Top Three For Allen

Dakarai Allen, one of the elite wings in the class of 2013, says three schools currently top his list...

Dakarai Allen, 6-4 SG/SF Sacramento (Calif.) Sheldon, is one of the elite prospects in the west for 2013. A great athlete, Allen has a rare combination of athleticism, feel, passing ability, unselfishness and defensive ability. He's not a great shooter, but his stroke is fine and he makes enough shots that you can see improvement in the future. He's very good when slashing to the basket and either scoring or finding a teammate.

I spoke with Allen recently and asked him about the schools that have been in contact with him to date.

"Colorado, Arizona and Boise State were the ones that called recently," said Allen. "I'm also hearing from Stanford, Cal, Pepperdine, Arizona State, Gonzaga, Washington State and UCLA."

I asked Allen if he has any favorites at the moment.

"I like Colorado, Arizona and Pepperdine," said Allen. "I've been talking to Arizona a lot."

When asked what he is looking for in a school, Allen said "I'm just looking for the best fit for me to succeed. I don't really care about the location."

Allen said he has a 3.2 GPA.
