Allen down to five
From 19 offers down to five possibilities in a flash.
No. 1-ranked pro-style quarterback Kyle Allen took a knife to his list of potential suitors on Tuesday afternoon. Still standing when all was said and done were Oklahoma State, Ohio State, Notre Dame, UCLA and Texas A&M.
Following his announcement, which was made via Twitter, Allen spoke with Rivals.com and outlined his thought process. The four-star prospect also touched on a few other items of interest.
Q: First of all, congrats on the final five. The only one I didn't guess was Oklahoma State, so let's start there. Why did the Cowboys make the cut?
Q: You have a visit to Notre Dame set up for the near future, but you haven't been there yet. What was it that put Notre Dame in the group?
Q: So what put A&M in there? I know your dad loved it down there. He and I have talked extensively about your visits to A&M and Ohio State.
Q: This question is a little tougher. Be honest with me here. Everybody thinks UCLA is your leader. Obviously, everyone knew they would be on this list. Do they hold some sort of edge? Is that accurate to say?
Q: You've been close with the staff over at UCLA for a long time, though. Was it the relationships that put them on the final list or something else?
Q: Did you just call coaches at the five schools that made it or did you break the bad news to the coaching staffs that you cut?
Q: I'm sure some of them might have actually appreciated it to some extent so it could free them to recruit other quarterbacks. Did you hear any of that?
Q: Anything else you want to add? If you want to include anything at all, anything I haven't asked you about, here's your chance.
Q: Are you ready for the Rivals Five-Star Challenge
Q: Congrats on narrowing everything down. Maybe it won't be as hectic for you anymore.
Q: Hey, I forgot to ask you about Ohio State. What put them on the list?
