With camp season right around the corner, many prospects are looking forward to the opportunity to grab the attention of coaches and get that extra exposure they might need to land offers. San Diego (Calif.) Cathedral Catholic junior cornerback Hunter Allen is one of the prospects looking to impress several programs at various camps, including one in which Jim Harbaugh will be in attendance.
“I have heard from Michigan,” Allen told The Michigan Insider. “They invited me to their satellite camp in the San Diego area. I will be there for sure. I am interested in Michigan. It’s a great program with an elite coaching staff that can really help me elevate my game. I really do see myself being a Michigan man and playing for the big blue.”
If the Maize and Blue were to pull that trigger and extend an offer?
“It’ll really let me know that all my work has paid off, but is far from over,” Allen replied. “It will lead to an opportunity that I’ve been striving and grinding for my whole life.”
While the offers have yet to pour in for the under the radar corner, he is definitely hearing from a whole host of schools and plans on making many trips once his senior year arrives.
“The process has been going well,” said Allen. “No offers at this point in time, but I’m seeing major interest coming from Arizona State, Arizona, Fresno State, San Jose State, San Diego State, Colorado State, Louisville and Boston College.”
“I’m going to take my official to Louisville right when I hit my senior year and I’m also going to Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado State and San Jose State. I also plan on visiting Michigan as soon as I’m a senior too.”
Allen recently displayed a very impressive performance at The Opening in Oakland and is still competing and hopes schools see what he offers in his game to eventually receive that first scholarship.
“I’m very fast and explosive,” the 5-11, 175-pounder said. “I’m a smart and aggressive player who’s extremely coachable. I’m said to be very versatile although I prefer playing pressed up on a receiver to show him my strength and who is boss.”
