"The amount of attention that they put into the care and injury prevention aspect of their athletes, rather than the recovery side of it," Allen said.
While on campus, the Sunshine State prospect talked to a few members of the coaching staff.
"Coach (Chris) Rumph, who's the recruiting coach for my part of Florida, just got to know me a little bit better," Allen said. "Then the players meeting with Coach (Jeff) Stoutland where we did chalk talk."
Allen, who is still looking for his first offer, talked about where he stands with Alabama after the visit.
"I'm under the impression that they try to get a very good understanding for their athletes before they put an offer on the table, which I respect very much," Allen said. "I know the interest is there definitely and the best thing I can do right now is keep my head low, and keep pushing, working hard.
"Coach Stoutland made it very clear the importance of getting to camp so he can work with you and fully evaluate," Allen added.
With his Alabama visit now concluded, Allen is turning his attention to taking more trips in the coming weeks and months.
"I have some brewing invites from Georgia Tech, Wisconsin, Louisville, UCF, Kentucky, and Mizzou," Allen said. "I'm just kind of taking my days in strides and getting to where I can get without missing class."
Academically, Allen expects to enter college with numerous credits due to the International Baccalaureate program.
