Jeremiah Allison is still sitting back and not rushing his recruitment but the Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey is at least offering a small glimpse into his decision-making process.
The three-star outside linebacker said he's focused on the season especially for the next three weeks when Dorsey plays Los Angeles Garfield, Redlands East Valley and Mission Hills Alemany.
On the weekend of Oct. 7, Allison said he could take his first official visit but isn't sure where yet.
Arizona, Boise State and Duke are the three programs that are in contention to land Allison's first visit and he's expected to sit down with his coaches sometime this week to figure it out.
"There's nothing new as far as offers," Allison said. "I'm still talking to the same colleges. I plan on taking a visit in the sixth week. I talked to coach (Paul) Knox about it. I'm going to take a visit that week and I'm going to plan it all out probably this week and then I'll take it on the bye week.
"I'm still the same right now. It's because I'm not really sweating it yet. We have three tough games and we just started school and I'm trying to get the valedictorian honors this year so I'm really focused on school and making sure all that is situated.
"We have Garfield, Redlands East Valley and Alemany so I'm trying to get the team focused."
In total, Arizona, Boise State, Colorado State, Duke, Nevada, SMU, UCLA, Yale and UC Davis have offered Allison, a 6-foot-1, 210-pound prospect who's rated No. 46 at outside linebacker in the 2012 class and No. 56 in the California state rankings by Rivals.com.
As for a timetable when he will make his decision, Allison doesn't necessarily have one but doesn't want to rush anything either. If he takes a visit and loves what he sees then the Dorsey standout could make his commitment.
There is no set timetable though since Allison said he's mainly concerned about his senior season and then recruiting will take care of itself later.
"When the time is right I'll make the decision," Allison said.
"Right now I'm just going along with the ride but you never know. Being a 17-year-old, if you feel accepted and wanted by that school then maybe it's an easy decision."
