2014 San Diego State football recruiting: Donavin Buck commits to be an Aztec

Joe Nicholson-US PRESSWIRE

San Diego State landed linebacker Donavin Buck this past week.

The second linebacker that San Diego State earned a verbal commitment during their camp this past weekend was Donavin Buck (Brawley Union/Brawley, Calif.), he is on the smaller side at 6-foot-5 and 200 pounds. Despite the smaller frame, he is a three-star recruit and the 40th linebacker in the country.

He also was receiving offers from San Jose State, SMU, Arizona, Washington State, Oregon State as well as Rutgers. Buck's decision to go with San Diego State over those other schools is due to the relationship he has with recruiting coordinator and cornerbacks coach Tony White.

In his junior year Buck had 80 tackles, 21 for loss, 10 sacks and also two interceptions. He basically was all over the field and making plays, and that ability could earn him early playing time. That is the reason why he wants to go to San Diego State:

"I love San Diego State's program, it's the best fit for me and I have a good chance to play there early," Buck said. "I love the way they attack the ball, they go gang tackle everybody. Everybody's hungry, everybody's going after the ball."

However, before he made the decision to go to San Diego State, he had to get his parents on board. Head coach Rocky Long was able to answer all of their questions, and at the end of those conversations, Bucks parents were on the same page as their son.

Here are highlights of Buck:
