The recruiting cycle for the 2018 class is starting to pick up for the Arizona Wildcats. Offers are starting to go out to potential future Wildcats and one offer found its way to Kazmeir Allen.

The 5-foot-10, 170 pound athlete from Tulare Union High School (Tulare, CA) picked up his Arizona offer on February 9th. Since then his recruitment has started to pick up a little bit. He is sitting at six total offers, with Nevada, San Jose State, Boise State, Hawaii, and Eastern Washington joining the Wildcats.

“I’m not sure yet,” Allen stated on whether there were any offers that stand out. “I want to take visits and see where I fit in best.”

Allen already has some visits that he wants to take and has planned out.

“I will be visiting Nevada, Boise State, Arizona, and San Jose State,” he said about trips that he will be taking this spring and summer.

Allen does have communication with the Wildcats’ staff, but the coach he talks to isn’t one that you would think.

“(I talk to) Coach (Rich) Rodriguez,” Allen explained. “He is the one that offered me. I talked to him last week.”

“My interest is high,” Allen added about his interest in the Wildcats. “They have a good football program and were the first to give me a chance. I’m looking for a good atmosphere and playing time is key.”

Of note, he wants to major in business.

Allen is being recruited as an athlete by all schools, including Arizona. He can play either running back or slot receiver and is an effective kick returner as well. He is a fast and shifty weapon out of the backfield or on the outside. His vision of the field and his ability to spot running lanes are other attributes that stand out when watching his tape.

During his junior campaign with The Tribe, Allen racked up 1,842 yards and 27 touchdowns on 203 carries on the ground. He also totaled 582 yards and seven touchdowns on 46 catches.

His junior year highlights are below.
