"I told them that I was ready to let everyone know I am going to LSU," Allen said. "I told Coach Porter and Coach Miles, and they loved it. I just have felt comfortable whenever I am in town, so I was ready to shut things down."
Allen (6-0, 250), who decommited from Tennessee after head coach Phillip Fulmer was forced out, paid his first visit to the Tigers for the Oct. 25 Georgia game, leaving with a new view on the Tiger program.
"The Georgia game was great," Allen said. "The crowd was into it and everything and my family had a great time. I just knew that I wanted to get back for a night game before the season ended."
That thought led Allen to last night, where he sat in Tiger Stadium and watched the Tigers mount one of the most remarkable comebacks in recent college football memory.
"Unbelievable," Allen said. "That is all I can say about that game. They never gave up, and things turned around. I have liked everything I have seen from LSU, and that is just another reason. It was great game and I am glad I got to be in Tiger Stadium to watch it."
Heading back to Paris, Tennessee, Allen will put his recruiting aside to focus on the last days of his high school career.
"We play Melrose in Memphis next weekend in the third round of the playoffs," Allen said. "I am just going get focused and ready for us to win that game. I was supposed to go to Georgia Tech next weekend, but I am going to pass on that now. I am with LSU and now I got to get ready to win state."
