Oklahoma QB Drew Allen considering transfer

By Tom Fornelli | College Football Writer

Oklahoma quarterback Drew Allen, with one year of eligibility left, is exploring his options as he considers a transfer to a new school.

"I have a permission to contact form that allows me to look around, talk to other schools," tweeted Allen on Friday. "Doesn't mean I am transferring yet."

Even with Landry Jones graduating and moving on to the NFL, Allen does not see a lot of playing time for himself with the Sooners as Blake Bell, junior next season, took over the role of Jones' backup in 2012. There's also redshirt freshman quarterback Trevor Knight, who impressed coaches while running the scout team this season that could stand between Allen and the field.

Allen is scheduled to graduate in May. Should he decide to transfer, he would not have to sit out a year.

He did not play in 2012 but saw action during his freshman and sophomore seasons. Allen threw 30 passes in those two seasons, completing 18 for 160 yards. He also had five rushes for 17 yards and his only career touchdown.
