Allen, though, is a superior prospect than either one of his more highly touted teammates. He's got a terrific frame, with length and quickness, to go with very good ball skills and an excellent feel for the game. He has a chance to be one of the elite players in the west for 2013.
I spoke with Allen and asked him about the schools that have been recruiting him so far.
I asked Allen what he is looking for in a school.
"I want to major in sports management or communications, so that will be important," said Allen. "I'd like to stay on the West Coast if possible. Early playing time isn't important. I just want to go somewhere where we can win big and have a chance to go to the Final Four."
I asked Allen if there are any schools that he knows he would like to visit officially.
"I'd like to visit Pepperdine, UCLA, USC and Arizona," said Allen.
Allen doesn't have a specific time frame in mind for picking a school.
"I'd just like to get it done sometime before my senior year," said Allen.
Allen said he has a 3 2 GPA.
