Corona (Calif.) Santiago receiver Jemond Hazely (6-0, 172), got a big boost to his recruitment this week when his first scholarship offer came in.

San Diego State got things going by offering Hazely on the heels of a strong showing at the Aztecs Camp last weekend.

"It was a big relief," said Hazely. "I've been working so hard, me and my dad, doing extra weight training, extra speed training, so it was a big relief and I was thrilled. It caught me off guard a little bit, but I knew I was on their list."

Now he's hoping with that elusive first offer in, more will follow. Hazely said that he's got three more camps coming up, and he hopes to continue the same success.

"I'm going to UCLA this weekend, USC for the Rising Stars and then the San Jose State camp," said Hazely.

Hazely, though, said the Aztecs have his attention right now. "We're definitely talking about a commitment," said Hazely. "I still want to see my options, and go to the UCLA, USC and San Jose State camps. But a commit is definitely strong in my mind."

Hazely and close friend Michael Eubank, who plays quarterback at rival Corona Centennial, have talked about playing together in college.

"If Michael were to get an offer from the same schools I did, that would be great to play with him, but we're both looking at which school is best for us," said Hazely.

Hazely said that besides the four in-state schools he's camping with, he's also hearing from Nevada, Colorado State, Iowa State, Washington State and Fresno State.

"San Diego State has been the most impressive," said Hazely. "UCLA and USC are definitely in the mix still. A good camp anywhere gives you a chance to get an offer."

Academically, he has a 3.0 GPA and took the SAT earlier this spring.

Last fall, Hazely had 44 receptions for 695 yards and scored six touchdowns.
