Batiste Keeping Optimistic

Though Upland (Calif.) cornerback Delvin Batiste recently parted ways with San Diego State, he's keeping optimistic...

Upland (Calif.) cornerback Delvin Batiste was a long-time San Diego State commit, but recently received news that his spot on the team was no longer available.

"They said that since I didn't play cornerback this year, they didn't want to use that scholarship, so they were going to pick up a Junior College corner," he said.

Now, with just a few months left until Signing Day, Batiste is trying to keep optimistic while he explores other options.

"I haven't been hearing from anyone yet. My coach has talked with Boise State and San Jose State, but I haven't spoken with them yet. It's just hard because I didn't play corner this year, so I don't have any corner film," he said.

Batiste played outside linebacker for the Scots last season, but is looking forward to this weekend, where he will show off his talent at defensive back during Sunday's California Classic All-Star Game.
