Allen likely to visit

Josh Allen is one of the top junior college players in the country. Read on to see which schools he is focusing on and more.

Long Beach City College pass rusher Josh Allen is a player that the UA staff believes can make an immediate impact at Arizona.

“Arizona, ASU, Washington and Boise State and the LA schools are some of the places that I’m going to look at,” Allen said. “I can get to USC and UCLA whenever I want. I like both places. The other visits I will have to set up.”

The visits will play a crucial role in the 6-foot-4, 260-pound lineman's decision making process.

“To me, a lot is going to be about location and talking to the players," Allen said. "I mean, seriously, coaches are going to tell me whatever they want.

"I put a lot of stock into what the players feel and how the every day atmosphere plays out. I can gather a lot of what I need from that.

“I also want to see what a practice and work out routine looks like. How serious is everybody about getting better? Is there a good camaraderie?”

Allen envisions making a quick transition to the next level.

“All the schools recruiting me think I can come in and make a pretty quick impact," he said. "I just need to find that scheme that is good for me.

"Since I graduated high school, I’ve been able to get better each year and a big reason for that is I’m in a good scheme right now where we chase down the football.

“I really want to be able to build on what I’ve been able to do since I entered junior college. I’ve learned so much and I can feel myself getting better all the time. I can only imagine what Division I will be like.”
