With one quarterback set to join Texas A&M another is reportedly on his way from College Station, Texas, to Houston.
Former Aggies quarterback Kyle Allen is set to transfer to Houston, a source told the Houston Chronicle’s Joseph Duarte.
The news comes less than 24 hours after former Oklahoma quarterback Trevor Knight announced he would be transferring to Texas A&M.
Allen, a former 5-star recruit, will be forced to sit out the 2016 season. He still has two years of eligibility remaining.
Allen was the first of two Aggies quarterbacks to request releases from the university. A week after Allen was granted his release, the school did the same for Kyler Murray.
The sophomore appeared in 10 games this season, passing for 2,210 yards, 17 touchdowns and seven interceptions. In 2014, Allen replaced Kenny Hill, then won the starting job out of camp.
Allen engineered Texas A&M’s 5-0 start, but was benched midway through the season as the team dropped games against SEC West foes Alabama and Ole Miss.
Overall, Allen leaves Texas A&M with a 9-4 record in 14 career starts.
