Dakarai Allen is one of the best small forwards in the nation. Dakarai Allen is from Sheldon High School and AAU: Play Hard Play Smart from Sacramento, California. Allen is 6’5 and weights 172 lbs. Dakari Allen holds offers from Colorado, Oregon State, Pepperdine, Saint Mary’s, San Diego State, San Francisco, UCSB, UCLA and USC, Allen has interest in Arizona, Arizona State, Cal Poly, California, Gonzaga, Loyola Marymount, Oregon, Providence, Stanford, UC Davis, UNLV, Utah, UTEP, Washington and Washington State.
Dakarai Allen is a long wing with significant upside. He’s a terrific defender who is at his best in the open court, where he makes the right pass or slashes to the basket. While he can knock down the open three, his shot is still inconsistent and it’s a definite area of improvement moving forward. Allen’s offense needs to improve but his length and athleticism give him very good building blocks to improve on and his ceiling is quite high. Scout.com
Dakari Allen could be the second highest rated player to come to San Diego State right behind Winston Shepard. This is a big day in recruiting for San Diego State!!
Just got off the phone with 4-star wing Dakarai Allen. He confirmed to me he’s coming to SDSU. I’ll have a story up soon.

SDSU may have gotten the West Coast’s top defender in back to back classes in Dakarai Allen in 2013 & Winston Shepard in 2012.
