The average time distance between the Mountain West Conference trio of Nevada, Fresno State and San Jose State from Manteca (Calif.) is two hours and six minutes.
Those universities that are in close proximity of Manteca High 2018 quarterback Gino Campiotti are the ones showering the 6-foot-3, 190-pound passer with the most interest, as Campiotti tells Scout that he’s moving up on the MWC boards.
“I’m getting a lot more love from the Mountain West schools,” Campiotti said, who adds Boise State has shown additional interest. “(Regarding) San Jose State, I talk to their coaches pretty frequently now. It’s starting to heat up more.”
Campiotti adds that Spartans linebacker coach Bojay Fillimoeatu and quarterbacks coach Ryan Gunderson plan to see him soon.
“I mostly talk to coach Bojay. Him and the quarterback coach told me they were going to come out to my school and watch me throw this coming week. That should be fun throwing in front of them,” Campiotti said while at The Nike Opening Oakland regional on May 21 in El Sobrante (Calif.) DeAnza High.
Campiotti combined for 32 touchdowns throwing and running last season for the 12-2 Buffaloes. He recently swung the bat and threw strikes with the Manteca baseball team, which finished the year 20-9 overall.
Campiotti is already no stranger to one of the universities that’s showing him increased intrigue – Fresno State. He took a visit to the campus back in February and is itching for another trip down Highway 99 to tour FS.
“I love everything about that school and I love how they treat their athletes,” Campiotti said. “I love it back there. I want another visit.”
Outside of the MWC, Campiotti has received interest from Sacramento State and UC Davis of the Big Sky Conference.
