WR Still Waiting for Offer

Atlanta wide receiver Brandon Allen is still waiting on a formal scholarship offer from the Tigers. It now appears he'll have to find out the weekend of January 10th, when he makes his official visit to Tiger Town.

Westlake wide receiver Brandon Allen is still waiting for an offer from wide receiver's coach Rick Stockstill or Burton Burns.

"Clemson is still my favorite," said Allen. I still think it looks real good right now in terms of me getting an offer. I'm still waiting to hear on my SAT, but if they offer me on my official visit then I'm going to go ahead and commit right then."

Allen could potentially be another receiver in the mold of current Tiger Kevin Youngblood and former Tiger Rod Gardner. The senior wide out brought in 57 catches for 1,418 yards and 17 touchdowns this season and is also the son of a coach.

"I like the long ball, I feel like I can always can go up and get it," said Allen. "I think that I could fit in really well in the offense up there with the things they like to do," added Allen.

What happens from here on out likely depends on several of the Tigers' other targets at wide receiver. Both Allen and Valdosta wide out Cory Clemmons are close to getting offers, but their chances of signing with Clemson will likely rest in the hands of Chris Jefferson and Terrell Allen.

Terrell Allen has already committed to Pittsburgh, but he is still scheduled to visit Clemson next weekend, and Jefferson has looked hard at Clemson from the very beginning, even though he has publically been favoring Vanderbilt for the past few weeks.

As it stands now, assuming Allen gets that test score back and everything looks good (which we think will happen) he'll likely be wearing orange next year.

After his visit to Clemson next weekend, he'll also visit Chapel Hill, Troy State, and possibly Middle Tennessee State later in January. Of course, all that could change should the Tigers move in with a formal scholarship offer.
