Miller Safrit/ESPN.comDevon Allen is intrigued as much by Michigan's academic reputation as its football credentials.ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Wide receiver Devon Allen heard about Michigan as a college choice before he ever considered it as a football program. He excels in academics as a junior at the prestigious Brophy Prep School in Phoenix, and his high school pushes its students to attend top universities like Michigan.
"There are a bunch of kids at my school, which is one of the best schools in the nation, that are thinking about going there," said Allen, who would like to study engineering. "It's one of the big things for me. My dad has instilled that in me."
