Coach Collins and his staff have landed yet another transfer. Derrick Allen a safety from Notre Dame is a big time get for Collins. Allen is from Marietta, Georgia and went to Lassiter High School. He was a four star safety coming out of high school. Part of the reason for Allen transferring is that he knew of how well Collins has developed DB’s and gotten them to the NFL. Allen is 6’1 204 pounds and definitely has the potential to be playing in the NFL. With the addition of Allen, the Jackets secondary has the potential to be very good in the upcoming years.
Allen will have to sit out this season, but will have three years of eligibility left. For more updates on things all Georgia Tech follow @wreckhavocatl on twitter.
