The San Jose State Spartans have four senior linebackers on the roster for the 2009 season and may be looking to Cody Galea of Franklin High School in Elk Grove, Calif., to help replenish the ranks. Galea is a 6-foot-3, 230-pound outside linebacker who also plays some defensive end. He was in attendance at the recent SJSU camp.
"The coaches there really liked me but they want to see more film," Galea said. "They said they want to look more at my drop-back ability."
Galea reports offers from Sacramento State and Nevada. He had just returned from a visit to Sac State when Inside Sparta caught up with him, and he was preparing to head off for another camp.
"I'll be going down to UCLA for the entire week," he said.
As a junior Galea had 134 tackles and was an All-Delta Vally Conference selection. He said he will make his college choice either at the end of the summer or at the end of his senior season, depending on which offers come in. He wasn't specific on which offer would help him make is decision sooner, and didn't list a top five or a favorite.
