The 6-foot-4 240 pound tight end made an early commitment to the University of Georgia and updated the status of that decision.
"I am committed to Georgia . I am not really considering any other schools at this time, but I have not visited anyone besides Georgia yet. The Georgia visit was great. I got to bond with the coaching staff and the players."
That has not stopped other schools from recruiting one of the best prospects in the state of North Carolina .
"I have had coaches from Florida State (John Lilly and Chuck Amato), Miami (Marquis Mosley and Patrick Nix), North Carolina , South Carolina (Brad Lawing), Georgia , NC State, Virginia Tech(Charley Wiles), and Clemson(Chris Rumph) visit me so far. The visits went well. They will help me decide which official visits to take."
The Fayetteville , North Carolina native remains a top priority for the Hurricanes, who do not have a tight end committed yet.
" Miami has a great coaching staff. Coach Barrow who is recruiting me is a great guy. I like the tradition at Miami . It is one of the schools I am looking at."
Allen who also plays on his school's basketball team( Terry Sanford High School ) plans to make 4 more visits by signing day.
"I am going to take all my visits. The only school I will visit for sure is Virginia Tech. I am not sure about the other 3 visits yet."
Allen had 30 receptions for 300 yards and 4 touchdowns his senior season and his team finished a disappointing 6-6. He remains committed to Georgia , but is keeping his options open. Whichever school lands Allen will not have to worry about him getting into school.
"I am qualified academically. I have a 3.0 core GPA and a 1040 on the SAT."
