Terry Sanford HS Head Football Coach William Inman had a lot of praise for standout tight end - defensive end Dwayne Allen.

William Inman has seen some great players go through his program Terry Sanford high school, and Dwayne Allen of the best he has coached.

"I've coached Jonathan Hannah at Florida State and my son (Georgia's) Brandon Inman and Dwayne is as good as any," Inman praised.

Allen, 6-foot-3, 240 pound four-star tight end prospect, is a soft verbal commit to the University of Georgia. The Bulldogs are currently his leader.

"He has a favorite. It is Georgia," Inman said. "He took his official visit to Georgia already. He will take a couple more but there is no schedule, yet."

Despite his commitment to the Bulldogs, Allen is still listening to offers and at the end of the season will make some more official visits. According to his coach, Georgia, Clemson, Florida State, Miami, North Carolina, and North Carolina State have been in attendance to see him.

"He has a strong motor," Inman described. "He is a tight end and defensive end primarily. He's a heck of a tight end. Great hands, very quick, he has an eye for football., he knows how to work his way into open field. If it is in his reach, he'll catch it. He is a real powerful runner that is tough to bring down. An excellent all around football player."

Allen will be making the All-Star Game rounds soon. His coach will be with him every step of the way.

"He has the Shrine Bowl in a few weeks and then the All-American Classic on ESPN on the 6th of January," Inman said. "I'll make the trip with him. I'll also watch him play and see him in Spartanburg for the Shrine Game..

With a potential bright future ahead of him, his coach affirms that the most important thing to Allen is the education that is going to get. He carries a GPA of 3.0 and should have no issues with qualifying.

"Dwayne's education is real important," Inman said. The school and support system around him academically is very important because he wants to be successful."

"Also, his spiritual life is big. He wants to do right and be around people who do right. He also wants to be comfortable wherever he goes."

Allen will be eligible to enroll in the fall.
