All three quarterbacks who started for Vanderbilt in 2019 are leaving the program.

Per a post on his Instagram page, it appears quarterback Deuce Wallace is departing the Vanderbilt football program.

Wallace appeared in eight games in 2019, attempting 101 passes and completing 43, throwing for 307 yards and four interceptions. He started the game at Florida, a week after playing most of the South Carolina game (both due to an injury to Riley Neal.) Aside from that, Wallace mostly got mop up duty.

What this means for Vanderbilt is that it’s now a certainty that the Commodores’ starting quarterback for the September 5 season opener against Mercer will be making his first start at Vanderbilt — and, unless it’s Allan Walters, will also be seeing his first game action at Vanderbilt. Vanderbilt started three different quarterbacks in 2019 and all three are now moving on. The Commodores will have a pair of newcomers — incoming freshman Ken Seals and JUCO transfer Jeremy Moussa — in for spring practice, and another incoming freshman (Mike Wright) will join the program in the fall.
