HoopHall Classic Scouting Reports: 2012 Prospects (Part Two)
January 19, 2012
Joe Treutlein

One of the more impressive performers of the weekend, Rosco Allen (#72 Scout, #73 Rivals, #5 ESPN) has a very well developed feel for the game and the skill set to match, both of which he used to play a key role in his team's 73-65 victory over DeMatha.

Standing 6'9 with a mediocre 6'8 wingspan and just a decent frame, Rosco Allen is a good but not great athlete, getting by much more due to his highly developed skills than his physical tools. He plays somewhat of a hybrid 3/4 role at the high school level and should project to do the same in college, though it's unclear which position he's best suited for in the long term.

One of Allen's best assets at this stage is his three-point shooting ability, something he displayed by knocking down 2-of-4 attempts in the game here. Allen has great mechanics and does a good job getting open in a variety of situations, being equally dangerous in both the half court and transition with his jumper.

Allen's shot creation ability is not highly refined, but it doesn't need to be given the style of game he plays. He does a great job getting to the basket in transition, on cuts, and on offensive rebounds, where he does a solid job finishing in traffic and isn't afraid to draw contact. He has enough ball-handling ability to be a threat on straight-line drives, especially given the attention defenses need to pay him due to his shooting and passing abilities.

As a passer, Allen is highly advanced in both his vision and ability for his position and age, as he sees the floor very well and can find open teammates from various areas of the floor. He showed some nice ability passing out of both the high post and from behind the three-point arc here, netting an impressive four assists on the game.

On the defensive end, Allen plays with a solid level of energy and focus, though there are some question marks about what position he's best suited to defend in the long term. His lateral quickness for a small forward and strength and size for a power forward both appear to be questionable, so how he adjusts to college level competition on this end of the floor will be key.

Looking forward, Allen is a player to keep an eye on in the long term, and has the makings of a very good college role player at the very least. His long term potential will depend on how he develops physically and adjusts to higher level competition, but he certainly has the skills and feel to give him a chance at getting into the NBA eventually.
