Another member of Hallandale’s loaded secondary is headed to the desert.

Chargers 2022 safety Alfonzo Allen committed to Arizona State on Saturday afternoon, announcing his decision on Instagram. He joined his teammate, Jaylin Marshall, in committing to the Sun Devils.

Allen is one of the top local prospects in South Florida. He is rated a four-star prospect in 247Sports’ composite ranking, and he is listed as the No. 14 safety and No. 243 player in the class. He was an All-County honorable mention as a junior.

Allen chose Arizona State over offers from Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Miami and more.

Allen is the third member of Hallandale’s deep secondary to commit to a school. Jaylin Marshall committed to Arizona State, and Anthony Rose committed to South Carolina. Edric Weldon, a four-star prospect, remains uncommitted.

Allen and Marshall are taking a new path for South Florida athletes. No Palm Beach, Broward or Miami-Dade county player has signed with Arizona State since at least 2001, according to 247Sports’ database, which has the Sun Devils’ complete signing classes going back to 2002.
