HOW ACQUIRED: Signed as a Homegrown Player on December 31, 2013.
A native of Rochester, New York, who played at the Real Salt Lake-Arizona Academy, the versatile Allen has struggled a bit with injuries during his time in the league, but has played well when healthy. The jack-of-all trades can play outside back, forward or as a central midfielder, but is probably at his best when playing wide midfield.
INTERNATIONAL: A regular call-up to US youth national teams, Allen was a part of the US squad that made a run to the quarterfinals at the 2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup.
COLLEGE: Spent one season at the University of Virginia, starting all 24 of the Cavaliers’ matches in 2013 and helping the team to the NCAA College Cup semifinals.
