Tulane Offers John Tyler Defenders Tre Allison + Dekalen Goodson
John Tyler linebacker Tre Allison and hybrid Dekalen Goodson now have a fifth opportunity to be teammates at the next level thanks to Tuesday morning offers from Tulane.
The Green Wave program's scholarship invitations, which were first announced by the John Tyler coaching staff, mark Allison's seventh opportunity from an NCAA Division I FBS member and Goodson's sixth FBS choice.
Allison (6-0, 200) and Goodson's (6-2, 215) common offer list is rounded out by Louisiana-Lafayette, Mississippi State, SMU and Texas State. As rising seniors, they will both become eligible to sign with any program that offers them in December.
John Tyler held six of 13 opponents last season to no more than two touchdowns and averaged 24.6 points against per game en route to a co-district championship, an appearance in the Class 6A regional semifinals and an overall record of 11-2.
Goodson recorded 70 tackles, 11 sacks, forced a fumble and recovered two fumbles through his junior season.
Allison, an SMU verbal commitment, led John Tyler last year with 118 tackles. He also carried the ball 17 times and scored three short-yardage touchdowns.
Tulane, located in New Orleans, posted a 4-8 record last season under first-year Willie Fritz. The season was a one-win improvement compared to the 2015 and 2014 campaigns.
The Green Wave has been to 12 bowl games in its 123-year history and owns a 4-8 record in those games. A charter member of the Southeastern Conference, Tulane left in 1966 and now participates in American Athletic Conference competition.
