New, 1 comment

2017 Texan Caden McDonald, along with fellow Texans Matt Brown and Cam Roane have officially committed to the Aztecs.

If San Diego State keeps landing talent from Texas, the Aztecs will have to change their motto to: "Don't Mess with SDSU."

For a while, three-star outside linebacker Caden McDonald, from Northwest High School in greater Fort Worth, has been making rounds to a number of excellent programs.  It had been reported that he had a good visit at San Diego State, but still thought over the decision while visiting universities throughout the country.

The 6-foot-2, 210-pound linebacker drew the conclusion yesterday to play football at San Diego State over offers from Bowling Green, Army, Air Force, UTSA, and a few Florida programs. McDonald understands that the Aztecs are on the rise.

Caden McDonald is an aggressive linebacker who plays the middle and the edge.  He has a good first step off the snap.  He is a strong blitzer, and has instinctive pass-rushing ability and closing speed- with a verified 4.25 shuttle time.  McDonald's position versatility is huge.

San Diego State now has three commitments for 2017 and all are from Texas. In addition to McDonald, talented defensive end Mark Brown from Arlington Heights, Texas, also committed to the Aztecs yesterday.  The two Texans join three-star killer quarterback Cam Roane.

It's still very early in the 2017 recruiting cycle from a rankings standpoint, but the Aztecs' "Texas triple threat"  will help make them formidable in the 2017-18 season.
