Allen Now a Solid Verbal

Nearly a month ago offensive lineman Aaron Allen turned some heads when he revealed he was a soft verbal commitment for Oklahoma.

Now the 6-8, 315-pound tackle is a solid verbal and has closed his recruitment.

"Aaron is now a solid verbal for OU," said Allen's father. "No one else is in the running right now. He just decided that Oklahoma is where he wants to be."

Previously Allen had received an offer from Kansas State and was hearing from coaches at Kansas and Colorado State as well.

While Hugoton High School finished the season with a disappointing record Allen has received numerous accolades for his individual performance. He was selected to the Elite 11 team for his area and was a first team all-conference choice.

"He's still been talking to the coaches from OU, especially Coach Wilson. He's excited about going up there and helping them win games."
