Could Former 5-Star QB Kyle Allen Transfer to Oklahoma?

Quarterback Kyle Allen announced on Twitter Thursday night that he is transferring from Texas A&M.

Ideally, he said, he'd like to transfer to a Power 5 conference program that would have a QB who will be a senior in 2016 so he'd be able to compete for an open job in 2017 when he becomes eligible. One school that certainly fits that profile is Oklahoma, where junior Baker Mayfield has transferred into OU and became a star.

"Oklahoma comes to mind because it does fit all those things, and my old (high school) teammate (Mark Andrews) is a receiver there, and coach (Bob) Stoops is an all-time great coach," Allen said.

According to Allen, he has been released to transfer to any school except those in the SEC and future Aggie opponents. (FOX Sports) Allen, who is a true sophomore, will have two years of eligibility if he redshirts next season.

Take note who Allen just followed on Twitter.
