Boesch is headed to San Diego State

Santa Monica TE Aaron Boesch (6-5, 230) was one of the top players at his position in the country this year, but it took four-year coaches a while decide what they wanted to do with regards to an offer. Recently, the talented tight end got an offer from San Diego State and he told the coaches almost immediately he was ready to become an Aztec...

"I just talked to the San Diego State coaches a little while ago," Boesch told "I called them last week and asked if they were still interested in me and they said they'd get back to me.

"They did that today and when I talked to them they told me I had an offer from them and I told them 'im in and that I'm ready to be an Aztec'."

Boesch said one of the reasons he chose SDSU over offers from UC Davis and Miami is because of location, but also because of the way they use their tight ends.

"I've watched a lot of their games and I feel like the way they use their tight ends, it fits me perfectly," Boesch said. "I also really wanted to stay closer to home, on the West Coast, and I've been down in the area for a while now and that should be an easy transition for me.

"If I go down there and work hard, I have a chance to play right away so that's what my mindset is right now."

Boesch enjoyed a solid prep career in Oak Harbor, Washington on Whidbey Island, but because he didn't receive much in the way of attention from college coaches, he opted to head south and try and earn a scholarship.

"Actually, this was only my first year of playing tight end," Boesch said with a bit of a chuckle. "I had always been a defensive end in high school, so this is a new position for me and I felt like I improved as the season went on."

This season, Boesch hauled in 26 receptions for 388 yards and five touchdowns for the Corsairs and improved on a week-by-week basis as a blocker in both running and passing situations.

Boesch was a full-qualifier out of high school, so he hopes to sign with a school this month and he will have four years to play three wherever he ends up.
