The NCAA 110m Hurdles Champion will participate in the Rio Olympics before returning to the gridiron with the Ducks

Devon Allen is officially off to the 2016 Rio Olympics after winning the 110m hurdles at the US Trials in Eugene over the weekend. Campus Insiders' Ray Crawford presents this video in examining what Allen has gone through to get to this point.

Allen will rejoin the Ducks following the Olympic games that run from Aug. 5 - 21. He would give him about two weeks with the team and he could easily be available for the opening game agains Cal-Davis on Sept. 3, and certainly he could back to full football speed by the second game against Virginia at Autzen Stadium on Sept. 10.

Last year coming off a knee injury suffered in the 2015 Rosebowl game, Allen had nine catches for 94 yards which was down from his freshman year in 2014 when he had 41 catches for 684 and seven touchdowns.
