Indianapolis junior taking visits

Indianapolis (Ind.) Ben Davis class of 2013 safety Antonio Allen did not take any visits during the fall, choosing instead to put the focus on his junior season. Now that his season has ended, though, Allen is on the road checking out schools.
"I am visiting Cincinnati [Monday]," Allen said. "I'm just looking to see a good practice, see what they are about and see if they are a good program for me."
The visit to Cincinnati will be Allen's second of the month. He previously visited Kentucky, and has been offered by both schools. Indiana is the latest to offer, but he has yet to make his way down to Bloomington.

"I haven't been down there yet because they just offered two weeks ago and we just got done taking finals," Allen said.
Allen's first offer came in from Iowa, and the Hawkeyes continue to pursue the Indianapolis junior hard. He makes a weekly call to Iowa City to chat with their coaching staff.
"I talk to Coach Eric Johnson every Sunday. I just got off the phone with him," Allen said. "We usually talk about family things and we'll talk about the Colts and the Packers too."
An offer from Purdue gives Allen a total of five tenders at this stage of the process, and more teams are starting to show interest in the 5-11, 194-pound safety.
"Ole Miss came in and I have talked to them," Allen said. "They said they are going to look at my film, and if it looks good they are going to offer me."
Allen is in no rush to end his recruitment, and he plans to take his time weighing his options. He is coming off a junior season in which he recorded 114 tackles and one interception.
