Former Charlotte Christian quarterback Austin Kendall is returning to Cuthbertson for his junior season.
Kendall, a highly touted Division I recruit, started his career with the Cavaliers before transferring to Charlotte Christian to play for coach Jason Estep, who has helped place a number of players into major college programs.
Kendall was not present for Charlotte Christian at the Carolina Panthers’ 7-on-7 tournament on June 20, when the Knights battled their way into the the semifinals before falling to defending-champion Spartanburg Dorman.
As a freshman with Cuthbertson, Kendall threw for more than 1,500 yards and 18 touchdowns. With his return, the Cavaliers, who finished last season with a 4-8 record, will likely become a favorite to win their conference.
Kendall holds scholarship offers from numerous schools, including Kentucky, N.C. State, Tennessee, Boston College and Charlotte.
Charlotte Christian will turn to junior John Turley, whose performance impressed his coaches at the Panthers tournament.
