One East Texas player will be going even farther east this fall.

Tre Allison, a linebacker for John Tyler, announced his decision via Twitter on Sunday to attend Syracuse in 2018 on athletic scholarship.

John Tyler finished the season 5-5 and missed the playoffs, but Allison was a force all season. He was second in tackles with 89, tied for the team lead in interceptions with two and also forced a fumble.

Allison was verbally committed to SMU, but decommitted. Former Mustang coach Chad Morris recently left to become the coach at Arkansas. Allison also held offers from Mississippi State, Arkansas State and Louisiana Lafayette.

Syracuse plays in the ACC and missed bowl competition this season after a 4-8 finish.

All commitments are non-binding until a recruit signs his national letter of intent.
