Sporting News: Cal lands two SN100 players, Allen and King

They were high school teammates for a short time in Greensboro, N.C., before one of them moved out of state--but now they'll be training together again.  Sporting News' No. 58 prospect, DE Gabe King, and No. 70 prospect, DB Keenan Allen, both signed with Cal today. Allen had been an Alabama commitment since November, but when his brother, Buffalo sophomore quarterback Zach Maynard, transferred and was on the market, Allen wanted to play with his brother. Alabama wouldn't offer Maynard, so Allen dropped his pledge to the Crimson Tide.
Maynard will also join the Golden Bears, as well as another of Allen's prep teammates--four-star LB Chris McCain. McCain had previously been committed to Oregon.  In a summer interview with Sporting News, King raved about Allen.  "I've been guarding Keenan a lot when we're practicing by ourselves, and I've seen the best of the best, and he's the best by far," King told Sporting News.
