Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey linebacker Jeremiah Allison has had numerous coaches stop by the school this week, and in the weeks since coaches started hitting the road.

Thursday's visit was from USC and Kennedy Pola and Boise State and Marcel Yates and Allison added his third offer, from the Broncos.

"It seems like everytime I go into Coach (Paul) Knox's office (the Dorsey head coach), there is another coach there wanting to see me and my teammates," said Allison. "It's been a lot of fun."

Allison also had coaches from Cal and from UCLA by earlier in the week.

"Coach (Mike) Johnson came by on Wednesday from UCLA and Cal's coach came by on Tuesday," said Allison. "Next week, Stanford, USC and Oregon are supposed to be coming by."

Allison will also spend next weekend in the Bay Area.

"Me and Justin Johnson are going to the Stanford Nike Camp and we will be going to visit Stanford on Saturday before the camp," said Allison. "We might also go to Cal."

Allison has been a defensive end in his career for Dorsey, recording 20 sacks the last two years, but he's keenly aware that linebacker is where his future is.

"I'm 212 pounds now and 6-1, but I know coaches do want to see me at linebacker, and at their camps," said Allison. "Due to the fact that my highlight film is almost all at defensive end, they want to see me in front of more people."

Which is fine by Allison, who's in no rush to make a decision.

"I don't have a favorite or a top list and I want to be able to see all of my options," said Allison.

In addition to the Stanford Nike Camp, Allison will play with Team 1925 at the AIGA 7on7 in late May and the BMOC 7on7 in June. Allison was one of the standouts at the Badger Elite 7on7 in Las Vegas in March.
