More on DVC Safety Commit Finefeuiaki
Eighteen high school and two junior college student-athletes signed Letters of Intent on Wednesday to study and play football for San Jose State. However, this is one addition to this class who didn't sign, but will be on the roster this fall.
"Yes," Diablo Valley head coach Mike Darr told Inside Sparta when asked if safety Eric Finefeuiaki had committed to SJSU. "Eric has to finish classes this semester, but loved the program on his trip and wants to stay home."
Finefeuiaki, a local prospect who graduated from Ygnacio Valley High School in Concord, Calif,. took his official visit to San Jose State the weekend of Jan. 20.
DVC was the No. 1 ranked junior college defense in the state in 2011, and Finefeuiaki was a major part of their success.
"Eric was voted Defensive co-MVP along with Morgan Breslin who went to USC in January," Darr said.
The 6-foot-1, 210-pound safety was the second-leading tackler for the Vikings with 59 - 34 solo and 25 assisted. He also had 13 tackles-for-loss, and three sacks.
Finefeuiaki didn't sign with the class on Wednesday as he has one more class to finish at DVC, according to Darr. With the junior college signing period ending on Jan. 15, Finefeuiaki won't sign an LOI, but will enroll at SJSU in the summer.
