As alluded to over the weekend, former Oregon wide receiver Chance Allen has officially joined Houston’s roster, and he brought a friend from the Pac-12 along for the ride. In addition to Allen, Houston announced the arrival of former Utah quarterback Adam Schulz.
A native of the Houston area, Allen signed with Oregon in 2012 and caught five passes for 98 yards and a touchdown in two seasons of action. He’ll have one season left to play in 2016 after sitting out the 2015 campaign.
Hailing from Muskego, Wis., Schulz walked on to the Utes’ roster and started the final three games of Utah’s 2013 season. In all, he threw for 1,091 yards and six touchdowns to go with 25 carries for 78 yards in eight career games.
With John O’Korn looking for a new destination, Schulz will provide reinforcements for a quarterback depth chart that features incumbent Greg Ward, Jr., (2,010 passing yards, 573 rushing yards, 18 total touchdowns) and no other FBS experience.
Houston also announced the additions of junior college transfer tight end Rusty Clark and high school wide receiver Devin Smith.
The group should provide depth to an offense that ranked 58th nationally in yards per play and 60th in scoring offense in 2014.
