Pendleton County’s Dontaie Allen is a traveling man this summer. After taking a visit to the University of Kentucky earlier this month, Allen is now exploring other campuses and programs around college basketball.

The 6-6 forward was at Virginia Tech on Monday, where he currently holds a scholarship offer to play for the Hokies, and he will soon check out the happenings at Clemson, although he does not have an offer from the Tigers. He also has plans to visit Vanderbilt later this week.

Allen still does not have the coveted UK offer, but the staff will keep a close eye on him in the months ahead.

    I wouldn’t wait around for a UK offer. While it would be awesome to play for the home state Cats, if they really were interested, he’d already have an offer. With this lack of commitment from the staff, that’s a pretty clear sign that if he does get a scholarship offer, he probably won’t get much playing time. He is wise to consider all options.

    He isn’t a top 30 recruit. He isn’t on anybody’s radar. So cal won’t offer him. Cal cares about getting kids to the nba. The reason he played uncoordinated Nick Richards over SKJ is still mind blowing.

      Coaches thought SKJ was lazy. Maybe Richards worked harder?

      I loved SKJ offensive ability. I thought he had the best offensive game down low last year. Unfortunately if you watch the game SKJ was physically weak and couldnt hold his position and he got pushed around by guys have his size.

      Like i said. Nick Richards was on the nba radar to begin the season. That’s the only reason why Cal kept playing him over SKJ. He was still a better option.

      Wrong again C-mart, Cal hates defensive liabilities. SKJ couldn’t hold his ground defensively, and when he tried to get physical defensively it anchored him to the floor and they went around him with ease. I loved his offensive rebounding effort, but his defensive footwork was terrible.
