Texas A&M may have just found its replacement for Johnny Manziel, whenever the Heisman Trophy winner decides to enter the NFL draft.
Meet Kyle Allen, future QB of Kyle Field.
Allen, a rising senior at Desert Mountain (Scottsdale, Ariz.) and the top-ranked pro-style quarterback in the class of 2014 by Rivals.com, announced his commitment on Twitter.

The 6-foot-4, 195-pound Allen was also considering Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma State and UCLA. Manziel has three seasons of eligibility remaining, but he could opt to enter the 2014 NFL draft.
Texas A&M football coach Kevin Sumlin, who isn't allowed to comment on unsigned recruits, was excited about something shortly after Allen announced. He probably just finished a really good sandwich.
