San Juan Capistrano (Calif.) JSerra shooting guard Rex Pflueger took time out of his busy high school season to stop by Viejas Arena to watch San Diego State take on New Mexico.

"SDSU probably has the best fan base in the nation," Pflueger said of the atmosphere. "Their fans are so committed. They are great. Not only were the student fans great but I also realized that the adult fans and alumni were great. It was fun to watch how into the game everyone was."

The 6-foot-5, 175-pound prospect has also made stops to the Galen Center and Pauly Pavilion this season.

"SDSU is a more fun atmosphere to play in front of," Pflueger said. "I feel like the LA and PAC-12 schools are more business like even though at the same time SDSU has a business like but fun atmosphere."

After the Aztecs destroyed New Mexico 55-34, Pflueger was able to check out the locker room.

"SDSU has a great coaching staff and they know what they are doing," Pflueger explained. "Their defense against New Mexico was just unbelievable and they said that was their game plan before the game so they definitely executed it well."

The 2015 recruit who was in the building for "Midnight Madness" is hoping to come down for another SDSU game this season along with an unofficial visit during the summer.

At the moment USC is the lone school to "officially" offer the sophomore. UC Irvine supposedly offered as well. He's also hearing from the entire PAC-12, Boston College, San Diego State and Harvard.

During the summer Pflueger plays AAU basketball with the Compton Magic. The team has two other sophomore SDSU targets in small forward Cameron Walker and guard Sedrick Barefield.

"Right now I don't know but I would love to play with my brother (Devon) at USC," Pflueger answered if he would like to play with any of his high school or Compton Magic teammates. "It's always been my dream to play with my brother at the next level but I have to keep my options opened."

JSerra is currently (12-7) this season with Pflueger averaging 11.1 points per game.

"I'm more of a pass first shooting guard that still shoots," the sophomore said of his game. "I enjoy getting assists even from the shooting guard position but I also score. I'm more of like a scoring point guard from the two position."
