Allen picks Georgia over Clemson

Shrine Bowl TE Dwayne Allen (6-4, 240) of Fayetteville, N.C., committed to Georgia over Clemson today during a news conference at his school.

Allen long had been a Georgia commitment, but Clemson had come on so strongly that Tiger observers felt confident he would pick the Orange and White. Allen said after talking to his mother, he couldn't discard all that red and black.

"It was Clemson," he said, "but we talked it over and I was reminded of what it was that led me to commit to Georgia in the first place."

Allen also considered Florida State and North Carolina.
