Fans who want more in-state kids on John Calipari’s Kentucky basketball roster will be happy to know the staff will pay a visit to Dontaie Allen, a three-star guard out of Pendleton County.
UK assistant Joel Justus will make the hour-drive on Saturday to watch Allen work out at his high school. For those unfamiliar with Allen’s game, he is a 6-7 shooting guard, ranked 41st at his position in the Class of 2019. He averaged 31.8 points per game for Pendleton County this past season, earning him First Team All-State honors in Kentucky.
Allen, who will play his AAU ball for M.A.T.T.S. Mustangs this summer, currently has offers from the likes of Illinois State, Winthrop, IUPUI, Eastern Kentucky, Morehead State and Northern Kentucky. John Robic was in to see him his freshman year, but the interest could be getting serious as Allen enters his senior season.
