The former ESPN four-star recruit chooses SDSU over Miami, Texas, Utah State and Michigan.

According to Rivals.com and the San Diego Union-Tribune, former University of Oregon quarterback Jake Rodrigues has signed with San Diego State University for the 2014 season. He chose to transfer to SDSU over Miami, Texas, Utah State and Michigan.

Rodrigues, a 2012 Elite 11 Quarterback, was a four-star recruit coming out of Whitney High School in Rocklin, California. ESPN.com ranked him the 12th best quarterback in the class of 2012 and Rivals.com ranked him the fifth best pro-style quarterback. He originally committed to Oregon over schools like Nebraska, Michigan, UCLA and USC.

Rodrigues, who stands at 6-foot-3 and weighs 217 pounds, didn't play much as a Duck, only completing 3 of 6 passes for 67 yards, one touchdown and one interception as the backup in 2013. He will have to sit out the 2014 season due to NCAA transfer rules, but will be eligible to play as a redshirt junior in 2015.

Rodrigues signed with the Aztecs while dining with the coaching staff on Friday, according to Rivals.com.

"Coach (Sipe) talked about me just making plays and leading the team, putting our players in the right situation, being a leader, throwing the ball in the right place and being accurate," Rodrigues told Rivals.com. "I've also been blessed with athleticism in my feet so I can run if I have to. They're really excited, I'm really excited and I can't wait to see what comes of this."

ESPN.com identified accuracy, arm strength and reads as Rodrigues' biggest strengths.

Senior Quinn Kaehler will most likely start for the Aztecs next year. As of now, SDSU will have redshirt junior Rodrigues, redshirt sophomore Chase Favreau, senior Brad Odeman, sophomore Nick Bawden and sophomore Christian Chapman on the quarterback depth chart in 2015.
