2018 Four-Star WR Loves Visit To Montlake

One of the top underclass wideouts in the West, 2018 Corona (Ca.) Centennial's Manuel Allen, was in Seattle this weekend to take part in the Rising Stars Camp and he updated Dawgman.com with his thoughts on the trip and where things stand in the recruiting process for him...


"I loved it there," Allen said as he waited for his flight home. "It was my first time ever in Seattle and I loved everything about it.

"The setting there is amazing and I loved the facilities. The coaches and players already were treating me like I was family and part of the program, so that was a great feeling too."

Allen has formed a strong relationship with Husky wideouts coach Bush Hamdan and that continued during his time on campus.

"We already had a great relationship, but it got even better this weekend," Allen said. "I got the chance to get coached up by him and see how he works with his guys and I also got a chance to get coached by coach (Chris) Petersen. I love the way he coaches too."

While Washington definitely made an impression on the young receiver, he said he's not close to making a decision.

"I have a lot of great offers to choose from, so I want to take my time," Allen said. "I don't see myself making a decision this year. I'm thinking it will probably be in the spring at some point, like May or June, so that I can focus on my senior season."

Next up for Allen is a trip to Nebraska to check out another one of his suitors.

"I am planning a trip out there before my season, but I'm not really sure just yet when it will exactly happen," Allen said. "I have a good relationship with the coaches there and I have heard really good things about it, so I want to check it out and see what the program and school is like in person."

Allen is rated the 10th-best wideout in the country by Scout.com and he was recently named to the 2018 Scout 300 (78).

We'll have more on Allen in the coming weeks and months and we will update news on him as it happens.
