Allen Commits To K-State On Visit

MANHATTAN, Kan. - Chance Allen made his second trip to Manhattan during the weekend and left convinced he had found the right program. The 6-foot-5, 300-pound offensive lineman, from Spring, Texas in the Houston area, gave his verbal pledge to the Wildcat coaches after watching the Purple/White spring game.

"The visit went so well I decided to commit," said Chance Allen. "I just love the town of Manhattan. The campus there is beautiful. The coaching staff is great. Out of all of the colleges I've visited there's had more of a family feeling, and that's what I was looking for. They were the most welcoming. I gave my commitment to Coach Dimel, my recruiter, and Coach Dickey. They were both ecstatic when I told them."

Allen who had been offered by Kansas State while on a Junior Day visit in February came back with his mother, father, and younger sister.

"My parents thought it was a good fit for me," Allen said on his decision. "The coaches like me at tackle. The offense is very similar to what we run at Klein Collins. We enjoyed watching the spring game. They looked pretty good. I think they're going to do really well this year."

Now with his commitment out of the way Allen turns his focus towards his senior year at Klein Collins. As a junior tackle, Allen was named 5A/District 13 Honorable Mention on an 8-3 Tiger team.

"We start spring practice on Monday," said Allen. "Coach Dimel said he would be down to see me the following week. I'd like to have a big senior season and get All-District, All-State, All-American, and, of course, win a state championship."

Allen is on track to graduate from Klein Collins next May with a current 4.1 GPA. This spring he took unofficial visits to Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Tulsa, Kansas, and Rice. Presently, Allen has one other offer to his credit from Lamar.
