Illinois Football Recruiting: Virginia Tech Offers Brian Allen


Three-star 2014 center and defensive tackle recruit Brian Allen has received a ton of offers so far in his recruitment, and he received a major ACC offer on March 21st from the Virginia Tech Hokies. One of the top 15 prospects in the state of Illinois in the 2014 class, Allen translates best at the center position, but could also be a nice fit as a defensive tackle.

The Hinsdale, Illinois standout currently has offers from the Virginia Tech Hokies, Michigan State Spartans, Wisconsin Badgers, Boston College Eagles, Illinois Fighting Illini, Indiana Hoosiers, Iowa Hawkeyes, Kentucky Wildcats, Maryland Terrapins, Missouri Tigers, Ole Miss Rebels, and Purdue Boilermakers.

The conference that seems to be the most interested in Allen is the Big Ten. He has received offers from six Big Ten teams and the only Big Ten team not interested in Allen is the Penn State Nitany Lions. One Big Ten team I could see offering at Allen soon is the Northwestern Wildcats.

Allen is a 6’2″, 273 pound iron man from Hinsdale, Illinois. He is currently a junior at Hinsdale Central High School.

It seems as if Michigan State could be Allen’s favorite so far in his recruitment. This is because he is the younger brother of Michigan State 2011 signee, Jack Allen. (Source: 247 Sports)

Allen has future visits planed with Ole Miss on March 22nd and Florida on March 27th.

The three-star recruit is currently ranked 13th in the state of Illinois and 2nd among centers by 247Sports.
