Allen, 18, signed a Homegrown Player contract with Inter Miami in March after winning USL League One Young Player of the year honors with Inter Miami CF II in 2021. In 2022, he became the second Inter Miami Academy product to feature in an MLS match, and first to start an MLS match, when he featured in the team’s home opener on Feb. 26 against the Chicago Fire.

Allen was also called up to the U.S. U-20 MYNT earlier this year, featuring as one of 26 players at a training camp at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida.
