"I'm just running track right now," said Asher Allen. "We have regionals next week, and I'll be doing the 100, 200, and 4x100 relay."
Allen's list of offers has continued to grow, even if it's not at the same pace
that he runs the 100 meters.
"I'm up the 13 now. It kind of slowed down for a while, but then I got my
SAT scores out and it picked back up. I got a 990 on the old SAT, and I just got
my score back on the new SAT and it was a 1,400."
Does Allen want to play the field, or does he have a pretty good idea of where
he'd like to go to school?
"I'll probably end up in the SEC or the ACC, but I'd consider a big time
school away from here. Oklahoma has been sending me a lot of mail, but they
haven't offered yet. I'd consider a team like that. Otherwise, I'll probably
stay in the south somewhere."
Allen played running back and free safety, and he
will get some time to play corner this year. Where would he like to play on the

pounding for a long time at his size. I just love the game of football. I just
want to play."
Allen certainly isn't ready to concede anything yet though.
"I read all the time how I'm not as strong as (former teammate) Thomas Brown. Thomas was benching 385 when he left here, and I'm doing 350 right now. I
may not look it, but I'm that strong too," Allen said with a good natured
Allen has been talked to by schools to play on either side of the ball on the
next level. He's the type of student athlete that coaches worry about signing
first, where to play him second.
