Texas A&M QB Kyle Allen announces he will transfer
Kyle Allen’s career at Texas A&M is apparently over.
The sophomore quarterback announced that he is leaving the Aggies program Thursday night via his Twitter account. Allen started the 2015 season and played in 10 games. He threw for 2,210 yards and completed 56.5 percent of his passes. However, he was constantly battling freshman Kyler Murray for playing time.
It is unclear where Allen may transfer to. You can read the entirety of his message below:

The Aggies were thought to be one of the hottest teams in the nation when they began the season 5-0. However, a 41-23 loss to Alabama on Oct. 17 seemed to derail the season. Texas A&M lost four of their last seven games and finished fifth in the SEC West.
Even before the season, many thought it was just a matter of time until Allen gave way to Murray, who was a much ballyhooed high school prospect. While that eventually happened, Murray’s play opened the door for Allen to return to his starting spot, which he did in November. Now, it appears as if the starting job will be Murray’s to lose in 2016.
