Scouting the WAC: San Jose St

Years' ago the Spartans were annual contenders in the former Big West, making an occasional appearance in the California-Raisin Bowl (now the Vegas Bowl). Just when it seemed they were turning the corner three years ago, the program finds itself "wallowing in the mire" after a coaching controversy and the outlook is bleak, so much so that their number one pro-prospect (and a good one at that) has already signed up to play in the Blue Gray Game on Christmas Day.

The only player that will get serious draft consideration, and justifiably so, is tackle Tim Provost, a prospect we've been high on for two seasons. A tall, angular lineman, Provost is a decent athlete with solid skills in pass protection and a blocker that uses leverage, balance and strength to overwhelm defenders. To this point he's a better pass protector than run blocker and is a tackle with a good amount of upside potential. Charles Pauly is an explosive wide out known for breaking the big play and impacting the game returning either punts or kicks and should get into a camp next summer while junior receiver Tuati Wooden has some potential for the future if he starts to pull his game together.
