Fayetteville (Ark.) juniors turning heads
September, 20, 2011
Fayetteville (Ark.) High School has four Class of 2013 prospects to keep an eye on, led by quarterback Austin Allen. The 6-foot-2, 210-pounder already has scholarship offers from Ole Miss and Tulsa. "His brother [Brandon] was the state player of the year last season and he has a chance to be that kind of guy," coach Daryl Porter said. "His brother was a talent, leader and competitor and Austin has the same exact traits. He can make all the throws. He can throw on the run and in the pocket. Austin has a quick release and a smart kid. He has some dual threat ability." In three games this year, Allen is 42 of 69 for 484 yards with 12 touchdowns and no interceptions. He's also rushed for 93 yards.
