Kentucky head coach John Calipari is taking yet another look at Pendleton County product and major UK target, Dontaie Allen, tonight.

Coach Cal is courtside at the Kentucky Expo Center to watch the 6-foot-6 small forward participate in the Louisville Jam Fest, where his M.A.T.T.S. Mustangs will take on the Louisville Magic.

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.

    Good handles and a quick release. Looks like he could play 1-3.

    StuckinLville, thought pretty much the same thing. Uses both hands, deft passing skills, etc. Competition didn’t appear to put up much resistance however…..blocks all came against much smaller players, so not much of an indicator there….Would be nice addition unless other recruits at same wing type player are much better. If fairly even, then give nod to in-state player, but only if fairly even.
