San Diego State Football: Aztecs pick up three early 2015 recruits

SDSU football recruiting is on fire, most recently adding three players to its 2015 recruiting class.

According to Scout.com, San Diego State football received verbal commitments from three Inland Valley high school football players to play for the Aztecs in 2015. All three of the new Aztec recruits recently participated in the 2014 "Best of the West" Elite 7on7 Tournament. In fact, they all played on Team Ground Zero, the tournament champion.

First is Mike Bell, a 6-foot-2, 185-pound defensive back from Citrus Hill High School in Perris, California. Rivals.com gives him three stars and ranks him the 66th best 2015 prospect in California. In his junior season at Citrus Hill, Bell helped lead his team to a 13-1 record with his 41 total tackles, one interception and one fumble recovery. Bell made a lot of noise at the recent 7on7 tournament and won the Tournament MVP. He verbally committed to SDSU over Montana and Fresno State, according to Scout.com.

Next up: Jerry Chaney, a 6-foot-1, 175-pound wide receiver from Rancho Cucamonga High School in Rancho Cucamonga, California. Chaney caught 30 passes for 355 yards and three touchdowns this season. Hudl.com reports that Chaney's 40-yard dash time is 4.58 seconds and his vertical is 38 inches. Scout.com reports that SDSU was Chaney's first offer, but according to the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin, Chaney also visited San Jose State, USC and Fresno State.

Finally, the Aztecs picked up Hasani Smith, a 6-foot-6, 240-pound tight end from Upland High School in Upland, California. Scout.com gives Smith three stars and indicates that he had another offer from the University of Arizona. The site also quotes Smith saying that schools like USC, UCLA and Cal also expressed interest in him.

The Aztecs continue their offseason recruiting success. SDSU has now picked up six recruits in the last week: Jake Rodrigues (Oregon transfer QB, former Elite 11 QB), Derek Babiash (Arizona transfer CB), Lucky Radley (Utah transfer RB), and now these three 2015 recruits.
