GREENSBORO, N.C. - Welcome to the new Atlantic Coast Conference…
Things change in recruiting. Coaches get fired, players change their mind. Nothing is official until the student-athlete signs on the dotted line on that first Wednesday in February.After committing and decommitting, Phoenix (Az.) North Canyon corner Jamar Allah has made his commitment official, signing with the University of Arizona this morning.Allah comments, "I love the staff, it is like a big family. I like that the staff has been together for a long time, going back to West Virginia, they were just upfront about everything. I feel like at Arizona it is like a big brotherhood. There will be no discipline issues."Allah also is a big fan of Wildcat DB coach David Lockwood. He says, "Coach Lockwood I feel can be like a second father figure to me. He kept it real the whole time. We would talk for hours about anything, not always about football. We really got along when he did home visits with me."The firing of Dennis Erickson is what led to Allah decommitting and while he is happy with his choice to sign with Arizona, he admits that if Erickson wasn't let go, he would have signed with Arizona State.Allah says that he could play multiple spots in the secondary, "They want me to play corner but think I can be big enough to be a safety. I think I can make an early impact. The coaches plan t shuft me arund and use me in nickel packages," Allah says.Colorado, Wyoming, Utah State and Montana also offered the 6-1 190 pounder.Allah made 34 tackles and 1 INT for the Rattlers in 2011. He plans to major in business or communications.
