DE Dakota Turner was one of the most impressive athletes on the field during San Diego States passing camp on June 10th. He flew all the way out to San Diego from Hawaii for the opportunity to attend this camp. Turner is now the third member of the 2013 recruiting class to verbally commit to San Diego State University.

Turner is an 6’3″, 245 pound athlete out from Kapolei High School in Kapolei, Hawaii. Turner had offers from Army and San Diego State and held interest in USC, Oregon, Notre Dame,Colorado, Hawaii, UCLA and Washington.

This following paragraph is from Dakota Turners Bio on

I was born in North Carolina and lived in many locations both in the US and abroad before settling down in Hawaii; my father is a Marine so our family traveled a lot. This gave me a chance to see a lot of the world and get to know a lot of people and cultures. I’m the oldest of four kids in my family. My priorities in order are God, family, country, education and football. I do well in school and take difficult business classes instead of easier electives. I spend all my free time either studying or preparing for next football season. I train every day, most days twice, one on one strength training, speed and quickness and skills training. My goal is to earn a football scholarship to a good school and from there either play in the NFL or go on to earn my MBA and start my own businesses.

Turner’s Defense Stats for 2011:
-22 tackles for loss -8 sacks -52 total tackles -3 forced fumbles -3 recovered fumbles -1 TD. Turner is an extremely fast athlete for his size. He has played quarterback, tight end, strong and weak defensive end and has also split time at linebacker. With this commitment the Aztecs may have gotten one of the most underrated athletes in America.

Mililani junior football player Dakota Turner was honored Tuesday morning as one of 24 selectees worldwide to the Department of Defense All-American Team.The ceremony included a jersey and certificate presentation by Dr. Randy Plunkett of, which in association with All-American Games and Football University produced the inaugural team.”It’s only open to children of military members, so that’s the difference between that and the Army All-American Game, which is open to all high school players,” said Plunkett.
