San Diego State picked up their second commitment for the 2014 class on Saturday night when Perris (Calif.) Citrus Hill running back William "PJ" Walker decided to pop for the Aztecs. The 5'10", 190 pound Walker ran for 1,922 yards and 34 touchdowns in his junior year as the Hawks finished the season 14-0.
He had taken visits to both San Diego State and Boise State the last few weeks and received offers from both teams. "I didn't want to wait and miss the opportunity. San Diego State fits me," Walker said as to why it was the right time to decide on the Aztecs.
Walker developed a good relationship with running back's coach Jeff Horton over the course of the recruiting process. "(Horton) said he wants me to get bigger and stronger. Their pro style offense fits me. They were straight up with me the whole time," Walker said about his experience with San Diego State during his recruitment.
Walker's decision to commit to San Diego State over offers from Boise State and UNLV was pretty simple, "Because their offense was a better fit for me." There are several things Walker wants to do before he gets to San Diego State in the summer of 2014, "I need to get bigger, improve my pass blocking, and work on my vision." Also on that list is to finish his upperclassmen career at Citrus Hill without a loss. "We're trying to win CIF again and go back to back," Walker said of the team's goal for next fall.
Walker took an unofficial visit to San Diego State about two weeks back and loved what he saw. "Everything on campus is close, I don't need a car to get around. I like the weight room. They use the old school lifting style that my dad taught me," Walker said of his visit to the Mesa.
As for any possible wavering between now and signing day, Walker said he's "for sure" about his commitment to the Aztecs. He joins Serrano HS LB Jay Henderson as San Diego State commits for 2014.
