SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Top-rated quarterback recruit Kyle Allen has committed to Texas A&M.
The 6-foot-3 quarterback from Scottsdale Desert Mountain, Allen was rated as the nation's top pro-style quarterback in the 2014 class by Rivals and Scout. He announced via Twitter on Monday that he had chosen to play at Texas A&M after narrowing his list to Notre Dame, Ohio State, UCLA and Oklahoma State.
His tweet read, "I will be playing my college football for Coach Sumlin at TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY!! GIG EM!!"
Allen threw for over 3,100 yards and 36 touchdowns during his junior season and is expected to be the heir apparent to Johnny Manziel when last year's Heisman Trophy winner eventually leaves College Station.
