Beau Allen Schedules Official Visit to Kentucky


Beau Allen’s recruitment is nearing a conclusion.

Shortly after watching Eddie Gran’s offense score 74 points in the 2019 Blue/White Game, the four-star quarterback told Rivals’ Justin Rowland he’ll be making his final decision in “around one month.” Before the commitment, Allen will be taking a few official visits.

This weekend Allen will travel across the country to Pullman, Washington to officially visit Washington State. After his weekend with Mike Leach, Allen will officially visit UK. The Lexington Catholic quarterback also plans to take an official to West Virginia, the new home of Neal Brown. The other players in Allen’s recruitment are Michigan State, Penn State and Duke.

Considered the No. 15 pocket-passer in America by Rivals, Kentucky’s offense does not have the same reputation as Mike Leach or Neal Brown’s air raids. Mark Stoops does have the hometown advantage and Allen’s former head coach, Mark Perry, on staff.

Kentucky began recruiting Allen as a freshman. If the Cats finish strong, Stoops could have an early commitment from a game-changer.

    I would understand him wanting to go to a pass-happy offensive school such Washington State or West Virginia, but if he is a gamer then he will come here. Neither of those schools have good defenses, heck there isn’t a good defense in either entire school’s conference! If he wants to play on the biggest stage in the country AGAINST the best defenses then he should sign with us. No better way to get better than to play against the best.

    He’s listed as a pocket passer. We’ve gone the route of dual threat. Don’t see the fit.

      Gran had primarily pocket passers before he came to UK. I would say the dual threat trend has been more happenstance than intentional strategy. SJ wasn’t even supposed to play, only because Barker got hurt.

    A lot of bad and late throws on that tape. But he’s young. Could be a good player.
