Bryon Allen Looking at 4 Schools

Point guard Bryon Allen of Upper Marlboro, Md. is looking at four schools for next year.

The 6-foot-3, 205-pound Allen is considering Siena, Oregon, Boston College and Providence.

“I’m signing in April,” Allen said Sunday by phone, referring to the NCAA late signing period.

Allen initially committed to West Virginia but lost his scholarship opportunity when Joe Mazzulla was granted a medical redshirt. Mazzulla will be back with the Mountaineers in 2010-11.

Allen spent two years at Oak Hill (Va.) Academy but is spending his senior season playing for Jere Quinn at St. Thomas More in Oakdale, Conn. Allen said he chose St. Thomas More because the New England schools play in a league with a shot clock. To read more of this story, click here
