Three-star offensive tackle Riley Sorenson from Santa Margarita HS (Calif.) was offered by San Diego State last week, and Aztec Report got a chance to talk to him about his recruiting process.
SDSU's offer to Sorenson seemed to come from out of left field to him.
"Honestly, I was kind of surprised when they offered because I had no previous contact with them," said Sorenson. I was really excited when it happened though."
However, the offer shouldn't be a huge surprise to SDSU fans and outsiders. The Santa Margarita HS team is stacked with talent, and the Aztecs have been heavily scouting the squad.
Sorenson is one of five Santa Margarita players who have been extended offers by SDSU.
Going forward, Sorenson's recruitment process with SDSU will be a learning process.
"Personally I don't really know much about the SDSU program," Sorenson said. "I am anxious to learn more about it as I progress with them though."
Kevin McGarry is the coach heading up the recruitment of the 6-foot-5 and 335-pound offensive lineman.
Sorenson's college decision will be based on a number of factors.
"My most important aspects of a college are education, school atmosphere and football," said Sorenson.
What makes Sorenson stand out from other offensive tackles?
"As an offensive tackle, I feel like my size, my feet and my mind are the strongest parts of my game," asserted Sorenson.
Sorenson's highlight of his junior season was winning the state championship.
Which schools have been courting Sorenson besides SDSU?
"I have offers from California, Washington, Washington State, SMU, and Colorado," said Sorenson.
Thus far, Sorenson has no plans to attend any offseason camps. In the meantime, Sorenson is working to become a better player.
"I have been improving on my speed and strength over the offseason," said Sorenson.
"I have no current plans to visit SDSU, but during the summer, I think I will take a visit down there," said Sorenson.
Sorenson has no target date set for committing to a college.
