DONTAIE ALLEN COMMITS TO KENTUCKY!

Kentuckian Dontaie Allen has committed to Kentucky after unofficially visiting Lexington the last two days. I guess that answers the question about if John Calipari and the Cats would offer Allen.

Allen becomes UK’s second commitment in the class of 2019, joining five-star guard Tyrese Maxey. Allen is ranked No. 47 in the Rivals150, which is one spot behind former UK commit D.J. Jeffries, and that ranking will only likely continue to rise after Allen’s summer.

Allen is a 6-foot-6, 200-pound wing player that plays for Pendleton County in Falmouth, Kentucky.

Well, UK didn’t have to wait long to replace Jeffries and it appears they’re getting a better offensive player who grew up a Kentucky fan. I don’t think we’ll have to worry about Allen backing off his pledge.

More coming to KSR soon.

UK unofficially welcomed Allen into the family.

      No disrespect to DJ, he is just following his dad’s lead. He was all about UK until his Pops started feeding him full of bull.

    Love this ,super excited to have ky boys represent, welcome to the family. But y’all need to go over to catsillustrated and check out Reid Travis interview NOW this young man is everything we ever wanted… do it NOW it’s in basketball forums click on it watch video and you will come away with the expectation that this is Our year. Can’t wait to see him beat on Zion! Go big blue

      You can tell by that video he has an extremely high b-ball IQ, very well spoken and will be an outstanding leader to our young guys. I think he is the piece that will take this from a great team to an elte (possible National C’chip) team.

    Cal said “I want to sign guys who grow up dreaming to play for Kentucky.” Well played, Well played.
    I’m excited to have another in-state player sign.

    Much rather have had this kid then Jeffries

      I was excited about Jeffries too. Just not his dad. His dad acts like he wanted things to be given to him. I think his dad and penny have been working things out behind the scenes.

    I’m fired up about this kid. Love getting some blue blood on the team.
