Wake Forest Football Recruiting: Wake Makes Michael Allen's Top 8

Wake Forest is in the mix for an excellent prospect.

Student Sports

The Wake Forest football program is still in the mix for an elite recruit in the 2017 class. Mike Allen, a 4-star defensive end out of Georgia, recently tweeted out his top 8 college choices, and Wake Forest made the cut. Allen is 6'4", 240 pounds, and is a terror on the defensive line. Last season, he racked up 15 tackles for loss, including 8 sacks, and also returned an interception for a touchdown.

Mike Allen has scholarship offers from more than 20 other Power 5 programs, including some of the best programs in the country. Wake Forest offered him last summer, and have stayed in the recruiting race as a result of the relationship building that Dave Cohen has done. There's certainly still plenty of work to be done, but a commitment from Michael Allen would be a game changer on the defensive line.
