He was going to choose a purple, and he chose a purple close to home.
John Curtis offensive tackle Willie Allen, a four star prospect, chose LSU over TCU. Allen made his verbal commitment Thursday morning at the school.
Allen started every game his last 3 years. He was a 2015 MaxPreps preseason All American, and played in the Under Armour Game earlier this month in Orlando.
Allen said he would like to play as a true freshman for head coach Les Miles and the Tigers.
