Phoenix (Ariz.) Community College offensive guard Lenicio Noble became the 8th commitment for San Diego State in the 2013 class.
"I just committed to SDSU yesterday," Noble said. "I'm really excited for that."
"The fact they are not too far from Las Vegas where I'm from and they are a great school, academically and football wise. I like the coaches and the area. It was the school I wanted to go."
The 6-foot-3 and 280-pound hasn't visited the Mesa since the summer of his junior year in high school but the image has never left his mind ever since.
"I loved it," Noble said. "Weather was nice, it was a lot cooler than I'm used to in Vegas and Arizona. Just the scenery and what college would like. I liked it."
"It was nothing that they [SDSU coaches] did or said to me. Honestly it was where I wanted to go since I was in high school when I started playing varsity football. San Diego State was that school I dreamt about playing in and putting on that uniform."
Noble fulfilled that dream by giving coach Andy Ludwig the great news yesterday.
"He was extremely fired up and happy about it," Noble said.
Noble will step on campus in December or January with one goal in mind.
"It's to come in and compete for a starting job," Noble said.
The newest commit will have three years to play two as he will have a chance to play at the interior offensive line positions.
As for what Noble will bring to the Aztecs?
"Hardworking, tough nosed player," Noble said. "I'm ready to work and learn and just work."
While Noble had no other offers he did receive strong interest from Houston and Memphis. He's only using that as motivation heading into this season.
"I'm working on getting stronger, bigger and faster," Noble said. "Excel in my game to another level. Just play better than I did last year."
With that hard work the future Aztec hopes he will be able to make a bowl game and become an All-American this season.
