SJSU Gets First Commitment From The Weekend

The second big recruiting weekend for the San Jose State football is still going on, with visitors coming in throughout the weekend. However, head coach Mike MacIntyre did receive the verbal commitment of a defensive star. Inside Sparta spoke Sunday afternoon with the newest Spartan.

Having grew up and lived in San Jose for 18 years, Brad Kuh had never set foot on the San Jose State campus. This weekend was his first trip to 7th and Alma, and now he'll be spending at least the next four years there.

"I did commit," Kuh, of Bellarmine High School in San Jose, told Inside Sparta. "It just felt right, everything about far exceeded my expectations."

The 6-foot-2, 220-pound Kuh becomes becomes the 8th verbal commitment in this recruiting class. He said his teammate, Joe Gigantino, did not make his pledge and is still deciding between SJSU and Cal Poly. Inside Sparta will have more on Gigantino's visit.

Kuh is yet again another prospect with very little knowledge of San Jose State who was wowed during his visit. That seems to be a common thread among those who have pledged to be Spartans and is a testament to the program that second-year coach MacIntyre is putting together.

Junior tight end Ryan Otten was Kuh's host, and he said they hit it off right away. Kuh echoed a common theme found among those visiting and getting close the the football team.

"I really liked the way the team is around each other," he said. "They are so close, it's something I want to be a part of."

Kuh most likely won't be the only pledge from this weekend. He said he felt MacIntyre was looking to get decisions from several other visitors as soon as this evening.

Becoming a Spartan isn't the only good news this weekend for Kuh. The Bells will be traveling to Carson, Calif., on the 16th to take on Santa Margarita in the CIF Division 1 State Championship.
