“It was just a bunch of competition going out there working,” Allen said of the Auburn camp. “We all just came out and worked and grinded out.”
One of the highlights of the day for Allen was having the opportunity to work with Coach Travaris Robinson and for Auburn defensive coordinator Will Muschamp. While it was his first time around them for instruction, Allen said what he was taught matched up perfectly with what he has already learned because of a connection with his coach at Lassiter.
“The funny thing is my coach, Coach (Cedric) Dickerson was coached by these guys (played for Muschamp at Valdosta State),” Allen said. “He sort of teaches the same way at my school so the technique wasn’t much different. He teaches the same hard-nosed style, no messing up and do it perfect.”
Even though an offer hasn’t come yet from Auburn, Allen said that it could be coming soon. While he admits it would be another big step for him, right now his focus is on continuing to work on becoming a better player heading into his sophomore season with the Trojans.
“He (Muschamp) said he was going to offer,” Allen said. “They just have to clear it first. That would mean the same thing the Georgia offer meant, that I have to keep working and let people know that I’m here. I know people are looking at me now, so I have to keep grinding everyday. Nothing changes.”
