San Diego State three-star commit Dakota Turner recently took his official visit to Montezuma Mesa.
"It was awesome," Turner expressed. "It was good to see the school, hanging out with all the coaches, going to breakfast and dinner. It was real cool. Got to know the coaches a little better and my host plus some of the players. The players were real cool."
The visit to the mainland only reassured the 6-foot-3 and 255-pound defensive end/outside linebacker's decision to become an Aztec.
"I was already committed and stuff but this visit made me realize why I picked SDSU and how good of a decision it was for me," said Turner.
SDSU defensive tackle Sam Meredith hosted his future teammate.
"They hooked me up with him [Meredith] because he has some Hawaii background," Turner said. "He grew up there until like 8th grade. So they had me there with him."
"He's a cool guy. He plays defensive line also so he was telling me how things go over there, types of practices and stuff like that. We weren't just talking about football but we talked about everything so it was real cool."
Titus Failauga and Ualesi Sale (now committed to Hawaii) were also on the visit with Turner as Jake Fely and Micah Seau hosted each of them. Turner is still recruiting Failuaga hard to San Diego State.
In less than 50 days (February 6, 2013), Turner will officially become an Aztec when he signs his National Letter of Intent.
"I can't wait until signing day so I can get the workout from coach [Adam] Hall and start training for when I get there," Turner said. "I've been training already but he'll give me some specific workouts and a diet plan so I'm ready to go before I step on campus."
The highly touted prospect plans on coming for summer session due to graduating from high school in May.
Turner finished his senior season with 92 tackles (41 TFL), 12.5 sacks, 8 forced fumbles, 4 recovered fumbles and a single interception. He led Miliani High School to the state semifinals.
