2024 four-star DB Jaden Allen decommits from Texas

Four-star defensive back Jaden Allen has backed off his commitment from Texas. Instead, Allen is reopening his recruitment with offers from Alabama, LSU and others.

247Sports composite rankings list Allen as the No. 18 cornerback and one of the top 300 players in the nation for the 2024 cycle. Allen is an excellent athlete, starring on both the football field and the track.

Allen is the younger brother of Texas sophomore defensive back B.J. Allen. He helped guide Aledo to a 5A Texas High School State Championship victory this season as a junior in 2022.

Alabama and USC have been pushing Allen in recent weeks. Expect Texas to keep pursuing Allen as the process plays out.

Texas’ 2024 class currently stands with three-star quarterback commit Trey Owens and four-star athlete Hunter Moddon. Steve Sarkisian and his staff are looking to build another top-five class.
