Five-star center Jarrett Allen made the short drive across Austin to watch the Longhorns' Orange-White Scrimmage on Wednesday

Also in town for the scrimmage was 2016 Longhorns commitment Jacob Young.

Just how big of a recruit is Jarrett Allen (Austin/St. Stephens Episcopal)?

After Texas' Orange-White scrimmage inside Gregory Gym on Wednesday, Allen was being asked for autographs and pictures just as the Longhorns were. 

That's what happens when you're 6-foot-10 with a 'fro that pushes him to 7-feet coupled with a skillset that has him rated as the No. 3 center and No. 16 player overall in 2016. 

Allen has visited the Longhorns before but getting him to an event - 3,129 in attendance inside Gregory Gym, which put it right around capacity - was perfect for Shaka Smart and his staff.

That's Allen saying hellow to Smart alongside Young. 

Allen is easily Texas' top target left in 2016 along with four-star shooting guard Andrew Jones
