His combine numbers earlier in the year look pretty bad, maybe just a bad day? Seeing him play live Clean can he run with receivers on the deeper routes? Only ask bc didn’t see much of it in his short highlight tape.

His shuttle was above average

Vertical and 40 weren’t impressive, but that was almost a year ago.

And it was right after their season concluded, so there wouldn’t have been much time to prepare.

re: Lafayette Christian Academy 2022 CB Jordan Allen
Those combine style drills require coaching and lots of practice, not to mention he was a sophomore then. If he's never ran track or prepared for those events, his times should improve greatly with maturity, reps, and properly coached technique. He doesn't look like a 4.9 athlete on film, very explosive out of breaks...

And if it’s between a really good oos kid and a really good in-state kid, you have to take the in-state guy. CR has to have his 6’2” 170lb kid, but sometimes it’s the size of the dog that’s in the kid. Would CR have offered TM7? I say probably not.

re: Lafayette Christian Academy 2022 CB Jordan Allen
I know exactly what you mean about Raymond obviously preferring CBs with specific measurements (6’2”, 170-180 lbs. like you mentioned).

And I get it that it’s advantageous for corners to be longer, lankier athletes. But dam, it’s also good to have some diversity amongst the athletes in our defensive backfield. Hell, some 6’0” DBs are better coverage defenders than 6’2”-6’3” guys w/ 78” wingspans. Being able to play coverage is a skill and if you got ‘it’ then you got ‘it’, regardless of measurable’s.

And in regard to J. Allen specifically, his nickname is “Lockdown” for Christ’s sake. Lastly, if the staff didn’t like is build/measurables for corner, his height & weight are perfect for safety. I would love to have Jordan as a free safety or at nickel

What's the deal with him committing so early? Just making sure he has a spot?

Raymond has a certain type of CB he likes and we dont have any CBs listed under 6'1 on the roster. If anything they probably see Allen as a nickel/safety and maybe Allen doesnt see himself that way. I dont think the door is closed on Allen either way if he does commit next week or not.

Yeah I saw where him and Welch both ran in the 4.5’s on Twitter. Electric times that’s moving for high school juniors, so speed doesn’t seem to be an issue. He looks like a dude, hope he earns an offer soon.
