Florida star picks Army

The Army Black Knights picked up another commit, this time from a speed wide receiver from the state of Florida.

Mark Allen (6-1, 185, 4.69 forty)
St. Cloud High School
St. Cloud, Fla.

It's fitting that during the week of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl that Army would be in the news with a football commitment.

Mark Allen of St. Cloud Harmony made his decision to go to West Point.

"Coach Mumford from Army visited with me yesterday," said Mark Allen. "I will be going on a visit after signing day, and he said I should be receiving my letter of appointment soon, which he said is like my offer. So I asked if this was the 'real deal' and he said it was. So I told him this is what I wanted to do and that is where I wanted to go."

It's just a matter of crossing the I's and dotting the T's for Allen as he has made his decision to attend West Point once his letter of appointment arrives.
