At the NorCal NIKE Camp a year ago, there wasn't a more impressive looking player than Fontana (Calif.) Bloomington athlete Jayson Allmond. Allmond worked out with the running backs but could play on either side of the ball in college.
Allmond is a rocked out t 6-1, 235 pounds and although we don't get too caught up in just how a player looks, the athlete showed at the NIKE Camp and on the field last season that he can play.
Working out with the running backs, Allmond was rated the top underclassmen at the position and projects as one of the top fullback prospects in the region. As a junior, Allmond played in a wing T offense and played more of a H-back role than a tradition fullback.
Playing linebacker, Allmond totaled 49 tackles and two sacks and could play inside or outside 'backer at the next level. Allmond is being recruited as an athlete right now but we like him at fullback in college.
On the recruiting front, things are a little slow with Allmond right now, which is a bit surprising for us. We do think he projects as a high Div I recruit.
"The schools that I've been hearing from so far are Oregon, Cal, Duke and LSU," Allmond said. "I grew up a UCLA fan but haven't heard from them yet. Right now, Cal is my top school and I also like Miami, Arizona State, Oregon and Oklahoma.
"I want to major in Business in college so that will play a big role in where I decide to go. Right now, I'm just working out really hard, weight lifting, running and watching what I eat. I'm going to the NIKE Camp at USC in April but I'm not sure about the rest of my summer plans right now."
