It is all but assured that San Jose State defensive line coach Kinji Green will remain on staff for new head coach Mike MacIntryre. As such Green has been busy recruiting in Southern California, and has offered a player from a position of great need for the Spartans - offensive line.
"David Peterson of Redlands East Valley High School in CA was just offered a full scholarship to SJSU by Kinji Green," Peterson's father informed Inside Sparta by email on Wednesday evening. "He going on an official visit to SJSU on 01/15/09."
Peterson is a 6-foot-4, 270-pound center from East Valley High School in Redlands, Calif. He also reports offers from Nevada and San Diego State. Peterson's teammate, quarterback Tyler Shreve, has pledged to Colorado State, a school Peterson noted as his favorite in of October 2009.
A three year starter on the varsity team, Peterson was selected First Team All-CIF, according to his father. He is ranked as the No. 22 center in the country by Scout.com. Other accolades include First Team All-Area for both the Riverside Press Enterprise and The San Bernardino Sun newspapers.
