2026 Top 50 prospect Latrell Allmond talks Louisville offer and 3SSB performance

HOOVER, Ala. – 2026 Top 50 Prospect Latrell Allmond was a standout performer over the last three days of the adidas 3SSB near Birmingham. The 6-foot-8, 205-pound center from Richmond, Virginia, who received an offer from Louisville last month, proved to be much more than an interior presence throughout the event.

“It was great to be back here with my teammates competing at a really high level,” Allmond told Cardinal Authority.

In helping Team Loaded win all five of their games, Allmond was a physical presence in the paint, but also a threat to score from deep. He provided several highlight-reel dunks and a consistent jumper that will continue to push his four-star stock even higher.

His goal at 3SSB was a success.

“My versatility, of course,” he said. “A lot of people look at me as a go-back-to-the-basket type of player, but I’m much more than that.”

His stat line from the weekend highlights his ability to make an impact on both ends of the court, finishing with an average of 10 points, 7.0 rebounds and 2.4 blocks per game.

“That’s me. I play with emotion and heart,” Allmond said. “I compete at a very high level and defense is my thing. I pride myself on being good on the defensive side. It definitely gives me some emotion, that’s for sure.”

Louisville joined an already impressive group of schools to offer on April 24.

“It was great to get an offer from Louisville,” Allmond said. “This is a rebuilding program. I called Coach Carr who was in Charleston. So that connection is there and just being able to get an offer from a program that’s trying to rebuild and you know, to create something new and bring it back to what it was.”

Allmond said he hopes to visit Louisville and others “this summer.”

In addition to the Cardinals, Allmond has the same from Florida State, Georgetown, LSU, Mississippi State, NC State, Ole Miss, Providence, Rutgers, Tennessee, Texas A&M and VCU.

When we talk to college coaches, several things are often mentioned as strengths.

“My motor, of course, and my ability to stretch the floor,” he said.

247Sports ranks Allmond as the No. 34 prospect and No. 4 center nationally. He also lists as the No. 3 player in Virginia for the 2026 class. The industry-generated 247Sports Composite also has Allmond as the No. 3 center in 2026.

Allmond plays for John Marshall High School, helping the team win a Virginia state title last season.
