San Diego (Calif.) Mira Mesa free safety Trey Lomax took an unofficial visit to San Diego State today.
"It was good," Lomax said. "Got to see a lot of parts of state that I haven't seen before. I was usually just around the football offices but I got a full campus tour, facilities. I got to see the dorms. It was a good experience."
What stood out on the visit today?
"The coaches," Lomax said. "I talked to most of the coaches before briefly but being able to sit down with them - coach White and Gonzalez - it was definitely a good experience."
"Coach Gonzalez, the safeties coach, was telling me that after this year they will be losing about five safeties so it will be a good opportunity to come in and play as early as I could," Lomax said. "They don't play with favoritism and how the best guys play so I'm excited."
As stated in the story posted earlier today, early playing time would be a bonus; how does the chance of seeing the field as a freshman help the Aztecs in landing you?
"I mean the chance of being able to play early would be huge and I fit into their defense very well," Lomax said. "I'm excited and it's something that I want to do is play early."
Coach Gonzalez also discussed with Lomax on how he would fit into the Aztecs 3-3-5 defense.
"When I sat down with coach Gonzalez, he drew some stuff on the board and showed me their defense," Lomax said. "Their defense is pretty much identical on what we run at my school and how I fit into that Aztec position, roaming around and playing the ball."
Lomax was on the visit with his mother and she too, came away very impressed
"My mom loved the staff," Lomax said. "She was enjoying them pretty well. She liked all of them and thinks all of them are real and down to earth. She liked the campus. She's here a lot for business and stuff but there was a lot of stuff she hasn't seen, she liked it a lot."
She even bought a "SDSU Mom" mug at the gift store before they left campus today.
As for where do the Aztecs stand in Lomax's recruitment?
"I like state a lot right now, definitely high on my list," Lomax said. "After today it helped out their situation, it's going to help my decision."
The local 5-foot-11 and 175-pound safety has no set timetable on when he would like to make his college decision but really is in no rush.
"I just want to make sure to look at all my options before I make my commitment because when I make my commitment I want it to be final," Lomax said. "I don't want to de-commit and everything, just want to make the right decision."
