Sophomore quarterback Kyle Allen said on his Twitter site that he is leaving Texas A&M.

Allen played in 10 games this season and threw for 2,210 yards and 17 touchdowns.

But he lost his job when he threw three interceptions in a loss to Alabama. Two were returned for touchdowns.

Texas A&M’s website reported that Allen has been granted his release.

Freshman Kyler Murray and Jake Hubenak have struggled to replace Allen. Murray is expected to start against Louisville in the Music City Bowl.

FoxSports.com reported that Oklahoma may be a landing spot for Allen, who is from Scottsdale, Ariz.

“Oklahoma comes to mind because it does fit all those things, and my old [high school] teammate [Mark Andrews] is a receiver there, and coach [Bob] Stoops is an all-time great coach,” Allen told FoxSports.com.
