ESPN U has released a national ranking of NCAA Basketball prospects, and two of the top 100 have committed to the Stanford Cardinals. Rosco Allen, a small forward from Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas is ranked at No. 66, and Grant Verhoven, a center from Central Valley Christian School in Vasalia, California is ranked at No. 88.
Allen is listed at 6'9" and 210lbs, with the suggestion that he could easily add more weight. As the scouting report puts it:
Allen has a sinewy frame that should fill out nicely at the next level. He has a prolific stroke out to the 3-point line and his release is quick.
Verhoven is listed at 6'8" and 215lbs, with praise for his fundamentals. The scouting report:
Verhoeven has steadily improved in the past year and his frame has filled out as well. he is deceptively bouncy and has a variety of ways to score in the paint.
Both got a scout grade in the low 90s and signed with Stanford back in October.
