SDSU Football Recruiting Update 2016

San Diego State is coming of one of the best seasons in school history at 11-3. SDSU is losing some seniors due to graduation but the major players have decided to not go into the NFL draft and return for their senior season. Those players include Mountain West Defensive Player of the year DB Damonte Kazee, Mountain West Offensive Player of the Year Donnel Pumphrey and Safety Malik Smith.

We have decided to take a small look at the 2016 recruiting class with national signing day right around the corner. The Aztecs continued to pad the offensive line with seven commits so far in 2016. The average height of the seven commits is 6 foot 5 inches and the average weight is 310 pounds. Now let’s breakdown the Aztecs wide receivers. The Aztecs currently have 11 wide receivers on the roster. The average height of those 11 WR’s is 6 feet and the average weight is 192 pounds. The Aztecs are adding some needed size to the receiving core with four commits whose average height is 6 foot 3 inches and average weight is 198 pounds.

The position that I am most excited about for the 2016 football season is quarterback. San Diego State will have a quarterback battle in 2016. SDSU added a new QB over the winter break in Jimmy Walker. Quarterback Jimmy Walker has two years of eligibility left at the college level after playing at Cerritos College in Norwalk, California for two years. Walker threw for over 3000 yards and 30 touchdowns during his sophomore season. If you want to check out his (HIGHLIGHTS) just click on the bold text. Walker has enrolled early at San Diego State and is already practicing with the team. Expect a fun quarterback competition between RS SO Christian Chapman, SR Jake Rodrigues and JR Jimmy Walker.
