QB Kyle Allen commits to Texas A&M

Highly touted quarterback prospect Kyle Allen from Scottsdale, Arizona has chosen the Aggies of Texas A&M.

Allen narrowed his college search last week to five schools, according to Bleacherreport.com. The list featured Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M and UCLA.

On July 3 the list was down to one and in a message on his Twitter account Allen announced, “I will be playing my college football for Coach Sumlin at Texas A&M University!!.”

The 6 foot 4 Allen is ranked number 128 in ESPN’s top 150 player rankings and the number five-pocket passer in the country. After finishing his high school career, Allen will join the Aggies in 2014 as a possible replacement for Heisman winner Johnny Manziel in the future and could see playing time very soon if Johnny the legend moves on to the NFl ranks early.

The quarterback is the twelfth commit for Texas A&M who is coming off one of their best recruiting years in school history after finishing number eight in 2013.  Allen will be one of three athletes competing to back-up Johnny football.
