Shagari Alleyne, a 7-3, 250-pound junior center from Rice H.S. in New York, N.Y., told us he thought about making a decision before the summer ended but decided to wait and take his time. "All of the coaches that are recruiting were at the Eastern Invitational," Alleyne said. "It's very hard to choose one school. They are all great schools."
Alleyne finished his high school junior year in sparkling fashion. He helped Rice win the Catholic League title in New York City and was named the MVP. He usually plays with the New York Gauchos. "I may play in some Fall events," Shagari said. "I don't know if I will be at the Five Star camp."
Alleyne has the size and is now polishing his skills for college. Alleyne continues to keep an open mind in his recruiting process. "I don't know now what school I would choose if I had to make a decision today," Alleyne said. "I think I need more time."
Alleyne previously indicated that he had a very good trip to Louisville. Temple, North Carolina, UConn, Miami, Rutgers, St. John's, Seton Hall, Villanova, Louisville, Kentucky, Rutgers, Seton Hall and Villanova have been mentioned by Alleyne as schools of interest.
Alleyne said he was unsure of where he would visit next but confirmed what his dad told us yesterday that Kentucky would get one of the visits.
