Muldrow says he's a Spartan

He's one of the top JUCO backs in the nation and he's followed up an outstanding freshman season with an even better sophomore campaign, but Sierra RB Lamon Muldrow (5-9, 210) decided he'd like to stay close to home and committed a week ago to San Jose State. Even with his commitment, he's still going to take a couple more visits, but he talked recently about why he decided to be a Spartan...

"I actually visited San Jose State two weeks ago, but I committed last week," Muldrow told on Tuesday night. "It was just a great situation for me because it's in the Bay Area and I have a lot of my family down there and they are losing (Yonus Davis) after this year and I can move in and take that spot.

"When I was there on my visit, they really sold me on that I could come in and be the 'between-the-tackles' guy and then Brandon Rutley would be the speed guy and they will use us in a rotation and that really appealed to me."

Even though he expects to sign with San Jose State in December, Muldrow said he may take one or two more visits before he ultimately makes his final decision.

"I'm totally sold on San Jose State, but I think I'm going to take a visit to either Arizona or Colorado State or possibly both," Muldrow said. "Colorado State just offered me this past week and Arizona plays in the Pac 10, so I really need to look at that, but I'm committed to San Jose State and that's where I think I'm going to end up."

For the season, Muldrow has amassed 759 yards and an amazing 17 touchdowns on the ground, good enough to lead the entire state in that category.

Muldrow is on pace to graduate in December and he'll have three years to play two when he steps on campus.
