One recruit to visit Tennessee this weekend for the Vols’ Orange Carpet Day event and not commit to the Volunteers latest recruiting class was Buford, Ga., prospect Michael Allen. Although Allen wasn’t ready to publicly pledged his commitment to one school, he did announce some news with the release of his latest Top 8 list.

Of the schools fortunate enough to make the list, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee and South Carolina were the schools listed from the SEC:

The 6-foot-4, 239-pound Allen is currently rated as a three-star prospect, the No. 21 weak-side defensive end in the nation and the No. 37 overall prospect from Georgia. Other schools that have offered Allen include Arkansas, Florida, Missouri, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Florida State, Miami and Notre Dame.

Last season Allen was the teammate of current Auburn signee and five-star defensive lineman recruit Derrick Brown.
