Florida Safety Likes Gamecocks
Antonio Allen, who runs the forty yard dash in 4.5 seconds, currently favors two SEC schools in the race for his services.
"South Carolina and Florida, but they (Florida) haven't offered me yet."
The head-hunting safety prospect was asked to comment on what he liked about each of his two favorites.
Florida - "I like Florida because it's close to home, and I'd get a chance to be with my family every now and then."
South Carolina - "At South Carolina I like the coaching staff and the defensive style."
Allen is teammates with Scout.com 4-star wide receiver Dion Lecorn, and the talented duo is planning on visiting South Carolina in the near future, though no date has been set. Allen did, however, give a timeframe for his decision.
"I'm most likely going to make it (a decision) at the end of the season."
Allen, who claims a 36 inch vertical leap, took the time to describe his strengths as a player.
"I've got a nose for the ball, I can find it. I'm also a good open field tackler."
After helping to lead his Trinity Catholic team to the Florida 2b state title last season, Allen has set a couple of individual goals for his senior campaign.
"I want to have at least 10 interceptions, about the same amount of tackles, and more touchdowns."
