Out of high school in Temecula, California, offensive lineman Justin Sattelmaier attended Western Oregon University in Monmouth, Oregon in 2015. After deciding he wanted to give it one more try to make it at the D1 level, Sattelmaier transferred out of Western and into Palomar College, a junior college in San Marcos, California.
After starting at a four year institution, and being a full qualifier, Sattelmaier opted to spend one year at a junior college working on his degree with the intent to transfer out after that year to a second four year institution. A move that helps him preserve a year of not sitting out and helps increase his exposure to college coaches.
Oregon State was the first to offer Sattelmaier this week.
"I really liked all the interactions I've had with coaches and just blessed with the opportunity to play football at the next level," Sattelmaier told BeaverBlitz.
While he does not have an official visit scheduled, he has his mind set on a date. Civil War.
"No visit officially planned, but I'm planning to go up for the Civil War game November 26," he said.
While the Beavers were the first to extend an offer to Sattelmaier, Purdue and San Diego State have been keeping in contact with the 6-foot-7, 295 pound athlete.
Since he does have to spend the year at Palomar to avoid transfer penalties, he would be able to transfer to his next school in May.
