Arizona State offered Jamar Allah after the coaching staff heard he did well at a passing tournament there and now the Sun Devils have moved to the top of the list for the 6-foot-1, 180-pound cornerback from Phoenix (Ariz.) North Canyon.
"We went to a passing tournament at ASU and I did really well," Allah said. "I went against the No. 29 wide receiver in the nation (Javon Williams) and he didn't catch a ball against me so they were happy about that."
Wyoming and Montana have also offered Allah, who had 54 tackles and an interception in his junior season, but Arizona State is clearly the favorite even though the local prospect said he plans to wait his recruitment out a little longer before making a commitment.

The Sun Devils are definitely in good shape though and will be the team to beat moving forward since he likes the campus and a host of other things about Arizona State.
"Right now they're the leader," Allah said. "I took my unofficial visit (Wednesday) and I see a lot of good things and I can see myself going there but I'm just going to wait to see what happens.
"I'm going to hold off a little longer. Right now I feel like that's the best school for me. They showed me around the facility, I like their new uniforms and I like that everyone is like a family, like a unit. The counselors are all together and the teachers and everybody. I can see myself fitting in there."
Arizona and Boise State are two other schools listed by Allah, who said he's still not hearing from many programs but hopes that changes now that he has a Pac-10 offer.
That could be one of the major reasons why he's going to hold off on a commitment so he can see which other teams get involved.
"Right now I'm still under the radar so I don't know what's going to come," he said.
