In a very shocking move, Texas A&M quarterback Kyle Allen has announced that he will transfer from the Aggies.

In a very much more shocking move, Cal is being listed as the favorite for the potential destination.
Allen had been the starting quarterback this season for the Aggies, leading A&M to a 5-0 start. But after an injury caused him to struggle the second half of the season, freshman Kyler Murray eventually won the job. There has been a lot of chaos this season about Texas A&M's quarterback situation, with neither Murray nor Allen standing out and the Aggies struggling as a result.
Allen hails from Scottsdale, Arizona and was considered the best pro-style quarterback recruit of the 2014 class. He completed 56.5% of his passes for 2210 yards and 7.8 yards per pass attempt in his sophomore season, to go with 17 touchdowns and 7 interceptions.
If transfer rules still hold, Allen would sit out the 2016 season and have two years of eligibility remaining at Cal as a junior in 2017 and 2018. So unless Jared Goff returns for his senior season, Cal will still have a very pressing quarterback competition going into next season, with Chase Forrest, Ross Bowers, maybe Luke Rubenzer, and incoming freshman Max Gilliam all likely to compete for the job.
UPDATE: Oklahoma wants in, to kill your buzz.
