Texas A&M could have a two-time Heisman Trophy winner on its campus in the spring if Johnny Manziel takes home the hardware.

At the start of the new semester, they'll also be getting the nation's No. 1 pro-style quarterback, Kyle Allen.

The Desert Mountain (Scottsdale, Ariz.) senior, who is the No. 13 recruit in the 247Composite, plans to graduate early and enroll at Texas A&M in the spring.

As a three-year starter, Allen racked up 8,201 career passing yards and 86 touchdowns.

Forty-eight of those touchdowns went to another blue-chip recruit, receiver Mark Andrews, who many thought would join Allen at Texas A&M but ultimately committed to Oklahoma.

Recently, Allen was named a U.S. Army All-American.

"It is a huge honor to me, not only to be named as one of the top players in the country, but also to play for my country as a football player," Allen told 247Sports. "Not many people get that opportunity ever, in college football or in the NFL, to play for your country and for the people that serve you. That means a lot more to me than football."

Shortly after the game, he'll make his way down to College Station where he'll be battling to back up, or even possibly replace, Johnny Manziel.
