Jeremiah Allison picked up an offer from Arizona about a month ago and that's been the latest in his recruitment so it's given the Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey outside linebacker some time to research the Wildcats.
The 6-foot-1, 210-pound three-star prospect likes what he has learned so far.
"They came up to the school and I was talking to them during the school year and then my coach told me to call them and they offered," Allison said.

"There is interest there and they're close to home so of course that's good as well. They've been in bowl games and compete at a high level so that's what I'm looking for. That's a really good school."
Allison, rated No. 45 at outside linebacker in the 2012 class and No. 56 in the California state rankings by Rivals.com, is quick to say he's still open in his recruitment and doesn't have any favorites at this point.
With offers from Arizona, Boise State, Colorado State, Duke, Nevada, SMU, UCLA and Yake, Allsion has some thinking to do over the next few months as he puts together his official visit list.
"I'm still open," Allison said. "I haven't figured out visits because I'm focused on the season. I'm going to get into the recruiting process probably once the season kicks off.
"I plan on taking all five but if I attend a school and it catches my eye and they have a family feel I may commit then."
Even more schools are showing interest in Allison, who shined this spring and summer at numerous camps and with the 1925 All-Stars 7-on-7 team.
The Dorsey standout who finished with 88 tackles, 20 sacks and two fumble recoveries in his junior season said South Florida, Miami and Purdue have started to become involved in his recruitment.
