Commitment Comes Quickly After Offer
Allen confirmed the pledge to the Ducks with several sources from FoxSportsNext on Friday afternoon.
Allen was rumored to have UCLA as the front-runner for months. Several times he named a top five and Oregon did not make the cut. That likely being because the Ducks had only offered a track scholarship.
The Phoenix (Az.) Brophy product also tripped to Stanford, Florida State, UCLA and was expected to visit Arkansas the weekend of Feb. 1st.
Allen is nationally ranked in both hurdle events, breaking the all-time Arizona record in the 110 and 300 meter hurdles. But the Ducks are getting a big time prospect, not just a track guy playing football.
