OLSM's Dionte Allen transferring from Florida State

Once one of the nation's most highly coveted cornerbacks in the prep ranks in his senior year at Orchard Lake St. Mary's, Dionte Allen has decided to transfer from Florida State, the school announced Monday, after granting his release.

The No. 3 player in Michigan in 2007, and 40th-best overall according to, Allen struggled to get on the field with the Seminoles, then struggled to stay there when he finally did. After a redshirt year, Allen played in just five games as a freshman, then split time at corner last season, starting once. His redshirt sophomore season was curtailed by a broken thumb, which required surgery and cost him four games.

Allen was pushed by freshman sensation Greg Reid, the Seminoles' nickel back and primary return man, and may have seen the handwriting on the wall, with Florida State adding three more highly-touted DBs — including five-star stud Lamarcus Joyner — in the 2010 recruiting class.
