Bulls announce signing of combo guard Allen
USF coach Stan Heath announced the signing Thursday of junior college combo guard Corey Allen, a versatile player who should help the Bulls move to a more uptempo style next season.
"He is a solid combo guard who can make a lot of plays, both scoring the ball and being able to find guys with his passing ability," Heath said in a statement. "He's very quick, so he'll give us an extra dynamic of speed on the court and an added dimension of being able to play with two ball-handling guards at the same time."
Allen, 6 feet tall, is from St. Louis, Mo., but played the last two seasons at Mount San Antonio College in California. He averaged 21.1 points and 4.2 assists as a sophomore, hitting an impressive 61.8 percent of his shots from the field. He is the seventh member of Heath's incoming recruiting class, joining a pair of top-100 big men in John Egbunu (now at Faith Baptist in Brandon) and Bartow's Chris Perry. The Bulls also have Orlando forward Dre Clayton, Michigan wing Bo Zeigler and points guards Drew Davis and Josh Heath (Stan's son, from Tampa Prep).
