Fans of the Boston Celtics in the state of Rhode Island might be surprised to see Ray Allen has committed to play for the University of Rhode Island as a preferred walk-on player per the Hartford Courant’s Kels Dayton, but their eyes are not playing tricks on them.

Allen’s son, Walter Ray Allen III, has committed to playing basketball at URI as a walk-on. The eldest son of the Celtics champ and former University of Connecticut standout is a 6’1 shooting guard who was coached by the elder Allen at Gulliver Prep in Miami, Florida.

The younger Jesus Shuttleworth was not heavily recruited by top college basketball programs, but the hope is that Allen develops his game enough at URI to raise his stock as a player.
