San Jose State 4/3 Spring Practice visitors

There were several high school players wandering the sidelines of the Spartan practice field during Friday's session. Two are of interest to San Jose State fans.

There were two players in attendance at Friday's session of the San Jose State football Spring Practice. One is familiar to Inside Sparta readers - running back Daniel Porter of College of San Mateo. The 6-foot-0, 195-pound Porter reports a blistering 4.38 in the 40-yard-dash and while he doesn't yet have an offer from the top division, he says he is very interested in San Jose State, and my walk-on this fall.

A new name for Spartan fans, and a player who may be a preferred walk-on, is center Justin Wells of Saugus (Calif) High School. A preferred walk-on is a player that is invited by the coaching staff to join the team without a scholarship. Many times a scholarship is awarded at a later date. Wells was selected as a First-Team All-Foothill League lineman after his senior season. His mother accompanied him on the sidelines.
