Following his scholarship offer from Xavier on Monday afternoon, Dontaie Allen also picked up the first school prediction on his 247Sports Crystal Ball page.

247Sports national recruiting analyst Brian Snow, who covered Allen at a recent event in Indianapolis, is now picking the Musketeers for the in-state basketball standout from Pendleton County.

Xavier Coach Travis Steele watched Allen — a 6-foot-7 small forward — play on back-to-back days in Indianapolis as part of the final evaluation period of the spring. U of L head coach Chris Mack also watched Allen in one of those games.

UK assistant coach Joel Justus recently visited Allen at his high school and invited him to play pickup games with the current team next month. The Cats will continue to monitor Allen’s progress and recruitment for a possible scholarship offer down the road.

The Herald-Leader’s Josh Moore caught up with Allen over the weekend. You can read that story here.
