Christopher Allen signed to Priority Sports and Entertainment last week.

After inking a deal with the agency, he decided to make his NFL Draft move official. Allen is declaring for April’s venue, despite playing in one game for Alabama in 2021. He open the season versus Miami, but a foot injury forced him to miss 14 games.

Allen turned in a successful campaign in 2020 with 41 tackles, 13 tackles for loss, six sacks, five quarterback hurries, and two forced fumbles. He assisted the Crimson Tide to an undefeated national championship year. As a native of Baton Rouge, La., Allen arrived in Alabama’s 2017 signing class as a four-star. He won two College Football Playoff national titles (2017, 2020) and three SEC Championships (2018, 2020, 2021). Crimson Tide fans wish the best for Allen as he pursues a pro career.

He joins Evan Neal, Phidarian Mathis, Chris Owens, Brian Robinson Jr., John Metchie, Jameson Williams, Slade Bolden, Josh Jobe, and Jalyn Armour-Davis as the tenth player to declare for the draft.
