Two visits remain for WR Devon Allen
By Erik McKinney
Wide receiver Devon Allen (Phoenix, Ariz./Brophy Prep) turned in an impressive performance in the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl on Friday night, as the 6-foot, 187-pound standout led the West team with six receptions for 67 yards and a touchdown.
Now, Allen will turn his attention to finishing off the recruiting process. With official visits to Florida State, Oregon and UCLA under his belt, Allen will visit Stanford on Jan. 11, then decide between Arizona State and Arkansas for his fifth and final visit, which will take place on Jan. 18.
"After that, I'll figure out what I want to do," Allen said. "Probably a week after that visit, I'll commit and call it a day."
Allen said he feels comfortable with his six finalists -- all the schools that have received or could receive visits -- and hasn't begun to narrow it down further. Before his final decision, he'll need to figure out what school will receive that final visit.
"I'm going to go home and think about it and talk to both coaches again," Allen said. "Arkansas recontacted me after the coaching change. Early on, they were one of my favorites. I had an official visit set up but canceled at the last minute because of the coaching change."
