Staying closer to home for this one.

Alfonzo Allen Jr. is a 6’0 175 pound safety from Hallandale, FL.

The Class of 2022 prospect attends Hallandale High School and has a 91 rating (4*) from 247 Sports. They consider him the 128th best player in America (9th best safety and 16th best player in Florida).

When we brought up this ranking, AA said he felt “disrespected” because he was the No. 2 safety in their previous ranking, but he added that it was “alright,” and he’d “show them what’s right!!”

Allen has offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Georgia Tech, LSU, Miami (FL), North Carolina, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Penn State, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Virginia Tech, and many more.

He was re-offered by the new Florida State staff in late March:

Allen has spoken with Coach Norvell, Coach Fuller, and Coach Clinton McMillan (asst. DL) one-on-one, and described them as “great people with lots of energy.”

He said the offer was a blessing, and the staff likes the way he plays and really wants him to visit. He plans to oblige once the Dead Period is over, as he says the coaches are “ready to change FSU.”

Allen describes himself as a hybrid safety who wears No. 21 because of Sean Taylor:

He also looks up to Jamal Adams, Brian Dawkins, Derwin James, and Tyrann Mathieu.

Oh, and, surprise, surprise: the all-black FSU uniforms are his favorite combination.

We discusse

Allen says he grew up a fan of two schools: Florida State and Ohio State, and he chose those because of their coaches, how the programs were run, and the defensive backs from said schools.

It’s still early in his recruiting process with no schools currently standing out. He plans to make a decision during his senior year and plans to study business management.
