Yet another potential guard addition to keep an eye on

Throw Thomas Allen’s name onto the list of possible late additions to Kentucky’s 2017 class.

A former NC State signee, Allen was granted his release from the Wolfpack and has re-opened his recruitment. Kentucky is among the list of programs that has expressed interest, according to The News & Observer in Raleigh.

The 6-2, 180-pound guard is out of Brewster Academy, known as somewhat of a basketball factory in New Hampshire. He is currently rated as a three-star prospect, ranked as the No. 31 shooting guard in the class in the 247 Composite Rankings.

Watch his junior year mixtape (it’s the best available) below to see what he can do.

      Makes since given the upperclassmen we are losing. Those kinds of kids are essential to the stability of the program with so many one and dones coming in and out.

      The only 3 star kid that will ever sign with Cal would be a Kentuckian – knowing that they will play very little and be recruited over every single year they’re here…

      Luether, why are you worried about who signs with California? This is UK. (Although some Kentuckians on California’s roster would definitely help them, I’m sure.)

    This kid wouldn’t see the floor for two years and then transfer. That’s the problem with Cal playing his starters 35+ minutes during a blowout.

      You can’t get the starters ready for March by sitting them in January.

    We are losing tremendous leadership from the guard spot: Briscoe, Hawkins, Mulder, Fox and Monk. Holy cow!

    Replacing them we have Quade Green, Diablo (affectionately dubbed), Alexander, and who else? We could take TWO more guards. At least one more.

    How interested is Mark Smith from Chicago? How about Tremont Waters ?

    Looks like he’s 13 in that picture… but then again so did Tyler Ulis!

    6’2″, a little short for a shooting guard… but then again so was Monk!

    In Cal I trust.

    Now is the time we need that Matthew’s kid who left uk and transfered to Michigan.

    If he’s 6’2, I’m 7’6.
