London had 1,084 receiving yards and seven touchdowns last season for the Trojans. As for Allgeier, he was one of the most productive running backs in the nation, rushing for 1,601 yards and 23 touchdowns on the ground.
Both players could play a big role in the team’s offensive rebuild. Shortly after the Allgeier and London signings were announced, the team agreed to terms with Georgia TE John FitzPatrick and OL Justin Shaffer.
Less than 30 mins until schedule release and look at all these happy faces.
