HS football: Ben Davis safety Antonio Allen picks IU (indystar)

Ben Davis High School senior free safety Antonio Allen made sure his family
will be able to see him play often in college. Allen, who rescinded his
commitment  to Mississippi last week, made an oral commitment to Indiana
University on Thursday. “The more he started thinking about playing at Ole
Miss and playing in Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi, he came to the
realization that his mother and dad would never get to see him play,” Ben
Davis coach Mike Kirschner said. “There’s no way they could afford to travel
(every week) and do all that stuff.” Kirschner said several schools that were
recruiting Allen before contacted him again. Allen had offers from  IU,
Purdue, Michigan State, Iowa, Cincinnati, Kentucky, Louisville and Minnesota
before he picked Ole Miss in April. “He definitely wanted to have something
decided before we got deep into the season,” Kirschner said. “He doesn’t want
it bothering him. He can concentrate on his academics. His core GPA is really
good. He just has to finish his courses.”
