Houston corner makes switch to Kansas

The Kansas Jayhawks have been on a serious recruiting hot streak in recent weeks, and that trend continued Monday, when Head Coach Charlie Weis and his staff reeled in Houston (TX) Taylor High cornerback Greg Allen.

A week ago, Houston (TX) Taylor High School cornerback Greg Allen was committed to the Utah Utes.

Monday, he's a Kansas Jayhawk.

Allen made the decision after conferring with family members, following an official visit to Lawrence, Kan. that took place last weekend.

"My dad and my sister, they had a list of things, and Kansas won that," the 6-foot, 170-pound prospect said. "And it's a place where my family can see me play."

While on his visit, Allen had a chance to spend some time with new Jayhawks defensive coordinator Dave Campo, who will also coach defensive backs - and he came away impressed.

"He's a good coach," he explained. "He's wants to teach me the game of football, and about becoming a better young man."

"They want to turn it around there and get the program started," Allen added.

Allen chose Kansas over offers from Utah and Ole Miss.
