Allensworth exploring all of his options


Darius Allensworth (Romoland, Calif./Heritage) is still committed to California, but the 5-foot-11, 174-pound cornerback is doing everything he can to make sure the Golden Bears are the best fit for him.

Allensworth took an official visit to Wisconsin in October and spent this past weekend at Washington State.

"It was great," Allensworth said of the trip to see the Cougars. "I'm glad I went. I had a good time and Coach [Mike] Leach is a cool dude. I'm definitely looking at Washington State and I loved it, actually. The players were cool and the program was really family-oriented. And Pullman was a cool city."

Allensworth is now scheduled to take an official visit to Cal on Jan. 25 and one to Texas Tech on Feb. 1.

"I'm still committed to Cal, but I want to make sure I'm making the right decision," he said.

A two-way standout in high school, all schools are recruiting Allensworth as a cornerback.
