I was surprised when LM ended up at a power 5 school as a QB. My guess is there was some miscommunication between him and Coach Satterfield. LM opting to not enter the portal until the spring semester had started was also a big mistake.
LM waits till after spring semester starts so he A) is still on scholarship and B) can collect stipend, room and board, etc. He then enters the portal, talks to L'Ville who tells he'd have the opportunity to be a starting QB. Coach Satterfield meant it too, but without LM participating in spring ball he had no reason not to name Cunningham the starter. Satterfield may have even approached LM about a new position. LM felt that he was coming in to have a chance to start at QB this year, so he felt he'd been sold a bill of goods. As a result, back to the portal.
