Visit crucial for Allison

At the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl in December, Jeremiah Allison said he was still undecided about his recruitment and where he would play his college football.
That started to change a few weeks later when the three-star outside linebacker from Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey visited Washington State.
After considering things for a couple weeks and taking some other visits, Allison committed to the Cougars on Monday night.

"I liked how they recruited me," Allison said.
"I liked that they came after me really strong and showed me a lot of interest. My visit up there went really well and I also think coach Mike Leach is going to do a lot of great things there."
In his senior season, Allison finished with 56 tackles and 14 sacks and also listed offers from Arizona, Boise State, Colorado State, Duke, Nevada, San Jose State, SMU, UCLA and some others.
Rivals.com rates Allison as the No. 53 outside linebacker in the 2012 class and No. 61 in the California state rankings.
Leach and his new staff at Washington State continue to raid California talent.
Allison, a 6-foot-1, 210-pound prospect, is the 14th prospect from the state of California to commit to the Cougars this recruiting cycle.
That list includes four-star wide receiver Gabriel Marks and three-stars Robert Lewis and Alex Jackson. Marks and Lewis had been previously committed to SMU.
