As soon as it was announced that Chris Allen was leaving the Michigan State basketball program, he started receiving lots of interest from other schools. Even though he wasn't leaving voluntarily and was kicked off the team, other schools immediately expressed interest, including the likes of Notre Dame, UConn, Memphis and South Florida, according to his mother.
None of those schools are on his final list of possible destinations, though. Lisa Byington is reporting, via Tom Izzo, that Allen has established a final list of Iowa State and UTEP, with late interest coming from St. John's. No word on when a decision will be made, but Allen visited Iowa State last week and spent the weekend taking in UTEP.
Whichever of those schools Allen picks, he will have to sit out the 2010-11 season and will not be eligible to play until 2011-12.
