South Grand Prairie's Tray Allen
, a five-star offensive tackle prospect from the 2007 class, has been given the chance to try out the defensive tackle position in camp. The 6-5, 315-pounder has been running second team left guard and third team left tackle.
The cross-training began last Friday, the day after the two open practices.
The move is considered a trial and not a permanent move at this point. Sources also say that speculation about possible grade issues with current defensive tackles Lamarr Houston and Ben Alexander are inaccurate.
