Santa Monica (Calif.) 2013 shooting guard Jordan Mathews was on the San Diego State campus yesterday for an unofficial visit.
"It went well," Mathews said. "I liked it a lot. I like the campus and coach Steve Fisher is really cool. My dad is really close with coach Dutcher. It was a good visit. I liked it."
"We walked around first," Mathews said. "We saw the campus, what the school had to offer and the arena. I watched Rashad Muhammad play with his high school team in the Rec Center for a while and we went in the office to talk about things."
The three-star prospect officially earned a scholarship yesterday after some confusion.
"They offered me a scholarship, well they said they already offered, and they are in need of my position because [Chase] Tapley and [James] Rahon will be leaving," Mathews said. "They said they really like me and there is a need in my position."
"It feels good," Mathews said. "I'm excited about it. It's good."
The 6-foot-3 and 180-pound scorer would be an ideal wing for the Aztecs.
"I think I fit in well," Mathews said. "I like their system, coaching staff. It was a good visit overall. I liked it."
What impressed Mathews the most on his visit?
"The way Kawhi Leonard developed," Mathews said. "That really stood out to me. I saw him in high school and I thought he was good but he really developed while he was there."
Mathews was recently offered by USC at their team camp and Miami is the latest school to show interest. He has no favorite at the moment.
What does a school need to land the California Supreme guard?
"A family atmosphere and to be close with the team," Mathews said. "I just want to go somewhere that I can get better and go to the tournament every year."
