Florida corner sets SEC visit
Ricardo Allen will be taking advantage of his team's bye week by taking an official visit to Purdue this weekend. "We're leaving tomorrow," Allen said. "It's me, O.J. (Ross) and Chevin (Davis). It's all our first visit so we're not sure what to expect. It should be a good game and we're looking forward to it." Last night the talented cornerback prospect set up his second official visit. "I talked to Coach Price from Ole Miss last night and he asked if I could come on a visit the weekend of December 5th," he said. "So that's my second one that I have for now." Allen talked more about his interest in the Rebel program. "They offered me a while back and have stayed in touch," he said. "They call me each week and I'm very interested in them. I don't know a whole lot about them yet but I know they're a winning team and Coach Price seems like a real good guy. Their cornerbacks coach (Vaughn) recruited my trainer (P.J. Smith) several years ago so there's a little connection there. I'm looking forward to getting up there and checking it out." Allen has been keeping busy talking to various college coaches lately. "The coach from Illinois called me last night and so did a coach from Clemson," he said. "I still talk to Coach Barrow (Miami) and Coach Trickett (FSU) each week. Coach Trickett is supposed to be coming to our game to watch me next week when we play Pine Ridge." Does anyone have the edge for the talented corner? "No," he said. "I don't have a leader or anything. I'm just waiting to see who all calls me and wants me to visit. There are a few schools, like USF and Virginia Tech, that I'd like to hear more from and I've been talking to a bunch of coaches each week." Allen, playing safety this season, and his Mainland team is state-ranked in the Class 6A rankings. Inside the classroom Allen claims a 2.8 overall GPA and a 17 ACT (re-taking next Saturday).
