An impressive season on the field continues to pay off on the recruiting trail for Fresno State, as the Bulldogs earned a commitment from in-state defensive end Nathan Madsen (Eureka, Calif./Eureka).

The 6-foot-4, 262-pound lineman committed to Fresno State after taking his official visit there this past weekend. He selected the Bulldogs over offers from Air Force, New Mexico, Northern Colorado, UC Davis and UNLV.

"I chose that school because of the great coaching staff," Madsen said. "Both the staff and players get along great, the campus is nice and they have great facilities that are being built. It made me feel at home."

Madsen adds to a terrific defensive haul this week for the Bulldogs. He joins defensive tackle Ioane Sagapolu (Fresno, Calif./Fresno City College), safety Donnell Vercher (Fresno, Calif./Fresno City College) and inside linebacker Jeff Camilli (Shingle Spring, Calif./Ponderosa) as defensive players added to Fresno State's 2013 recruiting class since Monday. The Bulldogs now holds commitments from 10 players in this class.
