Coming out of the spring practice session the future of the quarterback position at San Jose State was looking sparse. For the 2010 season junior Jordan La Secla and freshman Dasmen Stewart were the only scholarship players looking to be available. That portended bringing in a junior college player who could contribute right away.
However, with fall camp now underway the SJSU staff has brought in two quarterbacks with sophomore Jason Kafka out of Bemdji State, and freshman Cory Murphy from Fremont High School in Sunnyvale, Calif. Also, Chad Bozzo is now listed as a junior, which would make him eligible for next season.
Still, the Spartans are looking to bring in one, and possibly two signal callers this recruiting year. One of those with an offer in hand was in attendance at Sunday's practice session.
"The practice was fun, it is really run well," Darius Bell of the City College of San Francisco said. "It is definitely an offense I could see myself playing in. They do everything I like to do."
The 6-foot-0, 218-pound Bell was recruited by several teams while at Riordan High School in San Francisco, but for defense. Bell's dream was to play quarterback so he chose Montana State University. After a short stint in the Big Sky country it was decided he should be closer to home, which brings him to CCSF.
Bell previously told Inside Sparta that he will decide on his next college destination sometime after the season. He added that the University of Memphis is the other suitor showing him significant interest.
