LC Men’s Basketball Adds Size to Roster
June 25, 2013
Lincoln, IL – Lincoln College men’s basketball program has signed their fourth member of the incoming freshman class. This time around they are adding some much needed size. The basketball staff has welcomed in Oak Park River Forest High School big man Virgil Allen Jr. Allen comes to the Lynx standing at 6’10” and 265 pounds. Allen comes from a very rich tradition basketball program at OPRF, which produced current NBA Star Iman Shumpert of the NY Knicks.
Lincoln College head coach Pat Lepper said “Virgil has the tools to be a great big man in our league. He brings great size, which we lacked last year, and has good mobility to get up and down the court. Virgil has great skills and touch around the basket. We are looking forward to Virgil being a force in the paint for us over the next 2 years.”
While at Oak Park River Forest, Allen averaged just over 10 PPG and was good for about 8 RPG. Virgil Allen Jr. is #42 in picture below.
