Big Man From Mount Vernon Has D-1 Looks

An update on a rising senior from Mount Vernon High School ...

In the words of Coach Bob Cimmino of Mount Vernon High School in Mount Vernon, New York: "His 6-foot-6 2009 big man Vaughn Allen is a stud."

With the players he has had in the past this is a pretty good recommendation.

Vaughn was the player this year who was all over the court, outworking opponents to grab rebounds and loose balls.

Allen did a lot of the dirty work for the higher profile players too this past season. He averaged over five points and four rebounds a game.

Vaughn grabbed 66 offensive boards during the 2007-2008 season. His tenacity makes him a power forward or even a five for a lower major team.

Quinnipiac has shown the most interest so far. Coach Cimmino feels he is definitely a player that mid-majors should look at too.

Other locals have inquired such as Central Connecticut State and Manhattan. Perhaps there might be more locals taking a look such as St. Francis, Stony Brook, Fairfield, St. Peter's, Rider, and Monmouth.

This is a big summer for the active big man.
