For some, making their college decision is the most arduous they’ll ever have to make.
For DJ Allen, it came way more naturally.
Allen, a native of small East Texas town Gladewater, grew up rooting on the Horned Frogs. Malcolm Kelly recruited the in-state pass-catcher harder than any other coach, so as his senior season crept closer and closer, it was finally time to lock in a decision.
While he wrestled with in, Allen noted that TCU checked all the main boxes.
“It was definitely a very hard decision to make,” Allen told Rivals. “I wanted to go to TCU because it was my dream school. Coach Kelly and I have a good connection. All of the visits I took, everywhere, everything was amazing. TCU just did everything well. It came down to going to the school I always wanted to go to.”
The 6-foot, 190-pounder from East Texas is the nation’s No. 26-ranked wide receiver and a top-35 prospect from the Lone Star State. He sits No. 175 overall in the country.
The Horned Frogs boast a top-100 class and add Allen, a four-star pass-catcher, to the fold along with fellow Texas four-star defensive end Joseph Adedire and Tennessee defensive back D’arco Perkins-McAllister.
