Running back turned tight end turned defensive lineman Cordary Allen has left the Colorado football program, coach Jon Embree confirmed.

Allen, a member of the 2010 recruiting class -- the final class of former coach Dan Hawkins' tenure -- never quite found a spot to fit into in the CU program. He came to Boulder from Phenix City, Ala., where he was a standout at Central High School. He chose CU late in the recruiting process over offers from schools such as Western Kentucky, Tulsa and Army.

Allen is the eighth member of the 2010 recruiting class to part ways with the program, including several of the 24 signees that year who failed to qualify academically.
