As a junior he's on pace to break 3k points.... Kudos to the staff for identifying a good kid and a good player but nothing gold ever stays.

I saw him at the Evansville game, and also at the Taste before the game. I was curious who he was. Mystery solved.

Sounds like this kid has the skills and emotional grounding people have been talking about needing.

About 2200 living in Falmouth. Closer to Cincy than Lexington or Louisville. Definitely a diamond in the ruff. Belmont may have the inside track since his current coach is an alum.

That, and if he's been to Nashville/Belmont. Depends on what you are looking for, but Nashville/Belmont probably blows away the Normal/ISU thing from an aesthetic standpoint for a lot of people. But, does Nashville have a Portillo's? :lol:

Kid is starting to blow up. The offers haven't come in yet but he has picked up interest from the likes of Belmont, Florida, Florida State, West Virginia, Creighton, Cincinnati, Xavier, and Kentucky.

He already holds the record for 3 pointers made in his HS with just shy of 200 before his senior season. 2,697 pts 1,044 rebs w/ 1 season left.

He has a connection to Aaron Holmes (coaches the prep school Rey went to.)
He is friends with EKU transfer, and ISU target Dedric Boyd. (They would play 3 years together here).
He's a HUGE UK fan.

It'd be a steal if we could get him to sign in the Fall before all these schools start to offer. They will probably start offering this summer.

When Portillo's decided to come to Normal they were considering moving into the Bone center. Can you imagine how great that would have been for recruiting, especially the Chicago recruits? I'm glad they didn't move there. I work on campus and I would be 450 lbs by now...far too convenient...

Dontaie Allen, SF/PF, MATTS Mustangs
Playing off one of the major shoe circuits it is tough to get out and see Allen as much, but college coaches definitely made their way to the Terrific 24 to check in on this Kentucky native. Allen is a highly skilled prospect who can do a little bit of everything at 6-foot-6. He isn't the most fluid or explosive athlete, but Allen creates a ton of space with his step back jumper, and then also has an excellent looking shooting stroke. Beyond that Allen can pass, is a solid rebounder, and makes others better as well. It is a matter of time before he begins to get high-major offers.
Recruiting: Providence, Xavier, Purdue, Louisville, Western Kentucky, Illinois State, Northern Kentucky, Marshall, IUPUI

Allen was offered by Tenn State last week. It's probably fair to assume that Penny Collins was the lead recruiter on this guy.
