PER TWITTER, FRAN MCCAFFERY HAS OFFERED 2014 SG PEYTON ALLEN. Allen is a 6'5" shooting guard from Chatham, Illinois. Allen is part of the Southwestern Illinois Jets AAU program that visited Iowa City as a group earlier this month. Per UM Hoops,
Peyton Allen is a deadly shooter who's range already earned him an additional scholarship offer this weekend, this one from Iowa. Allen has already had multiple games scoring over 20 points in the tournament and led the Jets to a perfect record in pool play.
Both Allen and Cliff Alexander were named to the Chicago Tribune's all-state special mention team as sophomores. Allen could potentially be a Top 100 player when the rankings for the 2014 class are released next year. In addition to Iowa he holds offers from Bradley and Oklahoma State. Several Big Ten schools inlcuding Michigan and Purdue are interested.

MCCAFFERY WAS IN MINNEAPOLIS TAKING IN THE NIKE EYBL. He, or members of his staff, also took in the Nike Spring Showdown in Merrillville, Indiana. It's the early evaluation period and recruiting for hoops is in full swing. In Indiana were the Southwestern Illinois Jets team with Peyton Allen. Also there, Aaron Brennan, a 2014 forward recruit with an Iowa offer.
BUT, MCCAFFERY MIGHT NOT BE FINISHED WITH HIS 2012 CLASS. There's this tweet from Pat Harty,
Iowa coach Fran McCaffery reportedly is interested in 6-5 Ohio de-commit Caris LeVert, who signed in Nov., but now is looking elsewhere.— Pat Harty (@PatHarty) April 23, 2012
Michigan is also showing interest in LeVert. He originally committed to John Groce at Ohio but was allowed out of his LOI after the coaching move. He is a Rivals three-star recruit that may be the wing McCaffery is looking for.
