Earlier in the recruiting year Inside Sparta predicted the San Jose State football program could take as many as three quarterbacks in the 2010 recruiting class, and one of those would be from the junior college ranks. Well, on Monday the junior college part of the prediction came to fruition as Matt Faulkner of Mount San Antonio College became the second signal caller to pledge to the Spartans.
Faulkner took an official visit to SJSU on Jan. 8 and only needed a little over a week to make his choice.
"Matt committed to San Jose State today," Tom Faulkner, Matt's father, told Scout.com by email on Monday. "It is a fantastic opportunity for him."
Faulkner is a 6-foot-2, 205-pound player originally from Texas. He led the Mounties to both the Junior College State and National Championships in 2009. Mt. SAC defeated the College of San Mateo by a score of 7-6, with the lone Mountie score a 64-yard strike from Faulkner to Michael Harrell. He finished the game with 162 yards passing on 10 of 22 attempts, and was named the offensive player of the game.
