Fans of State Thunder!

With the football team on a two week hiatus until the away San Diego State game on September 24th, we thought we would update you on some of the latest signings for SJSU mens basketball.

The busy crew over at SJSU picked up its fourth verbal committment of the summer when 2006 guard Kevin Buggs commited to the Spartans and head coach George Nessman during his official visit over to San Jose over the weekend.

Buggs, who stands 6'1 185 lbs and plays at Long Beach Poly, is looking forward to a big senior year for the rising Jackrabbits program.

One of the better defenders in Southern California, Buggs does a number of things well on the floor.

A solid team leader, quality passer, and a versatile performer, Buggs will be a solid 4-year player for the Spartans.

Buggs is also aLefty combo-guard that has a nice stroke from beyond the arc.

His Father is head coach of the Long Beach Poly varsity girls team.

The Southern California scoring guard is developing rapidly, and the lefty shoots with exceptional range and can finish around the rim under heavy contact.

San Jose State head coach George Nessman received some additional fantastic news this past couple of weeks!

The former Golden Bear assistant and his excellent staff picked up a verbal commitment from Ripon guard Justin Graham, a 6'4 combo who had a great summer following a significant ankle injury that ended his junior year prematurely.

With Graham, the Indians could have made a serious run at the Div. 4 CIF State Championship.

Justin joins fellow central California 2006 senior, Oliver Caballero, a 6'9" 240lb center from Alisal High School which resides in the California central coast town of Salinas, also as a Spartans 2006 verbal.

Caballero, who is originally from Mexico, averaged nearly a double-double per game for the Trojans 18-6 team.

The 6'4 155 lbs Point Guard from Ripon high school is one of the more exciting players to watch with young and raw talent.

Graham of Ripon in the Central Valley is noted as a rising 2006 NorCal PG, and has outstanding hops to go along with a nice feel for the game.

These two preps will make nice additions to the San Jose State line-up.

Welcome aboard guys!
