Eggert looking for the right fit

Napa HS OT Braden Eggert has seven offers and is looking for the right fit for college

At the high school level Braden Eggert looks like a man amongst boys. His physical stature of 6'7" 300 creates problems on both sides of the ball and colleges have taken notice.

Seven schools including San Diego State have reached out to Eggert to offer him a scholarship, but no school has separated themselves at this point. "All my options are open right now," Eggert said.

Eggert hasn't had a chance to visit San Diego State, but he'd like to make the trip down this summer. The coaching staff has made it clear to Eggert that they would love for him to become an Aztec, "I like how they're open about their program. They want me to come and check out the school and they want me to be in the program really bad."

"Working on my speed and doing some weight lifting," Eggert said about his offseason priorities.

"My pass blocking and run blocking are pretty equal, but I like run blocking more because you get to hit people more."

With offers still coming in Eggert hasn't set a date for making his decision but he knows when he'll be ready. "Once I go and visit the schools, then I'll decide," Eggert said.

"Academics are really important, but I'm looking for a school who's gonna help me get to the next level."
