Scholarship offers were arriving frequently for the Scout.com 3-star prospect. Programs such as Boston College, Clemson, Georgia Tech, South Florida, Wake Forest and others were making strong attempts to gain the interest of Allen.
However, after making a couple unofficial visits, including a trip to the River City, the 6-foot, 215-pound Allen chose to bring the recruiting process to an end.
"It felt like home when I visited there," said Allen, who also strongly considered Boston College and Georgia prior to making his verbal commitment to Louisville. "They have a great tradition building there and I wanted to be apart of it."
"Yes sir, that helped," Allen said. "They have a great offense and I wanted to be apart of it."
While interest from school's around the country will likely continue, Allen told InsidetheVille.com that he's certain of his decision.
"Originally I was going to take my time to decide," he said. "I'm pretty much done with everything now."
