The Tucker Pipeline to Continue?

<b>Asher Allen</b> is next in line to continue the great running back tradition of the Tucker Tigers, and like <b>Brandyn Young</b> before him and <b>Thomas Brown</b> before him, he is also an excellent defensive back that could see time on either side of the ball in college. Allen has a list of scholarships that totals a Lucky 7 thus far. Who are they, and does he have a favorite at this point?

"I played slot receiver, running back, free safety, and corner last year," said Asher Allen. "I've gotten offers from Georgia, Georgia Tech, Illinois, Duke, Maryland, Ohio State, and Vanderbilt. Some of the schools are recruiting me at running back, some of the schools are saying corner, and some are just saying 'athlete'. I don't really care; just put me on the field."

Allen took in junior day in Athens, and it looks like the home state Bulldogs could continue their Tucker Pipeline.

"I had a whole lot of fun there. I've been up there two times so far. I got a chance to talk with all of the coaches, and with Thomas (Thomas Brown) and stuff. I've been invited to some other junior days, but I'm not sure which ones I'm going to."

Any leaders amongst his seven offers?

"I haven't really visited that many campuses, so I can't really say anything, but I've been to Georgia a lot. I've always been a fan of Georgia. More than likely I'll have my decision before the season starts next year."

In the meantime, Allen stays busy on the field and in the classroom.

"I'm running track again this year. I run the 100, 200, and the 4x100. I went to state in the 100 last year, and I want to win it this year."

Allen also works just as hard in the classroom.

"I have a core 3.4 GPA right now, and last semester I got a 3.85. I took the SAT when I was a freshman, and I'll take it again soon."

Allen scored high enough on the SAT to be a full qualifier as a freshman, but he is a competitor off the field as well as off the field, and is looking forward to posting an even higher score.
