"Nervous but excited at the same time."

That's how Tucson (Ariz.) Magnet offensive tackle Antonio Rosales described his National Signing Day jitters.

"Right now it just seems too good to be true," Rosales said of signing with SDSU. "Something I've always wanted. I put all my work, blood, sweat and tears into this. Just the amount of time I have put into this has paid off. It's overwhelming but still too good to be true."

That overwhelming moment will take place early Wednesday morning but he'll be signing a copy of his NLI at 9:00 a.m. PST at his school.

While the moment is big to Rosales, it's even larger to his parents.

"They are very excited," Rosales said of his parents. "Not a day goes by where they don't tell me they are proud of me. It feels so good to make them proud."

Couple of other collegiate programs tried to pry Rosales away from San Diego State but was never a real threat to the Aztecs.

"Nevada asked me if I was 100% sure I wanted to go to SDSU and I told them yes so they left me alone from there," Rosales explained. "I contacted Utah State back and told them I'm set on SDSU. Utah was supposed to offer but never contacted me so didn't have to say anything."

The two-star has been spending his offseason lifting and running as he's "trying to get a lot bigger." He's currently 6-foot-5, 270 pounds which is 20 pounds more since the football season.

"They (SDSU) just said bulk up and that's what pretty much what I did," Rosales added. "Whatever they want to do to me. I will do whatever they say."

Rosales is also currently coaching a Pop Warner team.

Another high quality student-athlete headed to the Mesa.
