Jarrett Guarantano is looking for a fresh start in Pullman.

Despite coming in as a Top 100, 4-star recruit, the New Jersey native never fully lived up to his potential in Knoxville as the Volunteers’ starting quarterback. With his remaining eligibility, he opted for a change of scenery, transferring to Washington State in January.

The talent’s certainly there for Guarantano, who joins a Cougars team that only played 4 games in 2020 due to the effects of COVID-19. The offense features a pair of first-team All-Pac 12 selections in offensive lineman Abraham Lucas and running back Max Borghi.

How will things fare for the Cougars in 2021? That remains to be seen. But while Pro Football Focus projects a 6-win season, it certainly doesn’t think Guarantano will have much to do with it, naming the potential of him starting as the team’s “biggest weakness” this season.

Needless to say, it’s certainly some very pointed criticism toward Guarantano. We’ll see how things turn out with his new program and inside a new conference.
