Yet another school outside of the Bluegrass is in hot pursuit of Pendleton County’s Dontaie Allen.
Today, Vanderbilt extended a scholarship offer to Allen during his visit to the Nashville campus. Allen is currently on an unofficial visit with the Commodores’ basketball program and head coach Bryce Drew decided it was time to offer him a spot on the team.

The offer brings Allen’s list up to 16 schools, but Kentucky is not among them… yet.
UK assistant Joel Justus will get another look at Allen at the Under Armour event in Atlanta in a couple of weeks. Justus has been the lead recruiter on Allen and has seen him a couple of times, most recently during an on-campus visit in Lexington earlier this month.
Allen visited Virginia Tech earlier this week, and will take a trip to Clemson this weekend.
Kentucky should extend the offer to the in-state star before it’s too late.
