San Diego State continued their hot streak in football recruiting on Thursday night when they added a commitment from Daryl Dunlap, a running back from Troup County High School in Georgia.

What made Thursday the right time to pull the trigger and commit?

"They showed me the most interest and I'm ready for that California style."

Dunlap was hearing from Georgia Tech, Arkansas, Vanderbilt, and Cincinnati before committing to the Aztecs.

Dunlap has yet to take a trip out to San Diego, but that will change this summer. "I'm gonna make a visit to campus this summer, sometime in July," Dunlap said.

Dunlap, who noted that he has very strong grades, has set some goals for when he arrives on the San Diego State campus.

"I want to come in and be the number one running back and leave with 2 degrees in engineering and earth science."

San Diego State had been recruiting Dunlap since January and he was pleased with what they had told him. "I liked that the coaches gave me information about all the running backs that came through there," Dunlap said, "And I like the weather in San Diego."

Dunlap is currently filling his time in the offseason with daily workouts, "I'm doing agility and speed workouts with a lot of stretching, that's a key."

With nine months until signing day Dunlap maintained that he is set with his commitment to the Aztecs, "It's first come first served. I'll listen to other colleges, but on signing day I know who I'm gonna sign with and that's gonna be the Aztecs."

"I'm a big, physical running back, it's gonna be very hard to stop me," Dunlap said. "I want to work on my speed and get to at least a 4.4 40 time before I get to SDSU."
