Great visit for Allensworth

Darius Allensworth had an outstanding visit to Cal this past weekend and the Romoland (Calif.) Heritage four-star cornerback said his commitment is pretty much locked in.
The 5-foot-11, 175-pound recruit said he's still considering a trip to Texas Tech this weekend but all indications are that the Golden Bears look really good for the Southern California standout.
"It was great," Allensworth said. "It was a good trip. I'm glad I went and it kind of reassured me why I committed to Cal in August.
"The people were great, there is a great opportunity to get a degree from Berkeley and outside of campus there is life in San Francisco and Oakland and you can go watch the Golden State Warriors play. It is just a great area to be in and I'm glad I committed there."
Allensworth, a former Arizona commit, said all the recruits really got along during the visit and he just had an excellent time in Berkeley.
The four-star took a trip recently to Washington State - his teammate Jamal Morrow is going there - but more and more it seems Cal will win out for his signature.
"I'm debating whether to take Texas Tech or not," Allensworth said. "It's really close to being locked.
"It was a good trip. All the players connected so it was really good."
Some other committed prospects like Tyler Foreman and some who haven't made a pledge yet also visited Cal last weekend but Allensworth said he wasn't too pushy with them.
He knows personally how difficult the recruiting process can be so Allensworth wanted everyone to just enjoy themselves and then make their own decisions.
"I kind of say what I can say but I know the process is stressful going through it myself," Allensworth said. "I kind of backed off when I was up there and let them have fun. I wanted them to experience it for themselves."
