And then there were two

Spruce Derden-USA TODAY Sports

The starting QB for 2014 will now most likely be Kyle Allen or Kenny Hill after the announcement of Matt Joeckel's transfer.

According to SB Nation, The University announced Wednesday morning that senior QB Matt Joeckel, the most experienced of the Aggie signal-callers, will be transferring. Joeckel will be eligible to play in the fall of 2014 since he has already graduated.

This leaves the door wide open for either sophomore Kenny Hill or early enrollee Kyle Allen to nab the starting position. Hill saw action in four games in 2013, going 16-for-22 with one TD and no interceptions. He's considered the more mobile of the two QBs, with Kyle Allen being more of a pro-style passer.

With the 2013 transfer of Jameill Showers to UTEP and the early entrance of Johnny Manziel into the NFL Draft, the position may seem a bit precarious at the moment, especially with Kenny Hill's arrest last month. But Coach Sumlin was able to conjure up some magic two summers ago after the team churned out a top-10 draft pick at QB and an unproven quantity with a similar police run-in took the reins in fall practice and didn't look back.

This is where we'll find out how good our coaching staff really is, especially Coach Spavital. The summer just got a little bit more interesting.

Thanks to Matt for his dedication to the team and best of luck to him in the future. Bruce Feldman thinks he might stay in-state.

Sophomore Conner McQueen seems to have wrapped up the third string spot at Quarterback.
