Allen, listed as a four-star prospect, saw a major jump in the rankings this month, going from unranked to No. 46 overall in Rivals’ player rankings.
Considered one of the fastest-rising prospects in the nation, the Pendleton native now holds offers from Florida, Louisville, Auburn, Oklahoma, and Xavier, among others. Several of the blue-blood programs are also showing interest as of late.
He is set to visit Lexington next week, where a scholarship offer is expected to come.
Check out his highlight reel from last season:
Keep him home, Coach Cal.
