Exp: Redshirt Freshman
Denicos Allen is a player Spartan fans learned in the spring they'll need to keep an eye on. After starting his college career as a safety, Allen moved to linebacker in the spring and started to show why the Spartans worked hard in signing him. How much Allen will do this fall is yet to be seen, but Spartan Digest feels he could be one of the surprises for the 2010 season.
Strengths: Speed and willingness to hit
Weakness: College game experience.
Overall: Denicos Allen is a player I've watched for the last two seasons of high school. Now, his body has been taken to a new level and he's got the physical tools to be a highly productive player in the Spartans defensive scheme.
Why He Made The List: After a strong spring showing Allen is a player capable of having a big season. We may look back and see he was ranked too high, but much should be expected of him this fall.
