"My coach [Kevin Driscoll] keeps me updated on anything related to recruiting," Van Allen said. "He said UConn is pretty interested in me. Boston College as well.
"Syracuse, UCLA, Nebraska, Vanderbilt and Stanford are the other schools I've heard from. I'm kind of indecisive right now about where I'd like to go and what I'd like to study. It's a little early."
Van Allen, one of at least a handful of Division I recruits on the Avon Old Farms roster, said he's been told he could play either wide receiver or safety at the college level. He's said he has no preference, but added that wide receiver is his best position at this point in his career.
"I have pretty good speed and my height helps me go get the ball," he said. "The position doesn't matter to me. I feel I can play on both sides of the ball."
Van Allen is planning to attend a Boston College game this fall, and is trying to fit another trip to Connecticut into his schedule.
"I feel confident that I'll be getting some offers soon, because I'm confident I can play at the Division I level," Van Allen said.
