San Diego State Adds JUCO Wide Receiver To Help With Depth

The wide receiver depth was the key question for San Diego State this year, and it took a hit when they lost Dominique Sandifer and Jay Waddell for the year due to injury. Now the Aztecs are getting some relief by adding junior college transfer Aldodius Colquitt who joined the team on Wednesday which was the teams third practice. Colquitt was expected to play at Oregon State, but he did not qualify academically so he went the junior college route and played at Golden West college where he was limited by a hamstring injury. He did catch 36 passes for 411 yards and six touchdowns in eight games last year.

Even though the Aztecs have been limiting the amount of junior college players they are accepting, head coach Rocky Long made an exception when he discovered Colquitt during the spring evaluation period and said, "we think he's a pretty good player."

This add is key because on the current Aztec roster has only one player who caught a pass from 2010, and that is sophomore walk-on Dylan Denso, who had four receptions last year. The freshman will need to step up and produce early on. They have a great quarterback to get them the ball, so it mostly will come down to timing and the ability to learn the playbook for the new wide receivers.
