Drew Allen, a senior quarterback at Oklahoma with one year of eligibility remaining, is transferring to Syracuse, he told The Post-Standard's Michael Cohen in an interview Friday.

"It is the toughest decision of my life just because of the uniqueness of the situation," Allen told Cohen."Coming out of high school, I was basically deciding where I was going to go for the next four or five years of my life. With this, it was a decision that would span a matter of months -- a one-year deal.

"So it's been a long process, and I'm really excited that it's come down to me going to Syracuse."

Allen was a three-star recruit coming out of Alamo Heights High in San Antonio, redshirting in his freshman season. But he fell behind Landry Jones, and he would find stiff competition for a starting role with the Sooners next season.
