Iowa State has done it again with a big-time transfer.
First it was Royce White, now it’s former Michigan State guard Chris Allen.
“Yup, done,” a source said.
Allen, a 6-foot-3 shooting guard, averaged 8.2 points and shot nearly 40 percent from three-point range last season. Head coach Tom Izzo announced in early August that Allen would not be returning to the Spartans.
Allen chose the Cyclones over interest from Connecticut, Notre Dame, St. John's, UTEP, South Florida, Baylor and others. He will sit out this season, and will be eligible to play in 2011-12.
