Allen keeps grabbing offers

There is no problem with South Grand Prairie offensive tackle Tray Allen's early recruiting process as he had previously grabbed three offers from Big 12 schools and just added two more from the conference.
The 6-foot-4, 285-pounder is being talked about as one of the nation's top offensive tackles and one of the best to come through the Dallas area in some time. Since offers came in from Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, and Texas Tech, two more programs have jumped into the mix.
"Oklahoma and Kansas State have offered now," Allen said. "They're good schools, really good schools. I'm still sitting back though and weighing all the options."
Allen may be sitting back, but he's also not quiet about his long-time leader.
"Texas A&M is still the favorite," Allen said. "It's because they were the ones first on me and I have a good chance of playing early for them. The coaching staff is really good as well and they're a really good group of guys."
Early on, Allen thought that he would make an early decision but talk of a big, public announcement may change that.
"I've had the option presented to me about playing in an all-star game and then committing at that," Allen said. "I still need some time to wait it out and have some family decision time, so that may be good actually."
Camps will definitely be a priority for Allen. Though the offers are rolling in, he still wants a chance to compete at several different events this summer.
"I will definitely do Texas A&M and Texas, but I want to go out-of-state as well," Allen said. "I want to get to Notre Dame, Oklahoma, and probably LSU. I'm going to try to go to Florida and see some of those schools as well. That's a maybe right now."
