Stan Olson charlotteobserver.com on Keenan Allen from Northern Guilford:

Tide, Nittany Lions salivating at Keenan Allen’s opening show

When official stats aren’t easily available, sometimes an eyewitness account works even better.

On Aug. 21, Northern Guilford opened its season with a 43-36 victory over Western Guilford, and Nighthawks WR/S Keenan Allen showed why he is one of the most sought-after recruits in the country.

An Alabama fan watched the game and focused on Allen, later posting his observations on a Crimson Tide message board. An abbreviated version follows:

“I had the pleasure of watching Keenan Allen play in person Friday night.

Here is what Keenan accomplished:
*3 TD Receptions (21yd, 65yd, 7yd)
