    Here is a link to his recruiting thread but that only started 10 hours ago. Teddy will have to sit out next year.

      This can act as the thread for the player, like we have for AM, MM, and such.

      Teddy can score big time, but has attitude and some lazy defensive issues. Needs to grow up. If 3G can reel in that stuff and get him to buy in on the defensive side, he has the talent to be a 1st team AAC guy.

          " Teddy Allen and Bob Huggins seemed like a marriage destined to fail. The freshman from Boys Town was volatile. The coach at West Virginia was, too.

          When Allen busted out in early January with 20 points against Trae Young and Oklahoma, he showed he could play at the highest level. But Huggins benched him one week later. That’s where Allen spent most of the winter. Teddy Bear and Huggy Bear couldn't get along.

          So it was no surprise Thursday when Allen announced his transfer intentions. Does he come back to Nebraska? Not likely. Neither the Huskers nor Bluejays showed much interest two years ago.

          I could see Allen at Iowa State, which recruited him hard. Wherever he lands, he needs to find the right fit. A coaching staff that inspires discipline and maturity."

              That picture of the 5 Shocks plus Baker not shown, helps me remember and understand why we ended up in the Final 4 that Season.

              Terry Allen is a Man now and Kerry R. will direct him to get even stronger and Coach Marshall will guide him to improve as a player and a Man.

              Shocker basketball will forever be my favorite team in all of sports.

                Go watch the YouTube clips of him against BigXII competition.

                That's a man.

                    Doesn't like to play D. Doesn't like a coach that rides his butt. Getting benched after a good game says a lot about his ability to be coached. Looks like a high risk/high reward type of player.

                    That's the most politically correct way I can express my attitude about recruiting this guy.

                      Let's hope that he learned from that.

                    Mountaineer fan here. Most of us were sad to see Teddy go because he does have huge upside. He has an absolute knack for scoring. His jump shot needs a ton of work so his game was really limited mid range and in. He's not the most athletic so he seemed to struggle against teams that had athletic defenders that were bigger/stronger than him (see all the WVU games vs Baylor last year) Teddy has never seen a shot he doesn't like so that sometimes got him in trouble with the staff.

                    His biggest issue at WVU was his attitude. Hopefully another college/coach can take that out of him. There were a couple pretty notable incidents last year....he physically pushed a coach and told him to suck his **** during practice. There was also another issue where he slapped away the hand of the same coach on the bench during a game. There have also been rumors that he has some personal issues going on in Morgantown that were also distractions.

                    Hopefully the kid can get his head on straight, because the potential for him to be the leading scorer is there....

                      Yikes. Hopefully a redshirt year will help him mature a bit. His knack for finishing at the rim is pretty impressive despite not being the most athletic guy. How was he defensively?

                      Most kids are smart enough to realize when you get a second chance... You don't f@ck it up... So we will see if he is smart enough to realize this otherwise the rabbithole will just get deeper for him in life
