On a day when his jumper wasn't falling, Allen managed to impact the game in a number of different ways. A terrific athlete, Allen crashed the glass the entire game and finished with 15 rebounds. He got 13 points on a variety of moves to the basket and he had a number of excellent passes to teammates (many of which ended up not being converted). He's one of the better defenders in the west and he had several blocks and steals.
There are definitely other wings in the west that can score better at this time than Allen. However, there are very few that can match his combination of athleticism, physical upside, feel for the game, passing ability and unselfishness. He's almost unselfish to a fault.
I spoke with Allen following the game and asked him about the schools that are recruiting him.
I asked if he had a feel for which school is recruiting him the hardest.
"Colorado," said Allen. "I get a lot of stuff from them and they're always in contact."
Allen said he's still wide open at this time.
"All of the schools recruiting me are pretty equal right now," said Allen.
Allen doesn't anticipate taking any unofficial visits in the near future.
"I think I'm going to wait until after the summer to visit schools," said Allen.
Allen said he has a 3.5 GPA.
