Former LSU defensive end Jordan Allen told the Arizona Daily Star
on Tuesday that he will transfer to the University of Arizona.
"I was just ready for a fresh start; something different," Allen told the Star today. "I wanted to find a place where I could come in and help the team and ultimately help them win a championship. Arizona seems like the perfect spot to do that."
Allen is a natural defensive end, but could also play some on the inside for the Wildcats, who are desperately searching for a nose tackle.
Originally from West Monroe, La., Allen visited Arizona earlier this month and said he felt comfortable from the start. He said he chose Arizona over TCU.
Allen will graduate from LSU this semester and head to Arizona in May. He has one season of eligibility remaining and will be able to play this year.
