2019 ATH K.J Trujillo Recaps Visits To BYU, San Diego State, Utah and Utah State

Anaheim (Calif.) Servite sophomore defensive back K.J Trujillo took several visits over the last week and landed a new offer during the trip.


Servite has a ton of talent returning in the class of 2018 and 2019, especially at the skill positions. One player we're excited to watch develop over the next two season is '19 athlete K.J. Trujillo.

Trujillo can play on either side of the ball but corner is where he projects best at. He's a fluid athlete with good cover skills and a solid tackler. He needs to continue to add size and strength but has plenty of time to do so and has a very solid upside to him.

Trujillo recently headed to the mountain region and took visits to BYU, Dixie State, Southern Utah, UNLVUtah, Utah State and Weber State and then stayed in-state and checked out San Diego State on Monday. 

"I enjoyed all the visits, it was a great trip," Trujillo said. "Utah State offered and I really liked it there. I loved the stadium and the coaches were great with me. The elevation was getting to me a little, it was hard to breathe there but I'm sure that gives them an advantage during the season.

"I loved it at BYU too and they said they're very interested in me. I felt very comfortable there and loved the environment. The whole state if Utah was great and I met some really cool people out there."

Trujillo was at Utah for the Utes spring game.

"I spent a lot of time with the coaches and like how much they emphasized academics," Trujillo said. "They stay on top of the players grade wise and they have to meet with counselors and tutors constantly. I think they said 98% of the players who go to Utah stay there without ever transferring out. 

"The facilities are really nice and I liked the weight room, hall of fame and players lounge. Coach Shah is the coach recruiting me and I like him a lot. He's a great coach and a powerful speaker. He graduated from Utah with three different degrees. The fan support was great and I liked the city of Salt Lake as well so it was a great experience. They'll be by to see me in the spring.

"SDSU was nice and I like the area there and location right on the beach. They're also good about staying on top of their players academically and I think I would fit in really well there. I didn't get to meet the head coach or DB coach because a lot of the staff was out recruiting but I still talked to the TE coach and player personal guys so I enjoyed it."

Trujillo said he would like to try and get to San Jose State this Friday and attend UCLA's practice over the weekend. He'll also be at Cal and Nevada's spring games.
