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.
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....
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
