Tonight two young men’s lives will change for ever! San Diego State University commits Dakarai Allen and D’Erryl Williams will both sign their National Letter of Intent tonight at 7 p.m. at Sheldon HS (Sacramento California). Dakarai Allen and D’Erryl Williams are teammates at Sheldon High School. Dakari Allen committed to San Diego State on September 12th 2012.
|Dakarai Allen||SF||6-5/172||ESPN Top 100|
Allen is one hell of a player and will become a great fit on next season’s San Diego State squad. Allen is ranked on the ESPN top 100 list and is one of the best defenders in the nation! I would compare Allen to one of San Diego State’s best defenders in Malcolm Thomas.
SDSU may have gotten the West Coast’s top defender in back to back classes in Dakarai Allen in 2013 & Winston Shepard in 2012. — Josh Gershon (@JoshGershon) September 12, 2012
At the time of Allen’s commitment he held offers from California, Colorado, Oregon State, San Francisco, USC and Washington State. This is one recruit that should show San Diego State Fans the transition to the Big West conference will in no way hurt the Aztecs recruiting efforts.
Williams is a beast at going to the rim and he utilizes his long arms and strength to get rebounds and score! Williams is a player and will become a great fit on next season’s San Diego State squad. D’Erryl Williams became the first player in SDSU history to commit to SDSU during Midnight Madness! We would compare Williams to that of a Billy White. Below is a short paragraph from UT San Diego on Williams Commitment.
“He had a perception of how things would be here,” said D’Erryl Williams Sr., his father. “The reality was better than the perception. It doesn’t get any better than that. He said, ‘Dad, I don’t need to visit anywhere else.’” UT San Diego
At the time of Williams commitment he held offers from Fresno State, Loyola Marymount, Marquette, San Diego (USD) and San Jose State. This is another recruit that should show San Diego State Fans the transition to the Big West conference will in no way hurt the Aztecs recruiting efforts.
