Xavion Allen is a talented speedster who can play on both sides of the ball.
The rising senior from Ed White high school in Jacksonville caught the eye of Southern Miss defensive backs Coach Dan Disch.
"Yes sir, Southern Miss offered me today at 2:00, I was thrilled about the offer," Allen told GoldenEaglePride.com.
"They had a good season last year but they could be even better. I'm planning on visiting the school sometime later in the spring, either in April or May."
Allen (5'10, 170) can play on both sides of the ball as a defensive back or a wide receiver who can take it all the way because of his explosiveness.
The offer to Southern Miss is the first for Allen.
"It just feels so good to see my hard work and dreams come to a reality in this offer," he said.
