This weekend, it'll be Kentucky's turn to try to wow five-star basketball recruit Jarrett Allen, a quiet, unassuming kid who also happens to be one of the best post players in the country.
Allen — a 6-foot-10 prospect from Austin, Texas — has approached his recruitment a little differently than most of his peers. There have been no daily Twitter updates to keep fans guessing about which way he might be leaning, no Instagram posts with him posing in the gear of the schools on his list, and very few media interviews.
"Jarrett is old school," said Scout.com's Evan Daniels. "He is handling this recruiting process differently than the new-age kid handles it. He is taking his time. He is going through the visit process. He's asking different questions to these coaches than some of these other players have. He's just going about this whole deal in a different way."
Partly because of that, Allen hasn't received the same amount of attention as some other players ranked in similar spots by the recruiting services.
Never miss a local story.
"He's kind of flown under the radar," Daniels said.
Off the court, he's not seeking the limelight. On the court, he's doing plenty to earn it.
Allen averaged 21.4 points and 13.3 rebounds for St. Stephen's Episcopal as a junior last season. He spent his summer with Texas PRO on the Adidas circuit, averaging 20.1 points and 9.7 rebounds while making 60 percent of his field-goal attempts.
Scout.com pegs Allen as the No. 16 overall prospect in the class of 2016, which has been touted as one of the most talented groups in recent years.
"Offensively, he probably doesn't get enough credit." Daniels said. "He has a terrific set of hands and touch around the goal. He can make jump hooks. He can face up and make short-range shots. He's really gotten confident when he goes over his left shoulder. He just scores it well around the basket.
"And because of his athleticism and his ability to get off the court quickly, he's a good rebounder and a guy who contests shots."
UK will host Allen for an official visit this weekend, the latest in a series of trips as he gets more serious about his college recruitment.
Allen started the process with an official visit to Notre Dame last month. He has since taken official visits to Kansas and Houston, and he's also been on some unofficial visits to hometown Texas.
The other schools on his list are Indiana, Kansas State and North Carolina.
Both ESPN and the recruiting website Hoopseen.com have recently called Kentucky the favorite to land Allen, but Daniels says it's still unclear which way he's leaning, in part because he rarely discusses his recruitment at all.
What is clear is that UK badly wants to add one more post player to its recruiting class of 2016, and Allen is in a top tier of frontcourt targets that also includes Harry Giles, Edrice "Bam" Adebayo and Marques Bolden.
The other three players on that list have already taken official visits to UK. Giles and Adebayo are expected to announce their college decisions in the next couple of weeks, and Bolden could do the same.
When Allen will be ready to reveal his college choice is still anyone's guess.
"I don't think Jarrett Allen knows right now where he wants to go to school," Daniels said. "He's starting to get an idea with these visits. And the visit to Kentucky will be a learning experience for Kentucky and for Jarrett, just like it was for these other schools."
