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.
