Grayson Allen for the Republican Nomination?

The nation became familiar with Grayson Allen this past spring when the Duke guard helped propel the Blue Devils to an amazing comeback in the national championship game.

After having what Mike Krzyzewski has called one of the all-time great performances to spark the team to a victory, Allen now returns to Duke for his sophomore season and appears poised for a breakout year with a much greater role in the rotation.

Or…is he seeking the presidential nomination for the Republican Party?

As Kyler Robbins pointed out on Twitter during Wednesday night’s Republican debate on CNN, Allen has a surprising resemblance to Texas Senator Ted Cruz.

I generally avoid all political issues, but Grayson gets my vote…for Preseason All-ACC.
