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. In addition, he plays hard at both ends and his expression rarely changes on the court. Astute passer who sees the floor exceptionally well. Capable to triggering the break and dropping assists in the halfcourt. The long and lean 4/3 can stroke jump shots and attack the rim, but his most underrated skill is his passing prowess. Whether in the half court set or on the break his passing skills demonstrate savvy and a high IQ for this game.
Rosco needs to find other areas of the game to impact other than shooting. Defensively, he'll need to gain strength to guard a 4 at the next level because he doesn't possess great lateral quickness. He is a finesse player that gets banged around in the paint area. With the added strength he'll become a more proficient rebounder and ball handler as defenders that get into him can give him some problems. Has to transition from being a finesse four man and become more apt to rebound. He's not strong but has height and will need to exploit his advantages going forward. Needs to get winning to mix it up in the lane.
Allen continues to exhibit why he is easily one of the Top 5 prospects in the west for his class. He may struggle guarding quicker/stronger 4-men at the next level, but he'll be a handful to stop on the other end. He is a terror in transition where he can knock down the 3-point shot, hand out the nifty assist, or dunk over the competition. With added strength he could be in the NBA lottery within a few years.
