Allen, a 6-foot-7, 216-pound forward, has appeared in 22 of 29 games this season. He is averaging 2.0 points and 1.9 rebounds in 8 minutes per game — ranking 11th on the team in minutes per game.
The Texas native played in 32 games, making eight starts, as a freshman a year ago. Allen averaged 3.3 points and 3.1 rebounds in 17 minutes per game, which was sixth on the team.
“We are excited to add D’Angelo to our family here at Missouri,” Tigers coach Kim Anderson said in a press release announcing Allen’s signing. “D'Angelo is an outstanding young man and comes from an tremendous program at Dallas Kimball High School. He has a winner’s mentality and helped his team to three state titles in four years, so he does whatever it takes to help his team win. He can score, rebound, defend and block shots, and I really appreciate his willingness to put team success over his personal accolades. He is going to be a great addition to our program.”
Allen becomes the second player to leave the program this month, following the dismissal of junior guard Wes Clark.
