Nate Allen is the latest commitment from the Bulls and the third quarterback to verbal this recruiting season. With no QB's leaving and at least three more on the way, it's sure to be an interesting summer. However, the Bulls are not just loading up on any kid that wants to throw the ball, Nate Allen is a stud. His senior year he threw for over 1,400 yards and 9 scores. All this while recording 76 tackles, 4 picks and one returned for a touchdown.
"I looked around at other schools" says Allen, "but in the end I liked what coach Leavitt is doing, and wanted to be a part of it. They told me I would have a shot at quarterback and that's what I want to do"
What is Allen's take on the logjam at the QB position?
"I want to come in and compete, but if I need to take a redshirt I will." Adding, "If I were to sit a year it would only help me learn the offense better."
Allen credits his high school success to his work ethic, running ability and accuracy.
"My biggest strength is that I'm a competitor. I doesn't matter what it is I just want to win all the time."
He says over the summer he's going to work on arm strength, "because you can never have enough".
Allen is also quite the basketball player, but would he ever consider playing for USF?
"That's not why I'm going, but if they were to bring it up, I would consider it." Adding, "I would think about it but I'm probably just going to play football."
As of now Allen only has one visit planed and that's to USF sometime in mid-to-late January. He doubts he will visit any other schools and feels content with the commitment he gave to the Bulls.
