Jeremiah Allison could be the complete package with a 4.25 grade-point average and phenomenal statistics on the field so it's surprising the Los Angeles Dorsey linebacker only has an offer from UCLA so far.
That could change soon because Allison, a 6-foot-1, 205-pound outside linebacker who's included in the Rivals 250 to watch, was one of the better prospects on the 1925 All-Stars that finished in second place in last weekend's Badger Sports Elite 7-on-7 tournament in Las Vegas.
Allison is grateful to UCLA for offering first and he said the Bruins are definitely going to be strongly considered throughout his recruitment.

"Right now, my only offer is from UCLA and I'm thankful for receiving it," Allison said. "They reached out to me and I'm thankful for them.
"They were the first to get the ball rolling. Of course, that's a big blessing and the day after they offered other schools started calling me.
"Right now, I'm just waiting it out and I want to focus on this year's football season. I'll cross that bridge when I have to. Their academics are great, I love their academics and they have great football tradition at UCLA".
Arizona State, USC, Stanford, Washington, Arizona, Princeton and Yale are some other schools involved with Allison, who finished with 88 tackles including 20 sacks, two fumble recoveries and an interception in his junior season.
Academics will be a serious factor when Allison is figuring out his recruitment because he wants to study anesthesiology. With such good grades in high school, Allison should have lots of options ahead.
"When I went into high school I wanted to go into law but then I started loving science so now I want to go into anesthesiology," Allison said. "My grades are really good."
