A visitor to the San Jose State spring practice and Rising Senior Camp, offensive lineman Shane Moniz of Canyon High School in Canyon Country, Calif., near Santa Clarita is keeping the Spartans high on his list of preferred schools. It also appears the SJSU staff is keeping him in their sights.
"Coach Kenji Green told me he'd definitely come down to see me play this season," Moniz told Inside Sparta. "He said they want to see my play and evaluate my senior season before they could extend an offer."
The 6-foot-4, 260-pound Moniz, whose sister Lauren played soccer for San Jose State, is also getting attention other west coast schools, and a couple of colleges out of the region.
"I've been hearing from Arizona, San Diego State, and UC Davis," he said. "I've also been hearing a lot from Weber State in Utah and Holy Cross in Massachusetts. Holy Cross called me the first day they could in June, and I've talked to their coaches by email."
With no offers yet on the table Moniz is looking to really ramp up the recruiting process after his season ends. He said he'll sit down at that time and evaluate any offers he has at that time and decide which schools will get official visits.
The Canyon Cowboys open the season on Sept. 11 at Bakersfield. Last season the Cowboys lost to Bakersfield 38-32.
