The University of Houston’s recruiting load in 2016 just got a bit larger. Already benefitting from the third best class in the state behind Baylor and TCU, the Cougars are on the verge of landing former five-star QB and Texas A&M starter Kyle Allen. The news was originally reported by Fox 26 Houston.

Allen made his intentions to transfer known on December 10th, weeks before Texas A&M’s bowl game. The sophomore lead A&M to a 5-0 mark at the beginning of the season before a thumb injury cause him to struggle mightily against Alabama. He finished his 2015 season completing 56.5% of his passes for 2,210 yards with with 17 touchdowns and 7 interceptions.

Allen’s transfer is the second announcement in as many weeks for former Aggie quarterbacks. Just before the Orange Bowl, former five-star recruit aKyler Murray announced that he was transferring to Oklahoma.

The Cougars finished the year 13-1 with a 38-24 Peach Bowl victory against Florida State. With the addition of Allen, who wouldn’t be available until the 2017 season per NCAA transfer rules, the Cougars would have a stockpile of options at QB including starter Greg Ward Jr., backup Kyle Postma and incoming freshman Bowman Sells.
