Michael Allen thought he would have to attend another Alabama prospect camp this summer before reeling in an offer. He was mistaken.
The 3-star defensive end from Buford, Ga., was offered by the Crimson Tide on Dec. 14. It marked his fourth offer to date.
“I’m surprised,” Allen told SEC Country. “I wasn’t expecting an offer so early. I thought they’d want me to come back for another camp.”
The 6-foot-6, 226-pound junior out of Lanier High School has primarily been recruited by defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt and defensive line coach Bo Davis. Allen is the teammate of Alabama target Derrick Brown, the top-rated prospect in Georgia.
Allen has also reported an offer from Vanderbilt.
He is rated as the No. 49 prospect in Georgia in next year’s recruiting cycle.
