...Anthony Allen, running back, Georgia Tech." Allen is a 6'1", 228 pound running back that would be an excellent complement to current starter, Ray Rice. With the possibility that both RB Willis McGahee and FB LeRon McClain leaving the team due to free agency, Allen provides insurance and the option for goal line carries as he is much bigger than Rice, whose elusiveness is best served in the open field.

Allen was named to the All-ACC first-team and finished second in the ACC, averaging just over 100 yards a game in 2010, including over 160 yards in each of the final two games. He finished the 2010 season with 1,316 yards on 240 carries with seven TD's. He added 88 more yards on 3 receptions and another score. 

Allen transferred from Louisville for his final two years at Georgia Tech, finishing his college career with over 3,000 yards rushing.
