Former LSU DE Jordan Allen visits TCU

TCU could be close to adding some serious depth along the defensive line, as  JC Shurburtt of 247Sports.com reported that former LSU Tiger defensive end Jordan Allen was on campus Monday visiting with coaches. Allen, who stands at 6-foot-6 and 255 pounds, has been cleared to transfer anywhere outside of the SEC by LSU. He's also restricted from transferring to any non-SEC school on LSU's schedule (i.e. Wisconsin, Sam Houston State, Louisiana-Monroe and New Mexico State).

Allen, a graduate of West Monroe High School in West Monroe, Louisiana, has one year of eligibility and is eligible immediately because he is a graduate transfer, according to nbcsports.com. If he joined the Frogs, he'd be reunited with former high school teammates James McFarland and Chucky Hunter.

Allen's time at LSU was riddled with injuries, including a knee injury that kept him out for the majority of the 2012 season. In 2013 he started three games before losing his starting job to Danielle Hunter. He played a significant amount of time throughout the season though, recording 16 tackles and two sacks.

This would be a solid addition to a defensive line that has shaky depth at best, and it could allow someone to slide from end to tackle full time to relieve the lack of depth.
