Quarterback Allen Picks Texas A&M; Harris Drops Aggies From List

Quarterback Kyle Allen from Desert Mountain High School in Scottsdale, Ariz., announced his commitment to Texas A&M on Monday.

Allen chose the Aggies over Ohio State, Oklahoma, Notre Dame and UCLA.

Allen, who’s ranked the nation’s No. 5 pocket passer by ESPN RecruitingNation, decided on Texas A&M after spending the weekend considering what was most important to him in a school.

“I ended up with Texas A&M by far,” Allen told ESPN. “It met the criteria of what I wanted. I was really excited about it.”

The commitment by Allen has helped move Texas A&M to No. 1 in the Rivals Team Rankings for the class of 2014. The Aggies’ 12 commitments ranks second in the SEC to Tennessee, which dropped to No. 2 in the national team rankings.

Allen’s commitment to Texas A&M means the Aggies are no longer in the running for quarterback Brandon Harris from Bossier City, La. He released the following statement (in a very classy manner) following the news of Allen’s announcement:

Harris, who’s ranked the nation’s No. 5 dual-threat quarterback by ESPN and Rivals, is still considering Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Ole Miss, Baylor and Ohio State. He plans to announce his decision on July 18.
