"I was really disappointed to hear about Coach Howland being fired," said Allen. "I feel bad because he's a really good coach and I was looking forward to playing for him."
When asked if he still plans on enrolling at UCLA, Allen replied, "Yes, definitely. I committed to the school and that's where I want to be. They have a high level of basketball, it's a great school and it's closer to home than the other schools that were recruiting me."
