Four-star sets first visit

Four-star offensive lineman Allen Carroll (6-4, 285) from Oakland (Calif.) McClymonds lived up to his reputation as one of the best offensive line prospects on the west coast.
"Allen has been a big part of the reason we are playing in the Silver Bowl (City Championship) this Friday," McClymonds coach Eric Culberson said. "We have run behind him all year and have a lot of our big runs behind him.
"Allen has kind of put his recruitment on the side until after the season," Culberson said. "He will be taking a visit to Washington the first week of December.
"Allen doesn't have any other visits set," Culberson said. "We were waiting until he receives his test scores back. He just took them last month.
Besides Washington; UCLA and Arizona were also favorites of Carroll's.
"With UCLA we are waiting to see what happens with the coaching situation," Culberson said. "He wants to make sure the guys who are recruiting him will still be there at UCLA.
"Allen kind of put Arizona on hold until their coaching situation was sorted out," Culberson said. ""Now that Arizona looks like they have straightened out their coaching situation, Allen will be interested in them again."
"Washington State and Oregon have picked up their interest in Allen," Culberson said. "Oregon's coach Nick Aliotti has been by the school to talk to Allen.
Whoever lands Carroll will be getting a versatile player who can play any position along the offensive line.
As a junior, Carroll earned first-team all-league and first-team all-city. ranks Carroll as the nation's No. 19 offensive guard prospect for the class of 2008 and he made the California Top 100 landing as the Golden State's No. 35 prospect at any position.
