I had a chance to talk to star recruit Chris Martin tonight. I actually talked to him from the airport, as he waited to fly back to Denver. Martin said top-rated safety Keenan Allen and his half-brother, quarterback Zach Maynard, were indeed on campus for visits over the weekend. Martin, who already has taken his official visit to Cal, joined them on the visit anyway. He said the fact that Allen and Maynard were taking their visits was “partially” the reason he came out for the weekend.
Martin said he thought the visit went well but didn’t try to get into Allen’s head about where he is leaning. Martin did say he’s become friends with Allen as they were rooommates the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
Allen reportedly is considering Cal, Clemson and Alabama. He isn’t expected to announce his decision until Signing Day on Wednesday.
