myfantasysportstalk.com/jeff-george-jr-finds-another-new-home/https://i1.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/636644830484623882-george.jpg?fit=534%2C401&ssl=1https://i1.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/636644830484623882-george.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1ACCBig TenNCAAFRecent PostsACC,Big Ten,Illinois Fighting Illini,Jeff George Jr.,Michigan Wolverines,Pittsburgh PanthersJeff George Jr. is on the move again.
