Up to this point though, Armando Allen (5-10, 185-pounds) hasn't been in a rush to analyze all of his college football options, but that time is about to come.
"I really haven't looked into it yet, but I think next week I'm going to hit it hard," responded Allen when asked about his recruitment. "I want to find out all the things that I want and need in a school and then get it down to my top 10 choices.
"After that I'll just watch a lot of college football. I'll probably get it down to five during my season and then take my top five visits."
When Armando gets in front of the television he wants to find a school that will utilize his talents, and like most players he will look for schools that provide the best opportunity to get on the field early.
"It's not so much what they have to do," Allen explained when asked what teams would need teams would need to show him. "But I want to see how many running backs they have and how they perform on the field."
Up until this point Allen hasn't been focusing on his football recruitment because he wanted to concentrate on track. As it turns out his dedication paid off.
"It actually went pretty well," Allen responded when asked about his track season. "I won the state track championship in the 110-hurdles. I ran a 13.82. That was my personal best.
"We're starting our strength and conditioning program. I'm looking forward to it. I took a break and took some weekends off and I normally don't get to do that. I'm ready to get back to it and do what I do best."
As a junior Allen ran for nearly 1,000 yards and rushed for 12 touchdowns in nine games.
