Peyton Allen gives a nice interview after his visit to DePaul but highlights how they have not won much lately - and how his only offer still is from Bradley.

New Premium article on Peyton Allen

"Peyton Allen Looking for Super Sophomore Year"

Peyton Allen visited (DePaul)...and enjoyed what he saw.

DePaul will have to fight off stiff competition as Allen has high majors all over
the country coming after him.
“Ohio State, Kansas State, Oklahoma State, Illinois, DePaul, Wisconsin, Iowa,
Northwestern, Purdue, Michigan, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Wake Forest, West
Virginia, Bradley, and Marquette.”

He does not have a specific timetable for when he wants to decide..
“It is probably going to be the coaches and players,” said Allen. “I want to
have a chance to get to the NCAA tournament and win it all
It is important to have a good coach that likes to run and gun. I am looking
for a coach that will give his players freedom and a school that has a chance
to win a national championship.”

It was great getting the exposure as Coach Mike Mullins is great at getting his
players exposure. I am glad I can play for him as he is a great coach and a
great guy.
“I am a point guard or shooting guard that likes to create off the dribble and
pass,” said Allen. “I can score, get in the lane, make a great pass, and shoot
it.”

“I still think I will be the main scorer and distributer,” Allen said. “I want to
play point guard so I can distribute and get more assists. I would like to
average a double-double with points and assists.”
During his freshman year he was the primary ball handler for his team, but on
the AAU circuit he played off the ball."

I would love to have him. I think Wisconsin seems like a good fit for him though. He is not someone I feel we had absolutely no chance with (Like Parker). I still hope maybe he will consider BU.

New premium article on Peyton Allen...
He mentions Bradley quite prominently in his first paragraph...

"I've got the two offers from Oklahoma State and Bradley, and I'm also hearing
from other schools like Iowa, Michigan, Tennessee, Illinois, Wisconsin, Ohio
State, most of the Big Ten," Allen said. "I don't really have a favorite at this
point. I'm just trying to take in every school and campus I can. I'm just anxious
to get to know the coaches at each school and the system they run, stuff like
that."

He also has tons of praises for Coach Mullins of the Illinois Wolves program...

Peyton Allen will visit Bradley Thursday.

I have also heard two other Jets will visit to BU:
Jalen Henry and Scottie Wallace. Both are sophomores. Henry is from Springfield Southeast. He's 6-7, and still growing.. but he's already had knee surgery. Wallace is from Springfield Lanphier. He's also already 6-7.
