Allensworth solid to Arizona

Darius Allensworth committed to Arizona and then saw more offers roll in. Read on to see where he now stands with the Wildcats, where he will visit, and more.

Darius Allensworth committed to play football for the Arizona Wildcats in early April. After his decision, offers kept rolling in, making his commitment harder to keep.

Recently, UCLA and Wisconsin have been trying to pull him away from Arizona, both having offered scholarships. Allensworth still has communication with the other coaches, but says that he is solid with his commitment to the Wildcats.

"I'm still solid to Arizona," he said. "I like them a lot. I talk to Coach Anae pretty often and I'm really happy with my position right now."

Allensworth, a 5-foot-11, 180-pound cornerback from Menifee (Calif.) Heritage High School, has kept an eye on other things surrounding Arizona as well. He has followed the Wildcats recruiting and is pleased with Arizona's success so far.

"I'm excited to see how it pans out," Allensworth said. "The new recruits certainly help. I mean, it really helps with knowing who I'm going to be playing next to."

Recently, Allensworth was excited to hear about Derek Babiash's choice to play for Arizona. He tweeted his jubilation about the recruiting class after hearing about the commitment.

"I was really excited about his commitment," Allensworth said. "It surprised me, but I know that he's a really good player, so it will be great to play next to him."

Allensworth has also had some communication with a few of his fellow Arizona commits, talking often with Devin Holiday and Zachary Green.

"We just talk about football and about the new stuff that is happening with Arizona," he said. "We talk about the big things that we are going to build there.

"I haven't talked to a lot of the other guys, but I definitely think that we are all going to get to know each other over the next four years."

For now, Allensworth plans on working out with his high school team and preparing for the upcoming season.

"I just want to do some weight lifting and conditioning," Allensworth said. "I'm just trying to relax for a while because I want to go out there and finish my high school career strong."

Allensworth plans on visiting the Arizona campus soon, but does not have a date set yet.

"I'm going to go back down to Tucson for my official," he said. "I don't know when yet, but it should be my only visit."
