High School: IMG Academy, Bradenton, Fla.

It was IMG's post-grad team that featured Jacob Nix and, briefly, Brady Aiken that made most of the headlines this spring, but the academy's high school team had several prospects of its own. Allen, a native of Asheville, N.C., who transferred to IMG before his junior year, is the best of the bunch. He has gotten stronger since last summer and has seen his velocity tick up as a result, going from throwing his fastball in the mid to upper 80s to sitting in the low 90s with the pitch. He also tightened his breaking ball and is throwing it with more power, making it look more like a slider. He shows some feel for a changeup and also throws a bigger breaking curveball, giving him a full arsenal. Allen works around the zone and has a good understanding of his craft. He is committed to South Carolina.
