Senior highlights of four-star defensive tackle Beau Allen, from Minnetonka (Minn.) High.

Beau Allen profile

Recruiting: Allen has narrowed his choices to Minnesota, Stanford, Notre Dame and Wisconsin and is expected to make a decision some time in the next few weeks.

Analysis: Allen is a tough, strong kid. He is well built all around and has a strong lower body, which allows him to hold his ground against the run. He does a solid job of getting off the ball, he plays with good leverage and gets good penetration. He does a good job with using his hands to shed blockers. He shows good effort, but has only average ability in pursuit. As a pass rusher, he relies on the bull rush and is capable of collapsing the pocket.

Overall: He is not the most athletic tackle I've seen, but Allen gets off the ball, is strong, powerful and has good technique. He is a good run stopper and that is valuable for any school. He has the strength and build to play right away and should be a rock in the middle of the defense for whichever school he chooses. Recommended Stories
