One Spartan listed in 247Sports’ ‘100 true freshmen who will impact 2021 college football season’

True freshman tight end Kameron Allen is expected to make an instant impact for Michigan State in 2021, according to 247Sports.

Last week, Chris Hummer of 247Sports put together a list of the top 100 true freshmen that’ll impact the 2021 college football season, and Allen cracked the list. Here’s what Hummer had to say about Allen:

The Spartan tight room could use an upgrade, particularly from a pass-catching perspective, after nobody from the group posted better than a 65.7 receiving grade last year, per PFF College. The group was also egregious in pass protection, but that’s a topic for another time. Allen was a really productive receiver in high school, catching 44 passes for 808 yards and eight touchdowns as a senior. He’s on the thinner side at 6-foot-5, 220-pound but brings a playmaking element to the position the Spartans have lacked. Allen was well received this spring. He was even called “the leader” of the tight end room.

Allen — who is from Forney, Texas — was a three-star prospect and ranked as the No. 67 tight end in the 2021 class by 247Sports.

A lot of what Hummer said about Michigan State and Allen makes sense, and definitely could be something to keep an eye on this fall. More than anything, Allen should be a solid prospect for the Spartans in years to come should he not have the instant impact Hummer is forecasting this season.
