Quarterback Kyle Allen transfers to the University of Houston


Former Texas A&M quarterback Kyle Allen has decided he will play at the University of Houston.

The Houston football program announced the decision Tuesday and all the paperwork has been completed. 

Kyle Allen decided to transfer from A&M before their bowl game and freshmen Kyler Murray soon followed suit. Murray has since transferred to Oklahoma.

Allen ended his sophomore year starting nine of the 11 games. He completed over 56 percent of his passes for 2,210 yards and 17 touchdowns, but not without throwing seven interceptions.

In 2014 as a true freshmen, Allen started five of the nine game and completed more than 61 percent of his passes for 1,322 yards while tallying 16 touchdowns and throwing seven picks.

In Allen’s two years at College Station, he ran 146 yards and had three rushing touchdowns.

Allen sit out of the 2016 season because of NCAA rules, but after that he will have two years of eligibility left and can resume play starting in 2017.
