Ngata eyeing Power-5 schools

San Jose State offered three-star outside linebacker Ariel Ngata recently, but he seemingly confirmed that the Spartans are out of the hunt.

"I'm focusing on the Power 5 schools and really the Pac-12 schools," said Ngata.  "Nothing is for certain right now, everything is still open.  But I'm heading towards a decision before the season."


Cureton backs up the hype

Scout Recruiting Analyst highlighted the top performers at the Passing Down 7v7 Tournament in Fontana. San Jose State’s 2017 QB commit Kaymen Cureton made the list.

“Cureton had a strong day and is developing nicely as a next level quarterback. He has always had a live arm and spins the football well but he looks much more comfortable with reads and recognition, throwing the ball early and on time and showing nice touch on the deeper throws as well. He can get the ball down the field but doesn't have to wind up or over throw it because his arm is so strong and it helps with his accuracy. He's a current commit to the San Jose State Spartans but schools like the Boston College Eagles, Hawaii Warriors and LSU Tigers are all coming hard.”

Alex Cook’s stock is skyrocketing

Sacramento (Calif.) Sheldon wide receiver Alex Cook received his first offer from San Jose State last summer, and he was excited about it, but the secret is now out on him. Schools like UCLA and Washington joined a total of 10 schools to offer after SJSU. He is also ranked ninth in California for the 2017 class.

Cureton lands LSU offer, Spartans still on top

San Jose State’s 2017 QB commit Kaymen Cureton is picking up big offers, which included LSU at the beginning of March.

"I picked up one from LSU and that's pretty big," Cureton told Scout’s Greg Biggins. "I really wasn't expecting it, I was talking with Coach Raymond and then he told me they liked me and are offering me a scholarship, I couldn't believe it.”

Cureton remains committed to SJSU despite the big-name schools, though he’ll be considering them.

"I'm still a solid commitment and have a great relationship with the coaching staff," Cureton said. "I have a great comfort level with Coach Borges and Coach Caragher and that's big for me. If I find a school that can make me as comfortable as San Jose State, I'll think about other schools but for now, I feel good about where things are at now.

"Don't get me wrong, I'm open to listening to other schools but my commitment is still solid. I'll do some visits though. I'm going to camp with Utah and I'll take a visit to Boston College as well. I've been to SJSU twice before and I'm sure I'll be up there again as well later in the spring or summer."
