Baylor MBB Receives Pledge From High Upside 7-foot Big Man

April 20, 2017

Baylor men's basketball received a commitment from an intriguing prospect for 2017 on Thursday evening when Leonard Allen (7-0, 225) gave his pledge to Scott Drew and the Bears. Allen is the older brother of Jarrett Allen, an expected lottery pick in the 2017 NBA draft out of Texas. 

Leonard averaged 15 points, 9 rebounds and 3 blocks as a senior at Round Rock High School in 2012-2013 and received a headlining offer from Memphis along with a few other schools.  But Leonard decided to give up basketball for two years and pursue outside interests including working with young people in a rec center.
