Rosco Allen is probably best known for being Shabazz Muhammad's teammate at Bishop Gorman in Las Vegas. However the 6'8", 215 pound power forward is fast coming into his own as a top recruit himself. Coast2Coast Hoops reports that Allen will be on his way to visit Johnny Dawkins and the Stanford Cardinal at the end of the month.
Watching his recruiting tape, Allen certainly looks comfortable in his mid-range game. He's good at pulling up and knocking down jumpers from outside. He could be very valuable as a big man who can stretch the floor, although it remains to be seen how effective Allen is in the post and how well he can get score easy points in college.
Allen has received multiple offers from big-time schools, including 10 of the 12 Pac-12 schools (Arizona, Oregon, UCLA and USC included; Cal is one of the schools that is not recruiting Allen). But the hometown UNLV Rebels have long been rumored to be the team to beat for Allen, so all these schools will have to step up their efforts to land him.
