While most people who keep up with recruiting are well-versed on talented athlete Eddie Williams (Panama City, Fla./Arnold), they might not be aware that the Alabama commit and Under Armour All-American has two teammates who are also being heavily courted by major programs.

Running back Andre Allen, 5-foot-9 and 180 pounds, is coming off of a 2,000-yard season for Arnold.

"One thing that a lot of people don't know about Andre is that he started as a freshman down in the Miami area," said Arnold assistant coach Tyrone Boulware. "He's a little bit undersized some may say but I played running back at Southern Mississippi and he definitely has what it takes to play big-time football."
