Adam Allen was this close to making a decision. The four-star wing from Milton (Fla.) High School told reporters at the Tournament of Champions that he would announce his college destination at a press conference by this weekend. Those plans have changed.
The 6-foot-6 rising senior was ready to decide on Alabama, Florida or Florida State. But Allen, the No. 66 ranked player in the class of 2007, has since decided to wait a little longer sources told Rivals.com.
He has already unofficially Alabama and Florida but wants to make another trip to Tallahassee and see Florida State before making his decision final.
"I want to think about it, pray about it and find the school where I can become the best player I can be and be happy," Allen said.
Allen was originally planning on seeing the Seminoles this weekend instead he will have a MRI on his ankle. He tore some ligaments in his right ankle at the TOC.
Allen is also a baseball prospect and made the point that he will play both sports in college. Alabama and Florida have offered him for baseball. He recently spent time with the baseball and basketball team in Gainesville.
"Florida is a great program obviously because they just won the National Championship," Allen said. "They have a great group of guys there and a great class. Gainesville is about basketball and it's a great environment down there."
With a couple of trips to Alabama, Allen said he has a good feel for the Tide.
"Tuscaloosa revolves around 'Bama. It's everything there," Allen said. "The facilities are really nice. The program is really good. The coaches are great."
Allen is no stranger to the Seminoles. His father starred there before having a cup of coffee in the NBA.
"I grew up around Florida State. We have family and friends all over the place there. I know the city like the back of my hand, too," Allen said. "It's only two and a half hours down the road. They've been recruiting me since I was a freshman and coach (Leonard) Hamilton has done a good job of rebuilding the program."
Now the clock is ticking.
