Dorsey's Allison picks Wazzu
By Blair Angulo
Washington State has nabbed another underrated Southern California prospect.
On Monday night it was Dorsey linebacker Jeremiah Allison who committed to new Cougars coach Mike Leach. The Los Angeles Times reported it earlier, and Allison later confirmed the news through a text message. He also had offers from Arizona, Boise State and UCLA, among others.
Allison, who competed in the inaugural U.S Marine Corps Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl, was a fierce pass-rusher for Dorsey. He had 14 sacks for the Coliseum League champions last season, giving him a total of 34 over the last two seasons.
The 6-foot, 200-pound Allison projects as a hybrid end/linebacker at the next level. He joins Venice's Gabriel Marks and Teondray Caldwell, Culver City's Khalil Pettway and Alex Jackson, La Habra's Brett Bartolone and Gardena Serra's Kache Palacio on Washington State's list of commitments.
South East athlete Robert Lewis is also considering the Cougars.
Wednesday is the first day recruits can sign their letters of intent.
