San Diego State lands local lineman


San Diego State picked up a commitment over the weekend from offensive lineman Nico Siragusa (San Diego/Mater Dei).

Siragusa was expected to visit New Mexico State this past weekend and had a trip lined up for Nevada next weekend. He decided he was ready to end the process and canceled all trips.

“I committed on Sunday,” Siragusa said. “The more I thought about it, the more I realized what a perfect fit San Diego State was for me. I took my visit in December but I’ve been up there a few other times and always get a great vibe and feel very comfortable there.

“I liked the idea of staying close to home and playing in front of my friends and family. The program is on the rise, I like the coaching staff a lot and I’m close with a lot of the commitments. Some of the guys have been recruiting me and it always feels good to feel wanted. I thought about taking my visits just for the heck of it but I was ready to get this over with.”

Siragusa also visited Fresno State and turned down offers from Colorado, Fresno State, San Jose State, SMU and Washington State.
