Isaiah Gourdine, a 6-foot-2 185-pound junior strong safety out of Farmington High School in Michigan, recently picked up his first west coast offer from the San Diego State Aztecs.
The offer was a welcomed surprise to Gourdine.
"It felt great for a team on the west coast to even think about me,"
Gourdine said. "It makes me feel like I'm doing the right things on
the football field."
If San Diego State is able to bring Gourdine into the fold, they will
be adding a player who wants to be part of a winning program.
"Last year, I had to play four different positions, and I was happy to
do it for my team," Gourdine said. "I hate to lose more than I love to win."
Gourdine admittedly doesn't know much about the San Diego State
football program, but he is excited about the prospect of playing at the same school as NFL Hall of Famer Marshall Faulk.
During his junior season at Farmington, Gourdine racked up 95 tackles, five sacks and one interception.
Throughout Gourdine's junior year, he displayed tremendous playmaking ability in the defensive backfield coupled with bone-shattering tackles.
Gourdine isn't only worried about how he will fit into his future
college's football team; he is also concerned about campus life in
college. As a result, the culture of each school and how Gourdine
would fit into each school's student body will weigh heavily into his
In addition to his SDSU offer, Gourdine has offers from Ball State,
Bowling Green, Cincinnati and Eastern Michigan.
At the moment, Gourdine has no favorite school.
Although Gourdine plans on visiting San Diego State in the future, he does not yet know when his visit will take place.
What are Gourdine's goals for his senior year?
"I only have one goal--win state [playoffs]," said Gourdine.
