Derrik Allen is one of the top defensive backs for the class of 2018 and an impressive talent to watch. He tackles at an elite level, but his coverage skills and intelligence on the field is what separates himself from the rest of the pack. He sees the field so well, and gets elite breaks on the play that you only see at a much higher level of play. He flips his hips quickly, does a great job of sinking them before tackling too. Allen was one of the first top recruits to sign up for Recruit Georgia back in May 2015 – over that time he has added almost 25 pounds of muscle and highest the highest bench press of any defensive back in our database.
