Terrell Allen figured to play a prominent role as a receiver and big-play return man last year until a ligament tear in his left wrist forced him to redshirt during the 2004 campaign...the injury was sustained during spring drills and required surgery...made a healthy return this spring and, although he needed to shake off some rust, should be a competitive factor at flanker during fall training camp...will also figure in the return game...as a true frosh in 2003, Allen evolved into a dangerous kick returner and led the team with a 23.6-yard average..."Terrell has great speed," receivers coach Aubrey Hill said. "After shaking off some of the rust from the inactive year he can help us. That speed can put pressure on a defense. He can also be a threat in the return game."
