There were about 20 high school prospects at the last San Jose State home football game on Oct. 10 against Idaho. One of major interest to Spartan fans is City College of San Francisco quarterback Darius Bell, who was in attendance with his family. Bell has an offer from the Spartans but is continuing to check out his options before making a final decision. However, there is reason to be optimistic.
"I love this offense and could see myself running it," Bell said. "Right now San Jose State is the only serious offer."
On the season CCSF is 6-0 and ranked No. 4 in the country according to JCFootball.com. Bell has 88 completions out of 158 attempts with 13 touchdowns and four interceptions for an efficiency rating of 142.96. He's also rushed 87 times for 477 yards and eight TDs.
Another quarterback that was in attendance is Modesto Central Catholic slinger Dylan Swartz. However, the reason for the visit was more about Idaho then the Spartans.
"My parents got to meet most of the Idaho coaches," Swartz said. "I'll be visiting Idaho after our seasons are over. They run an offense much like we run at Central. Idaho and San Diego State are my top picks right now."
SJSU hasn't offered Swartz.
Also at the game, as he has been for most Spartan home games, was linebacker Anthony Pohahau of Wilcox (Adrian) High School in Santa Clara. No offer yet for the 5-foot-10, 243 pounder but the interest is there.
