There may not be a player on the Arizona Wildcats roster who better represents what spring football is about than quarterback Javelle Allen.

The Prosper, Texas, native redshirted the 2012 season — his first in Tucson. Now, he finds himself under the Rich Rodriguez microscope.

“He knows the pressure is on him a little bit, and I want the pressure to be on him,” Rodriguez said.

Allen is trying to prove that the race to be the starting quarterback in 2013 isn’t a three-man competition among Jesse Scroggins, Anu Solomon and B.J. Denker. Spring is just the time for that.
