Allen Committed to OU?
That is according to Allen himself, who identified himself as a soft verbal commitment for the Sooners.
"I've been verbally committed to OU for a little while now," said Allen. "I couldn't give you an exact date. I knew when I committed that I was still going to look around and maybe visit some other schools.
"I'm a soft verbal at this point, you could say. Technically I'm committed to Oklahoma, but I'm still interested in Colorado State, K-State, Kansas and Nebraska. I haven't sat down and thought about where or when I'm going to take my visits, but our season is over now so it will probably be pretty soon."
The 6-8, 315-pound lineman played on both sides of the ball for Hugoton, KS but is being recruited exclusively as an offensive tackle. Hugoton finished the year a disappointing 2-7.
"My only two offers right now are from OU and K-State but I'm pretty sure I'll get some others pretty soon here. Hopefully that will happen when I'm taking my officials. I've already unofficially visited OU, Colorado State, K-State, Nebraska, Kansas and Colorado, but I'll probably take officials to a few of those anyways."
What is it that Allen likes about Kansas State?
"The biggest thing is that they were the first school to offer," he said. "That still means a lot to me. It shows me that they sort of went out on a limb when nobody else had, and that they really want me there."
