To no one's surprise, Rivals100 offensive tackle Tray Allen has added more offers to his collection in the past few days. Just over a week ago, he had made his total five offers but it looks like three more schools are jumping in the mix.
Previously, Texas A&M, Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Kansas State, and Texas Tech all had made their offers known for the 6-foot-4, 305-pound talented young man. Allen was informed by mail and from his coach that the count will surely not stop there.
"I've got them now from Ole Miss, Baylor, and my coach says that LSU has so as well," Allen said. "My coach also told me that Southern Cal is coming after me hard now. I'm just experiencing it now man. I'm just sitting back."
As well he should. Allen could be the state's top prospect when just looking at sheer number of offers so far. His big frame continues to get bigger and for a player that hasn't been playing varsity football for more than two years, his potential is sky high.
Allen is still quiet about a true leader when asked, but he still contends that one in-state school has what he likes to call an "edge."
"I have to say it's evening out, but A&M still holds that edge over everybody," he said. "They recruit me real hard and I can't ignore that."
When asked about the new offers, Allen can't hide a laugh at the way his recruiting has blown up.
"It's great man," he said. "You have to feel good looking at all of these great schools."
Allen will head to Oklahoma State this weekend and then head to Texas after that for junior days.
