The 50 most important college players in Texas in 2017 — No. 12: Houston's Kyle Allen

Moving on from one of the best players in school history is always a tough task for a program, and the Cougars head into the season with a new coach leading the way as well. Fortunately, Allen has experience that most players at the Group of Five level lack after competing against SEC defenses for two full seasons. When Allen announced his decision to transfer to Houston, Major Applewhite (then the offensive coordinator) was one of the major reasons why. Now Allen will have a chance to help make Applewhite’s first season as a head coach a successful one.
