Allen Talks Cajun's Offer
"Coach Hudson told me that the UL had offered," Allen stated. I had a good feeling after their camp that I could get an offer from them after I ran 4.38, but it feels great to pick up my first D1 offer. I'm really excited about it and look forward to talking to the coaches during the season. They told me after the camp that they really liked my performance and would look at the video that we gave them. Coach Hudspeth said that he really liked me and they would stay on me during my senior season, so I was happy they offered me now."
Allen has put in a number of quality performances this summer, including at the local NUC Combine at St. Thomas More High.
"I went there to make to the next level, the NUC Elite 100 in Dallas," La Marcus said. "It was my first opportunity to get out there and compete against some the other athletes in the area after spring football. After my performance at the local NUC Combine, it felt great to make to the Elite 100 Combine in Dallas and show people what I was capable of doing against top talent."
La Marcus Allen's next stop will be the NUC Top Prospect Camp held at Oklahoma University.
"I'm really excited about going to the Top 15 Camp in Oklahoma," Allen stated. "I will have the opportunity to work against the top athletes at my position in the country and some of the best on the other side of the ball. It gives you the chance to compare yourself against the best from the NUC Combines."
Allen finished the 2010 season with over 350 yards receiving and a number schools visited New Iberia Senior High the spring.
"Nebraska, Texas A&M, LSU, UL, McNeese State, Tulane, Grambling, Southern and a few others came by school during the spring," La Marcus said. "I separated my shoulder during spring, so they really didn't get to see me play much football. Hopefully my performances at the NUC Combines and at ULL will open a few eyes this summer."
La Marcus Allen scored a 17 on his first ACT test and plans to take it again this fall.
