Ricardo Allen is a four-star cornerback prospect from the Sunshine State. Alenn, 5-9.5 and 176 pounds, is from Daytona Beach Mainland High School. He says that he's off to a good start.
"We are 3-2 and I think I am having a good season. For me my coverage is better. My technique is much better. I worked hard in the off-season.
"I am the type of defensive back that can cover and can come up and hit. I love to hit but I play my assignments first."
Allen is going to Purdue for an official visit with his teammate O.J. Ross next weekend. It will be his first official visit.
"I also want to visit South Carolina and Michigan. I will wait until after season. I am pretty open with everyone. Ole Miss, Arkansas, Clemson, South Carolina, Florida International, Florida Atlantic, Wake Forest, Purdue, and Michigan have offered me.
"Miami is recruiting me hard but I do not have an offer yet from them.
"In the end I am looking at coaching stability. Will the coaches be there? I am also looking for playing time."
