Jim Larranaga's George Mason Patriots scored a verbal commitment from D.C. area native Bryon Allen.

The George Mason Patriots plucked a good one out of Oakdale (Conn.) St. Thomas More. D.C. area native Bryon Allen, a 6-foot-2 combo guard, committed to the Patriots after considering Mason, Siena, SMU and Oregon. Two years ago, he committed early to West Virginia.

“I visited George Mason two weeks ago,” Allen told “I was supposed to visit SMU this past weekend and I decided I was comfortable with my decision and I chose George Mason.

“The thing about George Mason was playing with Isaiah Tate, Rashad Whack and some of the guys I played against in high school … I enjoyed the team. It’s one big family and we can do damage.”

Allen averaged 19 points and seven assists for STM. He transferred into Jere Quinn’s program following stints at DeMatha and Oak Hill. Allen said the Patriots sold him on their plan for his abilities.

“They see me being a point guard. I think I’m ready for that. This whole year I played point guard at St. Thomas More and that was the first time I played the whole year there. I think I did pretty good at it.”
