Football: CB Allensworth commits to Bears

Cornerback Darius Allensworth, a three-star prospect from Heritage HS in Menifee (Riverside County), has committed to the Bears, according to both Scout.com and Rivals.com.

“I love everything about the school and the biggest thing was, if you took football away, I would still want to go to Cal,” Allensworth told Scout.com. Having previously committed to Arizona, he said this is his “final decision.”

At 5-foot-11, 175 pounds, Allensworth is rated as the nation’s No. 43 cornerback prospect by Rivals.

Besides Arizona, he also had offers from Wisconsin, UCLA, Utah, Colorado and Washington State.

Allensworth is the 10th prospect to commit to Cal. Commitments are not binding until national letter-of-intent signing day, Feb. 6, 2013.
