2014 Review
After redshirting, Alls appeared in all 13 games last season and primarily factored in on special teams in coverage. He did manage a pair of catches against Troy early in the season, but that was the extent of his role in the passing game.

  2015 Preview
After the season Alls was suspended from game competition by the program for failing to uphold the academic, athletic and community standards required of a member of the Blue Devil program. Despite the suspension, Alls has been allowed to practice with the team and enters his redshirt sophomore season listed third on the depth chart - a position that could change quickly should the player find a way to have suspension lifted.

TDD Projection
Alls is widely noted as the fastest of the wide receivers on the roster, and he’s got good size as well. In short there’s quite a lot of potential residing in the No. 86 jersey. Luckily for Alls, the suspension was merely from game competition and not practice and off-season workouts, meaning he shouldn’t be too far behind once he’s able to get back onto the field. Assuming he’s back, we think Alls could factor in as a deep threat capable of keeping defenses honest against a team that will have a lot of emphasis on the running game.
