2014 San Diego State football recruiting: Aztecs have huge past few weeks


After a virtual shut down in Football recruiting, the Aztecs opened the flood gates on recruiting!

The San Diego State recruiting trail has picked up and the school has reported nine verbal commitments over the last few weeks according to the recruiting site Rivals.com. The Aztecs have gained depth at quarterback, offensive line, defensive back and Kicker. Yes, Kicker can you say field goal?

Four of the nine players come from JuCo and should help replenish the lack of depth at key positions from graduation losses. The remaining five players are high school seniors who have terrific resumes and are highly recruiting by Big 5 conferences and top mid-majors over the country.
