Aztecs pick up JuCo Quarterback commitment

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODA

San Diego State goes back to Junior College and adds their third Quarterback for the class of 2014 in Brad Odeman.

The SDSU Aztecs signed quarterback Brad Odeman from Ventura College after taking his official visit this weekend. Odeman will be the third QB commitment for the 2014 recruiting class. Odeman a 6-foot-2, 220 pounder threw for 3,293 yards and 28 touchdowns this season and led the Ventura College Pirates to a 6-5 record. Ironically Ventura College is where special teams standout and former walk-on Tim Vizzi played his JuCo football.

Odeman contacted the Aztecs first and piqued the interest of quarterbacks coach Brian Sipe; he will be a spring admission and then compete with starter Quinn Kaehler, ex-starter and current backup Adam Dingwell, red shirt freshman Chase Favreau and incoming freshman Nick Bawden from Los Gatos High.

"Coach (Brian) Sipe just called me up and offered me, I'm officially an Aztec," Odeman said "The whole time I was just smiling. I'm so blessed and really thankful that they would want me to come down there and play for them. I've been dreaming for this day for a while, I always wanted to play Division I football so I couldn't be happier. I'm looking forward to it, man. I'm really excited."

According to Rivals.com, Odeman said "It's going to be a good competition. But I'm just coming in with the mindset of working my butt off in the weight room, earning the respect of the guys first and just doing my best out on the football field. I'm going to go out there and show what I got and hopefully my best is the best and I'll be able to be the starter. But that's obviously every quarterback's goal, or at least it should be otherwise I don't think you should be back there, but I'm going to do everything I can to be in the best situation possible. It's going to be a competition, it's going to be a good battle and I'm ready for it. I'm ready for the ride."

Odeman chose San Diego State over offers from both Northern Colorado and the College of Charleston while also receiving strong interest from MWC schools including:  San Jose State, UNLV, Utah State and Toledo. Unlike many of the recent Aztec commitments, he said he will not be considering any potential offers moving forward and is set on signing with San Diego State.
