It now looks to be down to two schools for offensive lineman Brian Roth of El Toro High School. The problem is that each of his two finalists have things that shine above the other. The talented big man was on the campus of San Jose State this weekend on his official Spartan visit.
"It went really well," Roth said. "The academic part really stood out, they gave a good explanation of what they expect and that's important to me."
The other school in his final two - UNLV - hosted Roth last weekend and they also showed some things that impressed him.
"I really liked the facilities and the amount of stuff they had," Roth said. "I like the helmets their jersey's and shoes, it was all pretty cool."
Sophomore-to-be David Quessenberry was Roth's host, and he had good things to say about the atmosphere amongst the SJSU squad.
"I liked how the players were," he said. "It was really good talking to them and how excited they are about getting the program back on track."
The 6-foot-5, 290-pound Roth said he was down to SJSU and UNLV. However, there is another school that could jump in and shuffle the mix.
"I'm waiting to hear from Utah," Roth said. "If they offer I may take a trip to check them out, then I'll decide."
