In hindsight, Dakota Allen’s Friday-night decision to commit to Texas Tech was just as big as any of their previous 17. Defensively, the decision was monstrous.
Allen, the high three-star linebacker from Houston Summer Creek, announced his verbal commitment to the Red Raiders via Twitter and confirmed the pledge in a phone conversation. A 6-foot-2, 223-pound inside linebacker, Allen chose Texas Tech over TCU. Allen also had offers from Big 12 schools Oklahoma, Kansas State and Iowa State, in addition to other programs.
