A polished strike thrower going back to his prep days, Allen posted a stunning 126-to-9 strikeout-to-walk ratio as a senior at University High in Orange City, Fla. At the time, his fastball topped out at 93 mph and he mixed and matched effectively enough to overpower the competition. His profile is much the same after three seasons with Florida International. Even without an overpowering fastball, Allen has had uninterrupted success as a starter, logging a career 3.33 ERA and 246 strikeouts to 47 walks in 183.2 innings. Allen can run his fastball into the 93-94 mph range, but he usually pitches at 90-91. The pitch plays above its below-average velocity thanks to his deception and command. Allen has turned what was a fringe-average changeup into a legitimate plus offering and also has an average curveball. Despite no truly overpowering offerings, Allen is confident in his stuff and pitches fearlessly inside against any hitter. In his abbreviated junior season, He racked up double-digit strikeouts in three of his first four starts in 2020, finishing with 41 strikeouts and just six walks in 25.2 innings. Allen also had a strong summer in the Cape Cod League, where he struck out 24 batters and walked three in 15 innings. In addition to his pitching accomplishments, Allen has been a two-way player for FIU every season and is a career .297/.362/.410 hitter while playing first base. His pro future is on the mound, and he should be a safe second-round pick.
