The visit was good," Alozie says of his visit to the Annapolis campus in Maryland. "I got a chance to see the campus, met with all the coaches, they liked me and I got to watch their scrimmage. I saw some good things, so I would say it went fairly well."

But the Pennsylvania prospect, who is being recruited by Army's Tucker Waugh, also plans on taking a visit to West Point.

"My relationship with Coach Waugh ... it's coming along good and I'm trying to figure out my schedule so I can take an unofficial there for one their games," he adds.
