Olympian Devon Allen says he’s going pro in track, the Olympic hurdler and Oregon wide receiver says he will forgo his remaining eligibility with the Ducks and pursue a professional track career. Allen, who finished fifth in the 110-meter hurdles at the Rio Olympics this summer, said Wednesday he does not yet have an agent. He is recovering from surgery to repair a torn ACL in his left knee. Allen said his aim is to win the gold medal in the 2020 Games, and then perhaps return to playing football professionally. He feels that turning pro and training full time gives him the best chance to medal. Allen appeared in the Ducks’ first three games this season before injuring his left knee and being ruled out for the rest of the season. Allen tore his anterior cruciate ligament during the fourth quarter of Oregon’s 35-32 loss at Nebraska on Sept. 17.
