That's Allen's recruiting page as a three-star dual-threat JUCO quarterback from Reedley College in 2015. This is his only recruiting page on 247Sports. He does not have a 2014 high school recruiting page.

Allen was a multi-sport star Firebaugh High School in Firebaugh, Calif., a small town 40 miles northwest of Fresno. He was a 6-foot-3, 180-pound quarterback who led the basketball team in scoring and had a 90-mph fastball. He had zero FBS or FCS scholarship offers (one walk-on offer from San Diego State) and enrolled at Reedley, a community college on the other side of Fresno.
Four years later, Allen is a candidate for the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft and one of several former unranked recruits that could be selected in the first round.
Leighton Vander Esch was an unranked prospect in the 2014 class when he accepted a walk-on opportunity at Boise State. Dallas Goedert was a walk-on at South Dakota State in 2013, the same year Will Hernandez accepted his lone FBS offer from UTEP.
Only Allen is guaranteed to be chosen in the first round but with Vander Esch, Goedert and Hernandez, former unranked recruits could account for one-eighth of 2018 first-round picks.
