07:15 AM ET 01.26 | Oklahoma backup quarterback Drew Allen was given permission to explore other opportunities, making it possible he'll play his senior season elsewhere. Allen took to Twitter on Friday to address the situation. "I have a permission to contact form that allows me to look around, talk to other schools," Allen tweeted. "Doesn't mean I am transferring yet." Allen, who is on course to graduate in May but still has a year of eligibility remaining, could transfer to another Football Bowl Subdivision university and be immediately eligible. Blake Bell, a junior next season, supplanted Allen as Landry Jones' backup before the 2012 season. Since then, with Bell likely the favorite to start next season -- plus the emergence of redshirt freshman Trevor Knight, who starred on the scout team -- there has been speculation that Allen might transfer.

I scouted this kid when he was at Alamo Heights High School. He is pretty good and I have been surprised that he never has become the starter at OU.

If he's a decent QB, they could probably use him in Austin as a safety!

Graduations to you for getting your college degree. You have carried the clip board long enough, so transfer to a Division 1-AA school and enjoy for one year being a starting QB.
