There is no doubt that Derek Stickney is big, very, very big. At 6-foot-6.5 and 305-pounds he will obviously be a large obstacle for defensive lineman to get around. The big man was in Northern California over the weekend, spending Friday at Sacramento State before heading to the Bay Area and his official visit at San Jose State. Stickney came into the weekend void of any scholarship offers. That changed on Sunday morning.
"Yes, they just offered me," Stickney said in a text message to Inside Sparta. "The trip went very well. I didn't commit because I want to go home first and discuss with with my parents."
With Signing Day on Wednesday and without any other offers, it may be only a matter of time before Stickney throws his hat, and his big frame, in with Coach Mike MacIntyre and crew. Stay tuned.
Be sure to attend the Signing Day Event on Wednesday, Feb. 3 at 6:00 at the Barrett Ballroom in the Student Union on the campus of San Jose State University. Come meet new head coach Mike MacIntyre as he introduces his first recruiting class. You don't want to miss this! You must RSVP to attend this event. Please contact Laurel DeMaria at 408-924-1692 or by email at Laurel.DeMaria@SJSU.edu
