COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Texas A&M quarterback Matt Joeckel will leave the school to try and use his final year of eligibility elsewhere.

Joeckel has graduated from A&M and won't have to sit out before playing elsewhere.

He appeared in five games last season and started A&M's opener when Johnny Manziel was suspended for the first half against Rice.

Joeckel threw for 293 yards and two touchdowns in 2013.

The move leaves the Aggies with freshman Kyle Allen, who was rated the top quarterback prospect in the nation, and sophomore Kenny Hill to compete for the job left open when Manziel declared for the NFL draft.
