I'm assuming this is Jack Allen's brother?

I think he also had a brother that wrestled at UM. His dad played for a Big Ten school (Illinois, maybe?) and I think he had another brother or maybe an uncle that wrestled at yet another Big Ten school. Kid has connections to more than just MSU but I love the early work MSU has put in here. Kid is a freaking stud. Short, so that may keep him undervalued nationally (that's more than fine by me).

For the love of god, please follow your brother to MSU. We absolutely want you in green and white. Put the good word in with the other guys at core 6. This is going to be coach D's best class yet. Sign on with Drake and let's get it rolling.
He also already doesn't trust scUM. Things sure look bright for us.
I am not a doctor
Starts out as a 89 3 star, on the fringe of being a 4star.
Is he an MSU lock? I mean, I know most assume he will end up green, but should we be worried about any other program stealing him away?
Iowa/Wisconsin are always dangerous when you're talking OL. They have solid track records of development and putting OL into the NFL.
Iowa, Michigan State, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Illinois are his top 5. He's said he doesn't really have favorites right now
I'm pretty sure after he sees a bunch of games this year we'll be his favorite.
Oh yeah, his brother is going to probably start at LG too.

His brother will be at LG, Chris Mcdonald is the RG.
There's another family connection with Wisconsin too, I believe. I think grandparents went or played there.
Not that worried when he's saying things like this:
“Michigan State just has a family atmosphere,” Allen said. “Every time I visit there they just make me feel welcomed. Since the first time I visited [Notre Dame game, 2010] you could tell that a lot of special things are happening. I’ve gotten to know a lot of the other players on the team like my brother’s roommates and it’s just like a family there. I already feel like I’m part of it.”
24/7 Composite rating of 4 stars, FWIW
Yeah, that's the same quote that me made smile.
The composite rankings/star values don't really mean anything right now because 247 is the only recruiting service that has rankings out. Notice there is only one red box filled in out of the four.
This is the only time I have seen the 247 ranking not match the composite rankings. Not too sure what that means.
Either way he has a pretty solid offer list very early on.
I also believe Wisconsin has offered him as a DT, not an OLine position.
Not being smart ass, serious question, but how the hell does that work? He's only a three star on 247, but they do a composite of just their rankings and he's a four star? More of a composite rating question because I don't doubt your comment that he's not rated anywhere else.
The composite rating is based on the average number of players at each "star level" among different services. Apparently 247 has named fewer four-stars so far than their "national average" number.
Yeah I was kinda wondering same. I also suspected the "fewer 4-star prospects on 24/7" theory as well. Hence the FWIW.
