Allen looking closer at recruitment

Dejon Allen has been committed to Arizona State since late May and has not wavered at all in that decision but the Compton (Calif.) Dominguez offensive guard visited UCLA this past weekend and now it has him thinking.
The 6-foot-3, 265-pound prospect said he has not backed off his commitment to the Sun Devils but that his pledge is not as strong as it once was and he's still considering UCLA, Washington, Oregon and Arizona in his recruitment.
"Right about now the strong commit has turned into medium but I'm still committed until my heart changes to a different direction," Allen said.
Rated No. 33 at offensive guard in the 2012 class and No. 86 in the California state rankings, Allen said in May that he felt Arizona State was the best spot for him especially after visiting in the spring.
Other schools were recruiting him hard after his junior season - and Allen also performed well at camps during the off-season - but after visiting Tempe he said the environment was what he was looking for and he decided to end things by making his pledge.
That commitment still stands but after this past weekend seeing UCLA upset Arizona State and his considerations on other schools, Allen said he will continue to think about his recruitment up to National Signing Day.
He saw a great game Saturday at the Rose Bowl and Allen said the Bruins definitely impressed him by getting the win.
"It was a pretty good experience," Allen said. "It was a great game, both teams played well and gave their all but in the end UCLA came away with the win but my Sun Devils gave their all, too."
In total, Allen lists offers from Arizona State, Boise State, New Mexico, Northern Arizona, San Diego State, UCLA, Utah and Washington.
