One of the more intriguing prospects from the Capitol Hoops Summer League yesterday was from 2021, Quincy Allen, of Maret. Allen is a versatile and slashing guard with a lot of athleticism. He uses his versatility well which can allow him to knock three point shots down, he can pull up and hit from different areas on the court, rebound on both sides of the ball and is a solid defender. For only being a rising sophomore he is already showing signs of good leadership on and off the court.
This past season he was a key part to a Maret team that went to the state final four.
“My first year of high school went good, I have always played guard but I had to toughen it out on the block because one of our big men went down so overall it was a good year.”
He is hoping with summer league, it will be good preparation for another state final four run, “I just want to get better with the team, to improve, show our skills that we are working on everyday and look forward to a great next season.”
On the AAU circuit this spring he has been playing with the 15U New World team on the Adidas Gauntlet Circuit and he spoke about how that has been going, “We have been doing well, I have been working hard in the gym everyday and just trying to get better each and everyday.”
The first school to offer Allen was Howard, which is one of the hometown schools and he spoke about that offer and program, “They have been coming to a couple open gyms, supporting me and showing love. Coach Jordan Brooks, from over there offered me a couple months ago.”
When asked about which other schools are beginning to show interest, he said, “Mississippi State, Georgia and American.”
