When pressed on his recruitment Allen said, "It's still really early."
Allen impresses at UA Invitational
One of the most eye-catching prospects at the Under Armour Invitational this past weekend in Houston (Tex.) was 2016 post prospect Jarrett Allen. Playing for Marland Lowe's Texas Pro squad, Allen, a 6-foot-10, 225-pound center prospect, showed promise on both ends of the floor. "It's going really well," Allen said of his spring. "I'm playing 16's and 17's. 17's is more of a challenge and 16's is fun." What does Allen think are the strengths of his game? "Blocking shots, getting that easy post up and sometimes a turn around jumper," the Austin (Tex.) St. Stephen's Episcopal School standout said. Allen is an impressive looking prospect. Allen is mobile, a good athlete and has good defensive instincts. Offensively the tools are there, as he has good hands and can finish plays around the rim. He's also capable of making jump shots. College coaches have begun to take notice of Allen, who averaged 14 points and 10 rebounds a game as a junior. Baylor, Kansas State, SMU and Texas have offered him a scholarship. Texas A&M and Oklahoma State are also showing interest. All has taken one unofficial visit. "I took an unofficial to Baylor," he said. "It was fun. They have good facilities and coaches."
