SEATTLE – On the heels of a second consecutive 18+ win season, Seattle University men's basketball Head Coach Jim Hayford has announced the signing of incoming freshmen forwards Dovy Pinskus and Trevon Allfrey, and graduate transfer center Jordan Dallas, who will bolster the Redhawk roster beginning in 2019-20.
Pinskus comes to Seattle U from Sunrise Christian Academy and De La Salle High School in Chicago. The 6-7, 200-pound forward averaged 13 points, five rebounds and two assists per game while shooting 40 percent from three this past season at Sunrise Christian Academy. In 2017-18, during his senior year at De La Salle HS, he put up 15 points, eight rebounds and three assists per game, on his way to being named the team's Offensive Player of the Year and leading the Meteors to a Regional Championship.
"Dovy is a talented, versatile player with an outstanding work ethic," said Hayford. "We are excited to help him develop and reach the high goals he has set for himself as a student and basketball player."
Pinskus, a native of Lithuania, was De La Salle's Most Improved Player as a sophomore and earned the team's Pride, Hustle, Desire award as a junior. He was also a two-time "A" Honor Roll honoree and two-time "B" Honor Roll honoree.
Allfrey is a 6-7, 225-pound forward hailing from Copper Hills High School in West Jordan, Utah. As a senior, he averaged 19 points, nine rebounds, four blocks and two assists per game, leading the Grizzlies to a third consecutive Region III Championship.
"Trevon is a very skilled basketball player who has the attributes that we value most," Hayford said. "I believe he will emerge into a dominant big man in the WAC as his body matures and develops."
Allfrey packed on the awards over the past two seasons, most recently earning All-Utah Second Team selection by USA Today. He was also a first-team All-State selection in 2018 and 2019, the Desert News Player of the Year in 2018, made the All-Tribune team in 2018 and was the Region III MVP in 2018 and 2019. Allfrey also earned academic all-region honors for his performance on the court and in the classroom.
Rounding out the signees is Dallas, a 6-10, 220-pound center who joins the Redhawks for his final season of collegiate eligibility after earning his bachelor's degree at Weber State.
"Jordan is a great shooter for his size," said Hayford. "He brings experience and confidence from his time under great coaching at Weber State. He is now injury free and his best basketball is ahead of him."
Dallas redshirted his true freshman season at Weber State in 2015-16 before playing in a limited role for the next three seasons. In total, he appeared in 55 career games in his three seasons at Weber State, totaling 117 points and 94 rebounds and shooting 56 percent from the field.
Dallas prepped at Long Beach Poly High School in Long Beach, Calif., where he helped lead the Jackrabbits to a CIF Championship as a junior and a 26-5 overall record as a senior.
