ESPN anchor Peter Burns took to Twitter to reveal his top SEC QB Power Rankings, and who he had at the top was none other than the Arkansas Razorbacks.
Austin Allen, the Hogs starting quarterback, is ahead of two big-time quarterbacks in Alabama’s Jalen Hurts and Auburn’s Jarrett Stidham.
Burns placing Allen and Arkansas at the top spot isn’t crazy, as Allen was very good for the Hogs last season, and he’s one of most-polished QB in the SEC coming into next season with so many young quarterbacks starting in the conference.
Another interesting note is that Vanderbilt, Kentucky, Tennessee, LSU and Texas A&M and Missouri all didn’t make his top-7 list with Ole Miss and Shea Patterson rounding out the order at No. 7.
Allen threw for 3,430 yards and 25 touchdowns in 2016 for the Arkansas Razorbacks.
