Allensworth opens back up

Darius Allensworth did not feel comfortable staying committed to Arizona and looking at other schools so the Romoland (Calif.) Heritage cornerback decided to back off his pledge to the Wildcats.
The 5-foot-11, 175-pound prospect has pretty much said since the time he committed to Arizona he would be open to other programs and now he's decided to completely open back up.
"I just didn't think it was fair to be committed to Arizona and still be looking at schools," Allensworth said. "I didn't want to put them on the backburner. I decided to de-commit and weigh out all my options.
"They most definitely do stay in the running. They were the first ones to give me an opportunity so they're right there. I don't have a set order right now. They're all about equal."
The three-star prospect who looked good at the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge in Atlanta this summer is taking his second unofficial visit to Cal this weekend. This time he's bringing some company.
"I went up there, my dad didn't go up there, so he wants to go up and see how it is," Allensworth said. "That's why I'm going up there again."
Rated as the No. 43 cornerback in the 2013 class, Allensworth also recently returned from an unofficial visit to Wisconsin.
Colorado, UCLA and Washington State have also offered.
His final decision could come soon. Allensworth said the plan is to make his commitment on Aug. 16 since he would prefer to finalize things before his senior season starts.
