In reply to: Jack Hatfield 's message, "Dartmouth Lands Florida Gator QB Transfer" on 09:06:37 06/02/18 Sat

According to an April, 2018 article in seccountry.com:

“Allen was the odd man out in the Gators’ quarterback competition, rotating in behind redshirt sophomores Feleipe Franks and Kyle Trask as well as freshman early enrollee Emory Jones in the Spring game Saturday.”

The seccountry.com article goes on to say that Florida is switching to a spread offense and that Allen posted “...because the offense is not the right fit for me, and because I want to continue to pursue my dream to play in the NFL, I am now seeking other opportunities to play football and am opening up my recruitment.”

Penn's Gavin Hoffman transferred from Northwestern for pretty much the same reason (i.e., coaching change and different offensive scheme).

He ended up doing pretty well for the Quakers.

Hoffman started all 12 games for Northwestern in 1998, passing for over 2,000 yards He transferred to Penn when the coach left, a new coach was hired and he was not the starting QB coming out of Spring practice. Hoffman was an excellent starter at Northwestern and at Penn.

Hopefully, Allen will be a fine QB for Dartmouth and benefit greatly from his Dartmouth education. However, comparing a starting Big Ten QB to a fourth string redshirt freshman who has never played a game of college football is a bit much, don’t you think?

Saying that he was a starting Big 10 QB is technically accurate.

The guess here is that he would have been a bit lower on the depth chart his freshman year if he was at a middle-of-the-pack Big 10 team or better.
