Running back Alex Allen saw some varsity playing time as a freshman before moving into the starting lineup at safety at the beginning of his sophomore year. Allen moved to running back for his junior season.
Allen rushed for 1100 yards, averaged 8.6 per carry, and scored 10 times. The 6-foot-1 and 195 pounder was an all-conference selection.
"Michigan, Ohio State, Oklahoma, West Virginia," Allen said. "There's so many schools recruiting me."
"I'm looking at Michigan, Ohio State, I'd say Oklahoma, Wisconsin, and possibly West Virginia."
"Michigan and Ohio State are my favorite colleges."
"I went to Michigan's spring game. I went to Ohio State for a spring practice. And I'll go to their spring game."
