Oceanside High School has been notorious over the years for producing big time talent, many of which have traveled south and continued their football careers at San Diego State.

Jace Whittaker, the brother of current Aztec J.J. Whittaker, picked up an offer from San Diego State last week, adding to his offers from Arizona, Boise State, Nevada, and Washington State.

"It would mean a lot, I've always wanted to play with (my brother). Its' something different and something I've been wanting."

Whittaker's teammates at Oceanside, Alijah and Mikah Holder have the same choice to make in terms of playing with their older brother King, a junior defensive back with the Aztecs. Whittaker and the Holders have several scholarship offers in common and it's something they've thought about.

"We'd like to play together at the next level, it will have a little factor in where we're choosing."

Whittaker insists at this point in his recruitment that no schools are sticking out, and no school is recruiting him harder than another.

"There all on me about the same," Whittaker said. "I'm pretty open to the whole thing, I just want to play ball at any school at the college level."

Having a brother playing on the team, Whittaker is no stranger to San Diego State and the football program.

"They tell me they really like me and how I play. I can fit into the defense and come in and hit the ground running. It's southern California and close to home, I think its great. You can't really complain, its one of the best cities in California."

Whittaker isn't close to picking a school, but when he does he has a good idea of what he's looking for.

"I'm just leaving the board open right now, I don't have an answer to when I'll commit," Whittaker told me. "Academics of course, life after football and all that good stuff is important."
