2014 Miami Football Recruiting: DT Ikeem Allen Flips From Toledo to Miami

Chuck Martin shows more recruiting savvy by flipping a commit from Toledo to Miami. - Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Shortly before National Signing Day, a defensive tackle from Charlotte switched his commitment from the Rockets to the RedHawks.

We here at Hustle Belt previously reported that Ikeem Allen, a two-star defensive tackle from Mallard Creek High School in Charlotte, North Carolina, flipped his verbal from Ball State to Toledo, where he joined his teammate Cam Mattison, who enrolled early. But Allen didn't stick at Toledo. Like 18-year-olds are wont to do sometimes, he was a bit indecisive. As first reported by Rivals, Allen kept taking visits after committing, and Toledo coach Matt Campbell didn't like that. So Toledo pulled its offer.

The message board scuttlebutt is that Toledo specifically didn't like Allen visiting Miami. But things worked out for Allen, who verbaled to the RedHawks after that no-no visit:

In addition to offers from the "whole MAC," Allen also had offers from Georgia State and a number of FCS schools. He helped lead Mallard Creek to the class 4A state title last season, where he was named Defensive MVP of the game and later to the All-State team. He recorded 89 tackles, 41 tackles for a loss, 13 sacks, five forced fumbles, and an interception in 2013.
