On Tuesday, former Texas A&M quarterback Kyle Allen finally made his decision final about where he would transferring. He chose Houston over the other schools that were following him and he will be eligible to play in 2017 after sitting out the 2016 season.
He talked with FOX Sports’ Bruce Feldman and he said it was a pretty simple decision after the bowl season was finished.
“That [Houston’s 38-24 win over No. 9 FSU] was the icing on the cake,” Allen said on Tuesday after his decision was final.
He then went on to talk about Houston head coach Tom Herman and how he made a big difference in Allen’s decision to transfer there. He mostly accredited it to Herman recruiting him to come to Ohio State out of high school.
“I just have a lot of trust in Coach Herman. He had recruited me in high school [when Herman was at Ohio State]. I had gotten to know him extremely well. I know he can really help me grow as a man and get to the NFL.”
The Cougars finished off a 13-1 season that saw them reach a 10-0 record before finally falling to UConn in the regular season. They should be just as good in 2016 as they return many of their starters from this season.
