DT, Noah Allen declares Army as his sole leader

"I had a blast," uttered Allen earlier in his December conversation with GBK. "It was real fun and my dad and my good friend also had fun. I think if it wasn't for that fumble at the end of the game, it would have gone Army's way."

But as significant and impressive as his time was at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia (Pa.) where he took in the Army-Navy 113th annual classic, the 6-foot-2, 250 pound prospect out of Alpharetta (Ga.) Milton High School also had encouraging words regarding the manner in which the Black Knights have handled his recruiting.

"I haven't committed, but I am honestly thinking about committing to Army," said the very forthright Allen. "I'm scheduled for the 14th (January) for my official visit to Army. But here's a possibility that I could commit to Army even before my official visit. It's really the structure about West Point and I definitely need structure at the college level and I think it's a great football program."

"But also Coach Holmes (Clarence) has really explained things to me and showed his interest in me, unlike a lot of other coaches where he has sat down and talk to me for like an hour and a half," adds Allen. "Where the other schools just kind of call for five minutes, check in and say alright I'll see you later. I think Army is a better fit for me and school wise, if I can get out there, serve and then I'm done ... I'm pretty much set for life."

Allen also pointed out that his parents are also on board with his heavy lean toward Army. "They think that West Point would be the best fit for me and they're actually pretty proud of me once they heard that they offered me," Allen shared. "They think it's a really prestigious college and it is."
