Call it a roundabout effort, but while scouring the web, I came across a Kentucky recruiting target I hadn't yet seen.
Lavoy Allen, a 6'8" center/power forward in the 2007 class from Pennsbury (PA.) High School near Philly, apparently got a visit from Tubby Smith this Friday.
Allen looks to have offers from Virginia, Virginia Tech, Rutgers and Temple and looks to be a big Rutgers target. According to Scout, he has interest in the Cats, though these lists are notoriously out-of-date. A summer AAU roundup had this to say about Allen's game:
How did I find this? Via this local Pennsylvania column, ostensibly on Eagles head coach Andy Reid, which takes the "Fire Tubby" crew to task for what he perceives as irrational expectations.
Allen apparently averaged 12 points and 9 rebounds a game as a Junior. He has physical tools, needs polish, but appears to be a hard worker and -- in a twist -- a rebounding force.
