UNC Football Recruiting: Tar Heels the Favorite to Land Josh Allen


Class of 2014 offensive guard Josh Allen recently made a visit from his hometown; Jacksonville, Florida; up to Chapel Hill. You can say he walked away impressed and very excited about the Tar Heels football program.

On Wednesday, Allen told 247sports.com that UNC is his top school and his favorite.

The 6’3″, 285 pound three-star guard has received offers from ten schools including the North Carolina Tar Heels. Also pitching offers are: Florida Atlantic, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Missouri, UCF, Vanderbilt, and Western Michigan.

Behind the Tar Heels, his two other favorites are Florida State and Georgia. However, after his recent visit, the Tar Heels have made it tough for anyone to “steal” this talented guard. He even said that he was close to committing to Coach Larry Fedora and the Tar Heels over the weekend. His mom felt he needed to give it more time and visit a few other schools first.

Allen has no other schedule visits at the time being after his trip to FSU later this month, but did received his latest offer from Vanderbilt on Monday. He is also expecting several offers form other big schools to start coming in. Hopefully, Fedora and staff left a big enough impression to secure Allen and these new offers won’t affect his decision away from Chapel Hill.
