Player Report: Allen Gant
S Allen Gant (6-2/205/4.6) has decided to follow in his fathers footsteps (Tony Gant) and wear the maize and blue. Gant is a pure, hard hitting safety that provides the physical mentality Michigan is looking for. Gant is from Sylvania, OH and attends Sylvania Southview HS. As a junior Gant finished the season with 56 tackles, three interceptions and two fumbles caused. Gant also shows his versatility by playing WR, last season he had 20 receptions for one touchdown. If I personally had to make a comparison to Gant I would say he is just like Thomas Gordon, hard-hitting, and does his job. He may not necessarily be a playmaker but he does his job and won’t miss tackles.
