WATCH: Texas C Jarrett Allen adds to highlight reel with coast-to-coast dunk

Posted February 11th, 2017


Texas freshman Jarrett Allen is steadily rising up NBA Draft boards. It’s easy to see why with plays like the one he made during the first half of Saturday’s game at Oklahoma State.

The 6-foot-11 center jumped a passing lane for a steal, then beat three Cowboys to the other end before taking off just inside the free-throw line for a rim-rattling slam. Watch below.

Seconds later, Allen followed that play up with another dunk — his third of the first half. This is the player that many expected to see when Allen signed with the Longhorns last summer.

For good measure, here is another highlight play by Allen from the opening minutes. He had 12 points and 6 rebounds at halftime, but the Longhorns trailed 38-33.
