Curtis Allen, 6-4 JR SF Rolling Hills (Caif.) Rolling Hills Prep, was playing this past weekend at the Fullcourt Press Fall Hoops Classic. Allen has the tools to be a terrific player, but he has yet to put it all together. With improved ball handling skills, and a more consistent approach to the game, Allen has a chance to be one of the elite wings in the west.
Allen was rumored during the summer to be a strong lean to USC. We asked him about the current state of his recruitment and Allen replied, "I've committed to USC." Allen went on to say, "We were going to keep it quiet for a while, but I've made my decision and I'm going to USC."
When asked about the factors in his decision, Allen said, "Mainly Coach Bibby. My Mom and I were very impressed with him. He's real straightforward. And we also had a chance to meet the academic people and they were real good as well."
