Mitchell Jonke, quarterback for No. 4 Allen (Texas), announced Wednesday night that he would attend Brown, one of several Ivy League schools to offer him.
Jonke has performed well amid the spotlight that comes with playing for a national-level program. Last season, he was the successor to Kyler Murray, who never lost a game as the Eagles’ starting quarterback, and then ended up splitting time with four-star recruit Seth Green, who moved into the area and seemed destined to be the starter.
Allen had a perfect regular season last fall but came up short in the postseason, snapping a 57-game winning streak. As a junior, Jonke had 32 total touchdowns and threw for nearly 2,000 yards.
This season, as the clear starter, Jonke has Allen at 5-0 and has thrown for 784 yards with six passing TDS and has added three rushing touchdowns.
