think I will come in and play and do good. I know I will have to work hard and
come in and get faster and quicker, but I think I will fit in good. I really think
I can make an impact for Ole Miss next year."
What were Allen's overall
impressions of the scrimmage on Saturday?
"It was pretty good. I think
the lines have gotten better. They have some real good running backs. I mean,
those boys are for real. When we all get there, I think we are going to be a pretty
good team. I really do."
What did Coach Orgeron say to Allen at the
"He just told me that he needed some receivers to come
in and play next year. He said their receivers were doing good, but they were
not as physical as we ('06 WR class) are. I think he is doing a good job at rebuilding
that program. We will win the SEC before we leave. I know that."
that Walker has had a chance to watch the college players; what will he have to
work on to make the adjustment?
"My quickness, mainly. I mean, I have
to get stronger too because their defensive backs lift more than I do. Everywhere
else, I think I am ready."
Has Allen had a chance to send in his paper
work to the NCAA clearinghouse?
"Yes sir, I sent in some stuff last
week. They told me I just have to maintain where I am at right now to qualify. All
I basically have to do is graduate."
When can Ole Miss expect to get
this talented young man on campus?
"As soon as possible. I will be
moving down there right after I graduate."
Are there any first year
goals for the 1st Team All-South pick?
"My first goal is to come in
running a 4.45 instead of a 4.55. Then I want to earn a starting position and
help us get to Atlanta. That is my ultimate goal. I want to put Coach Orgeron
on my shoulders after we win in Atlanta."
