After the release of last week's first spring depth chart, Allen is listed number two. Not too shabby for someone who's only been in the program for a few months?

In last Saturday's second scrimmage, he connected on a 66-yard strike to Tanner Gentry for one of the Pokes' highlighted scoring plays.
