05/22/17- Florida International recruit. Currently ranked No. 14 in the Florida 2017 Class, No. 45 Overall. Currently stands at 6-foot-1, 180 pounds with an athletic build.  He has plus command and is a plus competitor. Allen has a simple delivery that he repeats and stays under control. Pounds the strike zone with a 90-93 mph fastball that he consistently locates down in the zone and to both sides of the plate. Both his curveball at 72-75 mph and changeup at 80-81 mph project as slightly above average pitches. 

03/21/17 - Commanding an 88-90 mph fastball that touched 91 as well as a feel for both the 73-75 mph slider and 78-81 mph changeup, he would work five scoreless innings. Allen would allow no runs on three hits and striking out ten. Allen is known for his plus command for three pitches and that showed up again today.

9/2016 - Made USA 18U National Team.

7/25/16- Committed to Florida International University.

5/10/16- Alabama State commit who stands at 5-foot-11, 170 pounds with a lean, athletic, loose, young, and projectable body. He is ranked 4th in Florida and 11th overall. He has a simple delivery that he repeats and he stays under control. He stays in line and he has a clean high ¾ to 3/4 arm action. He pounds with the zone at 87-89 mph and touches 90 mph fairly often. His curveball is advanced for his age as it breaks two planes and has good depth at 71-73 mph. He has pretty good feel for his backdoor curveball to righties. His changeup is also advanced as he keeps the same arm speed as his fastball and he keeps it down in the zone at 77-78 mph. Allen is one of the more polished pitchers in the state and will continue to improve with strength and maturity.

3/29/16 - Alabama St. recruit. 5-foot-11, 170 pound lefty with a lean loose athletic projectable body on a medium sized frame. A bit like Tom Glavine. Not imposing in physical stature, but is a winner. Loose easy working arm at a ¾ arm slot. Shoulders wrap at top of delivery and lands slightly across the body. Fast ball has deception and late life at 85-91 mph. creates good angle. Gets hitters to chase fast ball up in zone. Curve ball is a downer with depth at 71-74 mph. An above average pitch to both sides of the plate. Looks like a fast ball out of his hand. Change up is 78-80 mph with life and deception. Is solid average now but flashes plus. Hitters don’t take good swings off of this kid. He misses barrels. Knows how to pitch. Could be a good 2017 draft.

3/22/16- Allen has been dominating everyone he has faced for the past year and has grown a couple of inches and added some weight. He has gained 4-5 mph on his fastball from a year ago and his plus off speed pitches have only gotten better with added velocity. He has an easy delivery and clean and loose arm action. His velocity should continue to rise as he matures and gets stronger. About half way through the 2016 season, Allen has thrown 27 innings and has given up zero runs. He has a 54:2 strikeout-to-walk ratio and his record is 5-0.

1/15/16- loose, clean delivery and arm with control and feel for all three pitches. 87-89 mph FB, plus 72 mph CB, plus 76 mph CHG.

5/12/15 - Lean athletic loose projectable body on a medium sized frame. Smooth fluid delivery with a loose easy working arm at a high 3/4 slot. Repeats delivery and pounds the strike zone with 3 pitches. Locates fast ball at 81-84 mph, and commands the curve ball which is a tight downer with some depth. Can bury it down and in to right handed hitters and also can back door it. Throws it in any count. Change up has late life with good arm speed and sets it up well. Has tremendous pitchability and composure for a young kid. Pitches back ward and keeps hitters off balance. 2 hit Olympia in the regional final.

2020 DRAFT:Allen put together a dominant sophomore spring for FIU in 2019, striking out 120 in 84 innings of work while averaging six innings per start and posting a 3.11 ERA/1.14 WHIP/.210 BAA. The lefty is an impressive strike thrower and demonstrated that talent in his three starts and 15 innings of work last summer in the Cape League, walking just three while striking out 24. It was more of the same in the shortened 2020 spring campaign: Allen finished 2-1, 2.46 with a sparkling 41-6 K-BB mark in 25.2 innings, holding batters to a .183 clip. Listed at 6-foot-1, 200 pounds, Allen is a good athlete and works effectively in the low-90s with his fastball. He is comfortable working the pitch to both sides of the plate and the pitch plays up when he busts hitters on the inner half. His fastball has near average major league spin rate around 2200 rpm. Allen also boasts an average slurve in the 79-82 mph range with hard, horizontal bite at times. He can also finish hitters with a low-80s split/changeup that induces a near 47% chase rate. Allen's chance for three average or better offerings and plus command give him a fairly high floor as a potential back-end rotation arm, with a chance to reach mid-rotation production at maturity.

8/20/19: Listed at 6-foot-1, 200 pounds, Allen works effectively in the low 90s with his fastball and is comfortable working the pitch to both sides of the plate. He also boasts an above-average curveball in the 78-80 mph range with hard bite and a short low-80s slider – each of which are potential weapons, particularly when ahead in the count. Allen will also show a low-80s changeup with soft fade that looks like a potential average offering at maturity. Allen is an impressive strike thrower and demonstrated that talent in his three starts and 15 innings of work this summer, walking just three while striking out 24. His chance for four average or better offerings and above-average command give him a fairly high floor as a potential back-end arm and there’s a chance he reaches mid-rotation production at maturity. He projects as an early Day Two arm at present and could continue to increase his stock with a good showing once back on campus. (Faleris)

7/1/19:A two-way talent, Allenmade it look easyduring his lone pitching appearance and is an early round prospect on the bump. As a position player his highlight was a great throw to the plate from left field to cut down the potential winning run to end the second scrimmage of the Trials. Offensively, he showed a short stroke with good balance, but little performance to show for it (1-for-9). He pulled off the ball, forcing most of his contact on the ground to the left side, or soft contact the opposite way. He was slow out of the box on a 5-4-3 double play, running a 4.50 down the line from the right side. (Seifert)

6/30/19:Poised and confident, the 6-foot, 185 pound lefty sliced through the Blue squad working quickly and efficiently with three innings of one-hit baseball. During his 36 pitch outing, he ran his fastball up to 93 mph while pitching inside very effectively to RHHs with the pitch. Also showed an above average, hard curveball at 78-80 mph which generated swing/miss vs LHHs and manipulated his breaker into a short, sharp slider at 83 mph for finishing batters. To complete his four-pitch arsenal, Allen mixed in a fading changeup at 83-84 mph, used mostly against RHHs. Overall, Allen is a strike thrower who projects to the back end of a ML rotation, yet may pitch himself into a No. 3 role during his best years. A comparable is Randy Wolf, a former 2nd round pick of the Phillies in 1997, who did just that during a 133 win, 14-year ML career. (Seifert)
