Allen brings a solid frame to the tight end position, standing 6-foot-5 and weighing 220 pounds, according to 247Sports. During the 2019 season at North Forney High School, Allen totaled 281 receiving yards and five touchdowns on 16 receptions.
Several teams at the FBS level recruited Allen, receiving 16 offers on the recruiting front. He picked Michigan State over Arizona, Boise State, Missouri, Army, Navy and many other programs.
Per 247Sports’ Composite rankings, Allen is the No. 153 player out of Texas and is the No. 51 tight end in this year’s class. He has been given a three-star ranking.
With Allen’s commitment, Michigan State has jumped up to No. 24 in the national recruiting rankings, but still sits at No. 9 in the B1G.
