Drew Allen to transfer to Syracuse!
According to syracuse.com Oklahoma transfer Drew Allen will attend Syracuse with one year remaining of eligibility remaining. Allen picked Syracuse over NC State. The Syracuse QB competition is wide open after the graduation of Ryan Nassib.
Ironically, Nassib got his first experience sharing time with Duke transfer Greg Paulus. Paulus essentially acted as the go-between from the Greg Robinson Error to keep things sane until the next QB (Nassib) was truly ready to take over. The question this time will be who is Allen keeping the seat warm for?
This is a real interesting transition year for Syracuse and not just because of the move to the ACC. They have continued the Doug Marrone tradition of adding JUCO players. Most of these players were originally recruitied by Doug Marrone but the new staff essentially closed the deal on them. Now adding Allen, they may have lineups this yearthat are only in place as starters for a year or two. In the long term they HAVE to get back to their recruiting base. However, at least in the short term, adding Drew Allen is a great addition with no other QB standing out in spring ball.
