“Since day one Coach (Kevin) Nickelberry and Coach Wade have shown love to me and my family,” Allen said. "And their playing style, I love playing defense and coach Wade let's his guards ball out, so I felt like it’s the best opportunity. Me and my family prayed, and it's time to get to work.

"Coach Wade is a great coach. He flew down to my game and surprised me and I was shocked. He called me every day and talked to me outside the game of basketball, and he's going to help me become a man. I'm all about structure and I feel like Will Wade can provide that for me."

Allen is LSU’s first commitment for the class of 2023.
