Allensworth Connects with Cal Staff

Menifee (Calif.) Heritage cornerback/wide receiver, Darius Allensworth, took an official visit to California this past weekend, and it may have been his last.

Menifee (Calif.) Heritage cornerback/wide receiver, Darius Allensworth, took an official visit to California this past weekend, and it may have been his last.

"The visit this weekend to Cal was great," he tells FOX Sports NEXT. "I had a good time and I'm glad I took it. It made me a lot closer to the organization and the program.

"The connection I was able to make with the coaches and the beautiful weather out there, those were my main highlights on the trip."

The recruit was hosted by freshman defensive back, Jeffrey Coprich, and spent quite a bit of time with freshman wide receivers, Bryce Treggs and Darius Powe.

"I had a really good time with them," he shares. "We went out to a couple of parties and stuff, they introduced us to a lot more people on campus, and I think I just got a better understanding of the school and am more familiar with the place now."

Allensworth feels so connected to the Golden Bears, that he may be reconsidering an upcoming trip.

"I consider myself a Cal commit," he states. "I just took the visit to Washington State to see what they were about there, and I'm still debating if I'm going to take a Texas Tech visit this weekend; I'm still debating it."

His reasoning for the additional trips?

"I just want to make sure that I don't miss out on anything, but I don't really think that I am missing out on anything.

"When push comes to shove in a week, I'll still be a Bear."

The fact that Allensworth seems confident in his choice is not keeping other schools away.

"I have an in-home tomorrow with Coach (Randy) Stewart from Cal, I had an in-home on Sunday night, right when I got back, with Mike Leach, and I might have one with Texas Tech this week, but I'm not sure yet," the prospect reveals.

Allensworth enjoys the relationship he has developed with the Cougars, but come Signing Day, he expects to ink with the Golden Bears.

"[My relationship with Washington State,] it's really good. My best friend (Jamal Morrow) is committed there, so it's been very good, but I've been with Cal since August, so that's who I'm going to roll with.

"The new coaching staff seems like they're real good and they're going to do a great job. On a scale from one to ten, I would rate my commitment as a ten right now. My visit was great and I connected with the coaches really well."
