It was on Monday night that Pomona (Calif.) linebacker Azeem Victor committed to San Diego State.
The latest Aztec stands at whopping 6-foot-4 and 225 pounds!
"When you turn on the film, he's the biggest kid out there," Pomona defensive coordinator Josh Brown said. "Very noticeable when you watch him. He passes the eyeball test so he's going to shoot right away at you on film."
At his size, Victor currently plays a position that's he not being recruited as.
"We have him as a middle linebacker because we need him there but he's definitely playing out of position," Brown said. "You can tell when you're watching him that he's not a true middle linebacker. He is pretty physical, aggressive, athletic kid, runs well; that's one of the things people really like about him when they see him on film. He can actually run to the ball."
"He's probably being recruited as an outside backer in a 30 defense: 3-4, 3-3-5."
How will he fit into the Aztecs 3-3-5 defense?
"He'll probably be an outside linebacker that is physical and can run," Brown said. "He can drop back into coverage. You can blitz him off the edge. Body wise, size wise, he'll fit perfect into a 30 package so I can see why they [SDSU] like him so much."
What stage of development would the latest SDSU commit be considered at?
"He's picking up the game, came here from Lynnwood [High School] last year. Like I said he's playing out of position, he's never even played linebacker. We basically threw him in there [at MLB] and said this is what we want you to read," Brown laughingly explained. "This is what we want you to do. He's actually doing a great job for us."
Pomona defensive coordinator Josh Brown, who has been a high school coach for over 15 years, openly said that Victor reminds him of Eugene Germany.
Victor also holds offers from UTEP and New Mexico State with interest from most of the PAC-12, New Mexico and others.
But there's a catch.
"We just started his recruitment last week," Brown explained. "That's the funny thing. We were working on him, trying to get some things done. Finally got some clips set up."
It was this past weekend that Victor took an unofficial visit to San Diego State for the Hawaii game.
"He talked with the coaches and everything, saw how things worked down there," Brown said. "He was really impressed with San Diego State, coach Rocky Long, coach [Tony] White. Impressed with what they are doing and the direction the program is heading especially them moving to the Big East. He was highly impressed."
San Diego State's secondary coach Tony White was the lead recruiter for the Aztecs 16th commitment of the 2013 class.
6-4 225-pound LB Azeem Victor is an Aztec!
