Three-star Dorsey LB sets WSU official

WITH A POSSIBLE FOUR more official visits remaining, three-star linebacker Jeremiah Allison out of Dorsey High in Los Angeles discusses the schools he is planning on visiting in the next couple weeks – including Washington State.

"I will mostly likely take officials to Stanford, UCLA and Washington State. I am working on finalizing all the details for those visits this week," said Allison. "I recently confirmed the dates for my official to Washington State. I am going out there on January 13th."

Ever since Allison received an offer from Washington State on December 17, he has been keeping in contact with the Cougars' outside receivers coach, Dennis Simmons.

"It seems at though they are really stepping up their program, as a result of their new coaching staff," said Allison.

Allison is coming off a strong showing in the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl last week. Allison has received 11 scholarship offers, but is still waiting for one in particular to come his way.

"I am still waiting to hear back from Stanford," said Allison. "Stanford has always been my dream school, because they have the winning combination, education and athletics."

"I am working on my application and just waiting to receive my test scores," said Allison.

Allison is not only an animal on the field, but in the classroom as well. Allison boosts an impressive 4.25 GPA, and has broken several records at Dorsey because of his inexhaustible pass rushing abilities. Allison had 23 sacks for the Dons this year, and had 63 sacks over the course of his career.

As a dedicated student-athlete Allison has only had time to take one official visit so far this season. Allison took his first official in December to checkout San Jose State.

UCLA is another program that is high on Allison's list. Having already received an offer from the Bruins back when Rick Neuheisel was calling the shots, Allison is looking forward to learning more about the new direction of their program.

"I really like the Bruins new head coach, Jim Mora," said Allison. "I am looking forward to my official out there and for a chance to meet the rest of the staff and to learn more about the changes in their program."
