DECISION TIME: Not sure of when he might make a decision

STRENGTHS IN HIS INDIVIDUAL GAME: Allan is a very versatile player. His individual game has a lot of upside to it and he appears to be improving from event to event. He's likely to land more offers as the summer finishes up. He also has a mid-range game.

AREAS TO IMPROVE IN HIS INDIVIDUAL GAME: Chaney needs to make sure each possession is played hard all the time. If he is to achieve a high elite status, Allan needs to use his size to become a better defensive presence.

CONCLUSION: Allan as a world of talent. He has a soft touch at mid range with a power game and body inside. He has had a tremendous summer camp season and also has played well with his AAU team. Schools have jumped on him in a hurry and with a look at the schools quickly. He is a typical big man who needs to play hard all the time.
