Colorado Buffaloes defensive end Cordary Allen has decided to leave the program confirmed by Jon Embree in a report to Buffzone. The sophomore from Alabama came to CU as a running back and switched positions twice, first to tight end, during his tenure.
No reason has been given for leaving, but one would assume that he will return closer to home. Allen becomes the eighth member of Hawkins 2010 recruiting class to leave the Buffs, and further illuminates the depth issues that Jon Embree is going to have to overcome.
Allen, a member of the 2010 recruiting class -- the final class of former coach Dan Hawkins' tenure -- never quite found a spot to fit into in the CU program. He came to Boulder from Phenix City, Ala., where he was a standout at Central High School. He chose CU late in the recruiting process over offers from schools such as Western Kentucky, Tulsa and Army.
