Quigley commits to SDSU


Granite Hills tight end Bryce Quigley has verbally committed to play football for San Diego State University.

Quigley, who will be a senior at Granite Hills next fall, said he made the commitment to the Aztecs about a week ago and that it’s “pretty firm right now.”

He also said that UC Davis and Fresno State had been in contact with him. He will attend a football camp at UC Davis on July 27. But the 6-foot-5, 240-pounder is attracted to SDSU for a number of reasons.

“It’s very close to home,” he said. “My family’s very supportive of me and they love to watch me play. It’s a great area down there with great weather, and academically it’s a good school. They’re building a new program with new coaches and I want to be a part of that.”

Quigley could join at least one other local recruit at SDSU. Hesperia senior-to-be Jay Waddell, a receiver and kick returner, also verbally committed to the Aztecs recently.

Quigley caught 40 passes for 681 yards in his junior season with the Cougars. He’s also played some defensive end, but he said the Aztecs are recruiting him as a tight end. He expects his duties at SDSU will be about 60 percent blocking, 40 percent receiving.

But first things first: Quigley has his senior season at Granite Hills ahead of him.

“I’m just looking forward to playing football and having fun, and working on my strength and my knowledge of the game,” he said.
