"Those schools have all done a good job in building a great relationship with me," said Allen. "They have text messaged me and then I call them on the phone. It's been great."
Those three schools, along with Kansas State and Texas Tech, have offered Allen thus far. He will get many more offers in the future, as when we watched tape we were very impressed. The 25-yard drive block with the finish of planting the defensive tackle on his back was a nice touch.
Allen has a 340-pound bench press, 550-pound squat and a vertical leap of 22 inches. He is athletic and also plays AAU basketball, and throws the shot and discus in track at SGP. He has already made some important decisions in recruiting.
"I think I will go all the way through with it to signing day," said Allen, referring to February 2007. "I want to make the right decision and take all my visits. It doesn't matter where I go or how far away I go to school. My family wants me to get a good education and play football. I'm looking to study engineering."
That last thought could favor certain schools over others, especially Texas A&M and Oklahoma State which both have nationally ranked engineering programs.
Allen is also planning to do some traveling and checking schools out through the spring and summer.
"I'm going to go down to Florida and then up to check out Notre Dame," said Allen, who has the right idea of himself being a national recruit. "I will also go and check out LSU. Then I will hit the local schools in camps like O-State, OU, A&M, Texas, and I might try to go to Texas Tech."
