Allensworth keeps eyes open

Even though Darius Allensworth remains committed to Cal things are still interesting in his recruitment.
The Romoland (Calif.) Heritage four-star cornerback, a former Arizona pledge, recently returned from an official visit to Wisconsin and UCLA continues to pursue him.
Both programs have something that appeals to Allensworth, who said the Badgers and Bruins are still being considered and that other official visits are also possible.
"I just got back from my Wisconsin visit last week and I'm really waiting it out right now," Allensworth said. "It's a great school, a great atmosphere so we'll see how it goes. Right now I'm committed to Cal obviously so we'll see how it goes with Cal.
"I was at [the UCLA] game a couple weeks ago against Arizona. I'm probably going to another game, I might take an official there, so UCLA is still coming after me pretty good."
The hesitation with Cal, it seems, is that Allensworth is concerned about a possible coaching change with Jeff Tedford. The Golden Bears are 3-8 and close out the season this weekend at Oregon State.
Allensworth, who's been committed to Cal since mid-August, said he is keeping a close watch on the coaching situation there and it could play a role in his future decisions.
"I am watching it," Allensworth said. "My dad and I have talked about it. I'm keeping an eye on it so we'll see where that goes."
In the meantime, the four-star is at least considering other trips. He could visit Washington State with teammate Jamal Morrow, who's committed there, or possibly hear from new teams that want to get involved as signing day gets closer.
"I haven't scheduled any trips but I'm pretty sure I might take some," Allensworth said. "I'm just going to have to talk it over with my dad."
Rivals.com rates the Romoland Heritage standout as the No. 25 cornerback and the No. 239 prospect in the 2013 class.
