Brandon Allen is listed as the first-team quarterback on Arkansas' post-spring practice depth chart.
Razorbacks coach Bret Bielema says the sophomore impressed throughout the team's first 15 practices under its new head coach, particularly over the past two weeks and during Saturday's Red-White game.
Allen has been in a competition with senior Brandon Mitchell to become the Arkansas starting quarterback and replace Tyler Wilson under center.
Allen was 11 of 16 for 158 yards and a touchdown in four first-half series in the spring game, while Mitchell was 12 of 17 for 138 yards - including an interception.
Bielema says he plans to talk to Mitchell on Wednesday about the possibility of also seeing action at wide receiver, though Mitchell says he doesn't view the competition as finished.
