Jordan's Glad He's Going With Mo

Reporter Mike Sullivan takes a free look at the individual game of senior prospect Jordan Allen, who is going to play division one college basketball for Hofstra University ...

Jordan Allen, a 6-foot-6 combo forward from Long Island Lutheran High School in Brookville, New York, is excited about playing division one college basketball next season for the Hofstra basketball program.

Allen, who played last year at Bay Shore High School on Long Island, New York, has signed a letter of intent to play for new head coach Mo Cassara.

WHAT JORDAN THINKS OF HOFSTRA AND COACH MO CASSARA:

"I'm excited about the chance to play for Hofstra. I like Coach a lot and I'm excited about having a chance to play there. I'll do whatever coach needs me to do."

"Everything added up," said Jordan. "They had everything I look for in a school -- great education, great program, a new coach (Mo Cassara)."

"When my father, myself and Gary Charles (program director of the New York Panthers) sat down with coach Cassara, who told me flat out everything is going to be earned," Allen said.

"He felt like I could come in right away and play and be a major factor," Allen continued.

"What was most important to me was the fact that he said that I'm going to have to work and that my reward would come later. That's all I could ask for, only because nothing in this world is given for free."

"I really like the coaching staff too," he said, giving credit to the head coach and the assistants for his decision.
