Pendleton County senior Dontaie Allen announced his commitment to the University of Kentucky on Thursday.
Allen is the first in-state commit to choose the Wildcats since Dominique Hawkins (Madison Central) and Derek Willis (Bullitt East) signed with UK as part of its 2013 recruiting class. He is the first high-major boys’ basketball recruit to ever come out of Pendleton County.
The Wildcats play in the 10th Region, which is one of the state’s more geographically diverse regions; it includes Campbell County, the region’s defending champ, but goes as far south as Clark County and Montgomery County.
Here’s Pendleton County’s regular-season schedule as of Aug. 2, according the KHSAA. Note that it includes multiple TBD matchups, which are part of December holiday events that are typically contingent on the outcome of other games in the event.
