Allensworth remains committed

Darius Allensworth recently visited Wisconsin. Is he still a Wildcat? What did he think of the visit? Read on for those answers and more.

The Darius Allensworth saga continued this past week when the 2013 Arizona Wildcat commit took an unofficial visit to Wisconsin.

He returned home still committed to Arizona, but the trip did give him something to think about in terms of his recruitment.

"My trip to Wisconsin was nice and I'm glad I made it out there," Allensworth said. "I checked out the football facilities. I checked out the campus and some more parts of the city"

Allensworth came away from his trip impressed with the coaches and their efforts to sway his commitment.

"They just showed me a good time and made me feel wanted," he said. "It was really what any recruit would want."

The Badger coaching staff didn't make it easy on the high school senior, pitching him many different things over the weekend.

"Their biggest pitch was just playing big time football," Allensworth said. "Wisconsin plays in the Big Ten and they were just comparing conferences and it was a big pitch."

The cornerback verbally committed to play football for Arizona in April, becoming one of the first 2013 commits for new Wildcat coach Rich Rodriguez. Even though he enjoyed his visit to Madison, Allensworth is still planning on playing his college ball in Tucson.

"I'm still committed to Arizona," he said. "This just helped me get closer to the end of this process. I'm just going to visit California and go from there.

"Right now, I know that (Wisconsin) is a great place, but I'm not sure it's as great as Arizona is. For me, I just want to clear out the back of my mind and just make sure that's what I want. Erase all doubts."

Allensworth still wants to take an unofficial visit to California, which he plans on doing in the next few weeks. Currently, he says that California and Wisconsin are both about even in his eyes.

"They are at an equal tie," he said. "They are both even at number two, but I'm still with Arizona."
