Allen's includes Clemson, Crimson Tide

Keenan Allen is arguably the most athletic rising senior in the state. The Northern Guilford standout is expected to be able to play safety or wide receiver in college, and schools talking to him are giving him the choice of playing offense or defense.

Yeah, he’s that good. So good that dad Scott Lang said this morning that Allen’s total number of scholarship offers is “in the thirties.”

Lang said his son, who has already camped at Alabama and Clemson and who recently took a west coast swing to camps at Oregon, Oregon State and California, will trim his list of favorites to five by the end of the summer.

And he said Allen, who is ranked No.4 on our N.C. Top Prospects list, is still wide open as to who will be on that list. But Lang did offer some clues.

“He really liked the atmosphere at Alabama and Clemson. And out west, he enjoyed his stops at Cal and Oregon.”

If your favorite school isn’t mentioned above, keep in mind that Allen has also visited most of the major universities in the area. And your team might pop up on that list of five.
