LSU transfer Jordan Allen commits to the Cats

Crystal LoGiudice-USA TODAY Sports

This has been a huge recruiting week for the Arizona Wildcats as they have just picked up their 3rd commitment since Sunday. The first coming from 4-star OT Keenan Walker, followed by 3-star OL Alex Kosinski and now LSU DE transfer Jordan Allen,  who will be eligible immediately.

If you missed the run down on Keenan Walker’s commitment, check it out here. 3-star Alex Kosinski brings more size to the OL, which is always welcome, coming in at 6-5 290 pounds. Kosinski’s only other offer came from Air Force however he took an unofficial visit to ASU during their spring game… guess it wasn’t that great. But let’s all give a a big tip of the cap to Arizona Director of On-Campus Recruiting, Matt Dudek.

The latest piece, Jordan Allen, gives Arizona much needed depth and some SEC size on the defensive line as he measures in at 6-6 260 pounds. Allen suffered an ACL tear which kept him out for most of his junior season but came back his senior year to play in all 13 games last season, recording 16 tackles and two sacks, one seen here. As a 5th year senior, Allen had to choose a graduate program that was not offered by LSU in order to be eligible immediately.

The addition of Jordan Allen really shows how much Arizona is flourishing under Coach Rodriguez. The Wildcats will have transfers from LSU (2), Texas (2), USC (1) and Notre Dame (1), all immediately eligible for the 2014 season.
